Furthermore, Unicommerce experienced a significant 86 percent surge in free cash flows (FCF) compared to the previous fiscal year, rising from ₹7.82 crore in FY22 to ₹14.57 crore in FY23. This increase in cash flow has strengthened the company’s ability to manage higher operating costs, which escalated from ₹54.4 crore in FY22 to ₹84.1 crore in FY23. The increase in expenses was primarily attributed to rising costs related to employee benefits, server infrastructure, and other office-related expenditures.

Unicommerce proudly serves a diverse clientele, including well-known brands such as Lenskart, Fabindia, Zivame, TCNS, Mamaearth, Emami, Sugar, BoAt, Portronics, Pharmeasy, GNC, Cello, Urban Company, Mensa, G.O.A.T, Shiprocket, Xpressbees, and many others.
