A DIY guide to the Snapdeal seller registration process and get Snapdeal’s seller account and get brand approval to start selling.
Snapdeal seller registration is real quick and requires minimum documentation. All you need is a GST number, email ID, mobile number, and bank details. With these details, anyone can register as a seller on Snapdeal under 10 minutes.
The best part about Snapdeal is its attractive user interface with crisp features. Compared to Flipkart seller registration, I will rate the Snapdeal better.
Now let’s continue with the Snapdeal seller registration process.
Business Details Required for Snapdeal Seller Registration
- GSTIN number
- Name of the business
- PAN number
- Email ID
- Mobile number
- Serviceable Pincode for pickup services
- Registered business address
- Warehouse/Godown address if any (not mandatory)
- Business bank details (current account)
- Scanned digital signature copy
The above information is compulsory except warehouse or godown address. You can register your office or home address as a pickup point. Besides, there’s one condition. The address must have Pincode serviceable by the Snapdeal courier partners.
Besides, the bank details must have a current account in the business name. The system doesn’t entertain savings account. Let me show you how to do it step-by-step with images.
How to Register as a Seller on Snapdeal?
The best way towards hassle-free registration is to procure all business details in a notepad. Once all details are in place, start the registration. I follow this method. It helps me easily access any detail in no time.
1. Enter GST Number
Open the Snapdeal seller registration link in your browser. Enter your GST number and click register now button. Your screen must look exactly like the image below.
2. Enter Email ID and Mobile Number
As soon as you provide the GST number, the system auto-fills your company details. For example, the company name, PAN number, pickup pin code, and the shipping address is auto-filled. Check these details.
Now enter email ID, password, and mobile number. Click the sell now button at the bottom.
3. Mobile Verification
Insert the OTP received on the mobile number and verify the same. Note the mobile number because the support team will verify your account based on the mobile number. Unlike ShopClues seller registration, here, the OTP is not time-bound.
4. E-mail Address Verification
The system will send a code on the email address. Enter the code and verify it. Note the mobile number and the email address as registered contact details in notepad. Keep them available when you contact the Snapdeal seller support for assistance.
5. Bank Details
The Snapdeal seller registration process is almost complete. It’s just the bank details you need to add. I have already explained about bank details at the beginning of this post. Refer to the business details required section above.
To jump the queue, enter the IFSC code, and the rest will be auto-filled. If the details are not auto-filled, don’t panic. You can fill your business bank details manually. Click submit.
Account Setup in Progress
Look at the progress bar below. It displays the Snapdeal seller account setup. Don’t interrupt the setup process by hitting the back or refresh button.
6. Upload Your Digital Signature
Once the account setup is done. The system will ask you to configure the remaining details deemed essential to activate the seller account. Uploading a digital signature is one of them. To do this, you may select either draw or upload a scanned copy.
Hit the submit button when you are done with the uploading process. Your Snapdeal seller registration process is complete. The next thing you see is the Snapdeal seller dashboard. Refer to the image below.
7. First Look: Snapdeal Seller Dashboard
The left panel has seller tools and features. On the right top corner, you can see the company name with the registered email address. Since the account is new and yet there’s no product listing, the system will display the to-do list.
In the bottom right corner, a self-help guide displays what a new seller needs to do after registration. The chatbot in the same bottom right corner will interact in case you need help. It’s an innovative way to give seller support.
Besides the to-do list, there are essential seller details to be fulfilled right after the account is active. Remember, your Snapdeal seller account is active, not LIVE.
A seller account is LIVE only when buyers can access and order your products. For that, you must list the products. And to list products, you need category and brand approval. Let’s do this first.
How to Add a Brand in Snapdeal?
Adding a brand in Snapdeal means taking approval from the marketplace to sell under a private label (your brand). To do this, hover your mouse on the company name in the top right corner. Click manage brands from the drop-down menu item.
Doing this will take you to the manage brands interface. Click add a brand link and proceed. See the image below.
The following screen will appear. Here add your brand name and category in which you desire to sell. Click continue to add logo file.
Based on the brand name, the system will generate a text logo. Either use that or else upload a file of your choice. The image below has logo guidelines. Read them carefully and design your logo as per the system requirements.
Click submit after uploading the logo file. If the uploaded file is as per the required format, the system will accept or else reject it.
Snapdeal seller registration is a pure breeze. I can say this based on my experience with distinct Indian eCommerce marketplaces. Moreover, the brand registry is trouble-free. The system requires minimal details to approve a brand.
How swiftly a marketplace onboard sellers are my metrics of evaluating a marketplace. I guess Snapdeal qualifies in it. Hence, if you already have a presence on Amazon, ShopClues, Flipkart, and Paytm, then you must consider Snapdeal too.
