to Beckn Open

A community led development formed to enable a global open digital commerce infrastructure.

Open networks will naturally encourage innovations, integrate applications and platforms, trigger opportunities for every size and form of businesses, create seamless experiences and trigger unimagined possibilities. This is not a commerce under transition. This is commerce being transformed at scale. This is the beginning of a big shift for each and every one of us, who, in one way or the other, are part of the e-commerce world.
