30 March 2024 Dear Pawan,
I know it is late reply to your query.
The TDS u/s 194-O is related to the commission charged by the E-comm agency for sales.
There is no mention about the advertising space in 194-O.
Since those are charged extra in your invoices, hence TDS u/s 194C would be applicable.
Other incidental charges are during the course of normal sale, and 194-O is taking care of it as the 1% TDS is on gross sale value.

I am keeping the query as open to have some more experts responses.
