A piece of good news for Walmart sellers! Fulfilling partial orders is now possible with the Walmart Integration app. Until now, if a customer placed an order with more than one product; and the seller had only one of those SKUs available, the complete order got cancelled. This means, if either of the items that constituted the order was out-of-stock, the complete order got cancelled. This cancellation of complete orders resulted in significant monetary loss for Walmart sellers.
Now, the sellers won’t miss sales opportunities due to the cancellation of those complete orders containing a few out-of-stock items. With the feature of partial orders fulfilment, you can ship the in-stock products and overcome the cancellation of the complete orders, i.e, now you can fulfil partial orders with the use of the Walmart Integration app and sell what you have.
Why Partial Orders fulfilment is crucial on Walmart?
A customer won’t know the actual reason for order cancellation. When he places an order, he is simply hopeful about the delivery of his order on the expected date. If you happen to lose a selling opportunity due to the cancellation of a complete order in spite of having a few products in stock, then it’s a big deal. This cancellation of complete orders adversely affects the shopping experience of the customers. And because of this, your sales also decline. So it becomes of utmost importance to sell the partial order to avoid the cancellation of the complete orders because of a few out of -stock products.
The Concept of Partial Orders
Two possible scenarios are possible when a customer places an order on Walmart:
When a customer places an order for two Line Items (i.e., an order is placed by a customer for two different products). Now, if the seller doesn’t have either of the products in stock, the order will be created for one product that is in stock and will be cancelled for the other.
For Example: Suppose a customer places an order for a shirt and a trouser. Now, if the seller has only trousers in his stock and the shirt is out of stock, then the order placed by the customer will be created for the in-stock product(trouser) and will be cancelled for the out of stock product(shirt).
When a customer places an order for one Line Item (i.e., when a customer places an order and the seller doesn’t have sufficient stock to fulfil that order, then the order will be auto-cancelled).
For Example: Suppose a customer places an order for four quantities of a product and the seller has only three quantities of that product in his store. In this case, the whole order placed by the customer will be cancelled automatically.
