How to register on the AP eProcurement portal?

Registering on the AP eProcurement portal is a quick, simple, and one-time process that can be completed in a few easy steps. This portal is available to individual bidders, international bidders, businesses (public/private limited), partnership firms, LLP, NPO, etc. Here’s a step-by-step guide to ensure you successfully register on the portal:

    • Go to the AP eProcurement portal website:
    • Click on the ‘New Registration’ button located at the right corner of the homepage under user login.
    • Select the type of user you’re registering as, such as ‘Bidder/Contractor’ or ‘Supplier’, based on your company type.
  • Complete the registration form with the necessary information.
  • Click on the ‘Submit’ button.

By following these simple steps, you’ll easily be able to register on the AP eProcurement portal and access it.

Also, the Andhra Pradesh tender portal has also mandated businesses to purchase a Class III Digital Signature Certificate (DSC)  from a registered certifying authority, to ensure the security and authenticity of transactions on the Andhra Pradesh tender portal.

The DSC certificate serves as an electronic verification of the identity of the business and is used to sign electronic documents, including bids and contracts. Once a business has created its AP eProcurement login credentials, the next step is to link your eProcurement account to the registered DSC. The steps include:

  • Insert the drive that contains the DSC into the computer.
  • Log in to the AP eProcurement portal using the login credentials.
  • Click on the ‘Sign in Certificate’ option.
  • From the list of certificates that appear under the ‘Digital Signature: Signing’ box, select the required DSC that is sourced from the drive you have inserted in the computer.
  • Click on ‘Ok’ to complete the linking process.

By linking your eProcurement account to the registered DSC, businesses can ensure that their transactions on the Andhra Pradesh tender portal are secure and legally binding.


  • In case you haven’t installed the emSigner application on your system, it is recommended that you do so to simplify the registration process. This will also be necessary for uploading your DSC (Digital Signature Certificate).
  • Additionally, registered users have the flexibility to modify or update their profiles as and when required. However, please be aware that this does not apply to your ‘User ID’ and ‘Company name’.
