what we do

We develop open protocol specifications and enable their evolution while working with an ecosystem of participants from civil society, governments and business. Application developers can use beckn protocol and work with businesses to co-create solutions for local commerce. We work closely with various stakeholders in promoting the adoption of an open but integrated digital commerce service


beckn provides consumers the freedom to discover commerce services including day-to-day services like mobility, food and grocery delivery in any consumer-facing application of choice that is beckn-enabled, thereby, making it a one-stop place for availing commerce services


beckn extends the reach of market players beyond self-owned platforms to new customers in a universal open marketplace without compromising on the experience


beckn enables the government to promote an interoperable, open ecosystem of applications to connect consumers to providers, thus, maximizing value to all stakeholders without being monopolized by one or two players
