community.

So, no registrations. No memberships. No partnerships. Just a minimal footprint of an open and equally accessible beckn protocol that anyone can use. Multiple businesses and organizations have started using beckn protocol to fuel their digital acceleration. Our credo of being an open protocol creates a level-playing field for any market player, small or large.

Beckn protocol is an open commerce protocol with an abstract core, which is enabling market players to reimagine building seamless digital experiences and networks. This is very similar to how HTTP, while being a simple and open protocol, has fueled seamless interaction between multiple systems and led to an explosive growth in internet adoption.

Beckn Open community is structured so as to simplify and enable community members to self-organize and co-create their own digital playgrounds and networks. The community has been driving growth for themselves as well as for the digital commerce ecosystem.

Since May 2020, beckn protocol has attracted enthusiastic members to come together and contribute in its evolution. The open community includes participants, both big and small, including volunteer organisations and individuals who have devoted their time to adopt beckn protocol and create networks in the retail, mobility and logistics domains.

The open community of beckn continues to welcome visionary businesses and organisations to build their own digital communities and playgrounds in their business domains.
