How SmartHomeMart Classifies the Smart Products?
Included Service Product (ISP)
Product or Bundle or Package in which the service charges are pre-included by the seller. Only sellers/system Integrators local to the buyer’s location are displayed. The buyer can pick up any of the seller based on price and rating. The Seller is then responsible for the provisioning of the material and services both.
Optional Service Product (OSP)
Any product/bundle can be classified as OSP if it is felt that the buyer may need professional service support for the product. When classified as such the buyer is thrown an option for the service support. If buyers opts for the service then only the local sellers are shown to the buyer, else sellers from across the India are displayed.
Do It Yourself Product (DYP)
All other products not classified as ISP or OSP are termed as do it yourself products. All the sellers across India selling that particular product are displayed as sellers and buyer can pick up anyone based on rating and price.
Buyers Payment Options
Apart from receiving full prepaid payment (FPP) as in normal e-commerce transaction, the Seller has an option to offer PROGRESSIVE PAYMENT PLAN (PPP) to the buyers wherein the buyer just pays a part ( generally 30-40%) of the payment on the portal and rest the seller can collect directly from the buyer on product/service delivery. This option is only available for the local delivery products. This is very helpful in winning the trust of a buyer specially in high value products where services too may be involved. Very apt for Home Automation Packages.
Seller Payment Schedule
At SmartHomeMart we settle seller accounts in every 7 days cycle, after adjusting all collectibles and post final settlement amount to the sellers bank account directly. So the seller need not to worry for payment processes. The liquidity in hands of the sellers will remain constant due to shorter settlement cycles. The payment is processed post return/replacement period.
Seller Fee Structure
SmartHomeMart is a class different than the rest of the trading e-commerce marketplace. Considering the exclusive facilities provided, SmartHomeMart has designed the fee structure in very optimal way to benefit the partners.
In an initiative towards “AATM NIRBHAR BHARAT”, SmartHomeMart is making a special effort to contribute towards the same by way of special referral fees for “Make in India” smart products.

For Included Service Products (ISP) or opted buyer request for Optional Service Products (OSP) it is compulsory for the seller to deliver the product to the buyer as these products classify as Local Delivery Products.
