ANS Commerce started in 2017 provides various services to companies and brands looking to sell online. ANS Commerce offers services that help brands set up digital storefronts, integration with marketplaces like Flipkart and Amazon, and warehousing and facilities maintenance services.
The Bengaluru-based company ANS Commerce works with more than 100 clients across enterprise, mid-market and D2C (Direct-to-Consumer) brands in different categories. ANS’s key focus is on the D2C segment which is rapidly growing in the Indian market as more brands want to connect with their consumers.

“Our association with ANS Commerce started last year when they were part of Flipkart’s tech startup accelerator program, Flipkart Leap, and we are pleased to welcome the team to the Flipkart group,” said Ravi Iyer, Flipkart’s senior vice president, and head – corporate development.
Even after the acquisition, ANS Commerce will continue to operate as an independent e-commerce solutions platform under its existing leadership team, Flipkart said in a statement.
