What is Angadi
It is your local farmer’s, craftsman’s and nearby small shopkeeper’s online marketplace. Angadi provides digital edge to Shops, Farmers, Craftsman, Self Help Groups and to you as a consumer.
We want citizens to stay at home to remain safe from CoVid-19. By reducing crowd at shops, we want to help citizens maintain social distancing. We want to promote local small business and entrepreneur to sell their products to their nearby consumers. “Buying locally” will propel the local economy thus the national economy.
As a supplier/trader, how can Angadi help me?
You can list your shops with address and contact details and list all the goods and services offered by you. Needy consumers will place orders to you and you can supply to them based on the mutual agreement between you and the consumer. You can avail the service of the “Delivery Persons (DP)” to deliver the goods.
As a Delivery Person(DP), how can Angadi help me?
If you have any vehicle say Bicycle or Two/Three/Four Wheeler you can register in Angadi and you may get transportation jobs from suppliers. If you do not have a vehicle, still you can register as a driver or as a porter or as a person who can walk around and transport goods by hand. You can be DP either for full time or part time.
