Hyperlocal startup,, on Friday, said that it has witnessed a 100% growth in daily orders on the ONDC (Open Network for Digital Commerce) for the week ending May 7.
In a week, magicpin doubled its orders to touch 20,000 a day, according to a press release.
The startup said it doubled its daily orders via its own buyer app and through buyer apps of multiple platforms like Paytm, Phonepe’s Pincode and Meesho.
magicpin joined ONDC in March this year to enable small and medium local retailers in the food and beverage category to get access to more customers.

the best local discovery and rewards platform for the customers,” Anshoo Sharma, CEO & Co-Founder, magicpin said.
“Within the first four weeks of joining ONDC, magicpin scaled from 100 to 10,000 orders a day. In the fifth week, we saw a massive leap to 20,000 daily orders. This represents a 200-fold growth in ONDC’s daily orders through magicpin. We are thrilled to take the network to another level by enabling customers to shop at their favorite local businesses or other retailers on ONDC.”
