The seller must register with GeM

The seller must register with GeM
  • The registration process on Gem Portal is entirely online. Since GeM is a web-based portal for both sellers and buyers, the registration and documents are also different for both of them. Presently, there are two types of accounts on the GEM, i.e. primary seller and secondary seller. These accounts can be created on the Seller account. Keep in mind that there will always be one primary seller or service provider for a company. These entities will, by default, have all privileges assigned to them.
  • Only Primary Seller or Service Provider would have the leverage to create Secondary Seller and/or Service Providers.
  • There can be multiple Secondary Sellers or service providers for a single entity. Secondary seller’s undertakings are subjected to assigned roles/privileges.
  • There is no legal mandate for creating a secondary seller account as it entirely depends on the company’s requirements.
