The company sold around 750 million products, with the most orders coming from Karnataka. BigBasket served a total of 8.5 million households enabled by a fleet of 35,565 delivery partners.

At their busiest, the company delivered 580,000 orders in a single day, while consumers placed most of their orders between 7 to 9 pm.
