How to List Products on Government e-Marketplace?

Indian Government has launched a very transparent e-commerce portal, referred to as Government e-Marketplace (GeM).

Any small dealer or a manufacturer who has a GeM registration in his business can access the wide platform. There he can sell his products and services to the distinguished buyers from the Government sector or PSUs, who have a huge requirement for his supplies. This system empowers these small traders and manufacturers to expand their business.

The Government e-Marketplace (GeM), is a business-friendly platform, that facilitates smart online procurement of Goods & Services required by the Government Departments, Organizations and PSUs.

Very importantly, upon the GeM registration process, the dealers, manufacturers and service providers have to list their products & services on their GeM login. This process is called Product listing on Government e-Marketplace. It’s only when the product listing is approved by the GeM Authority, that the GeM products of the seller will go live on the Government e-Marketplace. 

Traders who have the GeM seller registration can then easily sell their products.


Procedure of product listing on Government e-Marketplace

Product listing on the Government e-Marketplace involves various steps. Only after successful approval, any product or service gets available on the GeM portal for sale.

Such steps may differ based on the type of GeM seller. Here are 5 easy steps for listing products on Government e-Marketplace.


#1. Basic information of the GeM Products 

The traders having GeM registration as seller need to mention the General specificaons of product given below:

  • Category of the Product & their sub-category 
  • Name of the product 
  • Product Description 
  • Brand of product  
  • Product Model 
  • HSN Code 
  • SKU id

#2. Quantity of the Product Available

Sellers require quoting available stock on hand of the product. This will help the government buyers to place the order of the products only to the extent of stock available.

The sellers having GeM registration have to quote the price of their product. Given below are different types of the price that are required to be quoted:  

  • MRP  
  • Offer Price (incl. of all taxes) of the GeM products

It is important to note that the Offer-Price must be 10% less than MRP.

  • Size,
  • Height

This is the very crucial stage and the traders who have the GeM registration as a seller have to take some precautions when they upload images of their products on Government e-Marketplace.
