As walmart.com is an exclusive marketplace, getting accepted to sell on Walmart.com means higher product visibility and increased revenue with lesser competition – an ideal situation every online seller desires.
However, there are certain steps to complete before you finally begin to sell on Walmart.com. And they are mandatory. Means without completing these steps, integration with Walmart is incomplete.
So, No sales.
Therefore, it is highly recommended to complete these steps at earliest to get started with Walmart.com as soon as you decide to partake with a channel integration partner of your choice.
Following is the PICTURE THAT EACH OF YOU WOULD SEE when you login to your seller panel after being approved by Walmart.
It is mandatory that all the steps must be adhered to and all the associated guideline complied with in order to sell on Walmart.com. Additionally, we would tell you one more requirement which nobody won’t tell you.
1. Complete Signup Wizard.
This step requires filling of basic information the online sellers. In this step the online sellers is required to:
- Enter their FIRST and LAST NAME
- Set PASSWORD
- Set 3 Security Question
Completing this requires less than 2 minutes. Therefore, quickly done with it.
2. Complete Your Seller Profile:
This section is dedicated for filling up your basic business information to help you distinguish from others. This step requires:
- Basic Company Information
- Shipping Information
- Framing and declaring your return policy etc.
Another 2-3 minutes and you’re done.
3. Verify the Penny Deposit Test:
This is to testify that MONITORY TRANSACTION MECHANISM is up and running. In this step, Walmart.com deposits a penny into your account which is credited from your earnings on Walmart.com.
Another whisker of the step.
4. Complete Item and Order Testing:
It is the ultimate and the longest step of all, and completing it would be your penultimate (unless you didn’t fulfill the last guideline) step towards selling on walmart.com.
Here Walmart.com carefully scrutinizes your Store and Channel Partner Inventory Management – Order Creation, Acknowledgement, Order Cancellation, and Refund generation. This rigorous testing, when approved by walmart.com, means your mechanism is ready to go live. Here is how to do it:
When arriving at this step you get a link, which upon clicking redirects to you a page wherein you can publish your products on Walmart.com
You would be required to enter your CREDIT/DEBIT CARD or OTHER TRANSACTION Details.
Now you can order the same product and then comes the two steps
1. Acknowledgment and Cancellation
2. Acknowledgment, Shipment and Refund Generation.
3. Easiest way to sell on walmart.com
As cleared from the step’s name itself, this step requires you to first acknowledge the order and then cancel it, to check the acknowledgement and cancellation mechanism is in order.
Then, again, Order a product, create a shipment and then cancel it and create a refund for the same order. This exercise ensures your Shipment and Refund generation mechanisms are up and running.
This is the longest step but it also ensures that you have a great the infrastructure walmart.com expects from its sellers.
5. UPLOAD 10% of the total CATALOG PRODUCTS:
Once your application for selling is processed by Walmart.com, it demands the catalog list of the products that you’re willing to offer at Walmart.com.
Once you’ve completed all the aforementioned steps and you, still, aren’t getting orders (endless wait to sell on Walmart.com) or, your products still shows under review status. This could possibly be due to that you haven’t uploaded the 10% of the total catalog products submitted at Walmart.com
“Walmart expect from its sellers that either they upload 10% of the total catalog products (earlier submitted at Walmart.com) or, upload 1000 products – whichever is fewer.”
If it takes a few steps towards getting, most probably, an endless stream of orders if your product resonates with the audiences at Walmart.com, then it is the process worth completing at earliest. Besides, it buys you time to understand and get familiar within the respective the integration trial period (differs by platform).
