Online marketplaces in the past few years

Online marketplaces have grown enormously over the past few years, especially in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. The nationwide lockdowns and unending quarantines compelled people to stay home and shop online most of the time.

This switch in consumer behavior attracted numerous sellers to onboard online marketplaces resulting in its tremendous growth. Here are a few examples of various online marketplaces from the U.S. depicting eCommerce growth in the past few years.

  • In its last fiscal year 2020, Walmart’s revenue amounted to 559 billion U.S. dollars worldwide. The retailers’ revenue increased by approximately 7%.

Avail Easier multichannel expansion as Walmart welcomes non-US international sellers 

With the enormous revenue increase in its last fiscal year 2020, Walmart takes new strides forward with global seller expansion. As Walmart opens its marketplace to non-US international sellers, you can now expand your business without worrying about having a U.S. address or Tax ID. You no longer require a U.S.-based website too!

Interestingly, Non-U.S. sellers could sell on Walmart since 2017, but numerous restrictions hindered their businesses.

With this golden opportunity, you can showcase your products to the 400 Million+ daily unique visitors of Walmart.com.

As a Walmart non-US seller, you will be able to enhance your business by catering to the marketplace’s vast customer base and high traffic volume. You can also leverage Walmart’s reliable brand name and its extensive reach, which will undoubtedly boost your product listing.

Eliminating restrictions to onboard Chinese Vendors

As Walmart removes its restrictions for selling in the US, it attempts to close the gap with other eCommerce platforms and tap into China’s vast network of manufacturers. US marketplaces are a great platform for Chinese (and most Asian) vendors to reach customers.

As Chinese vendors make up almost 75% of the seller base for some marketplaces, Walmart is likely to see similar growth.

Therefore, as a Chinese or South-East Asian vendor, you can now explore the benefits of selling through Walmart. With lesser marketplace restrictions, it will be easier to onboard and create your niche in the expansive US marketplace.

We are happy to assist.

With a consistently increasing global eCommerce growth, the Walmart marketplace is the perfect platform for expanding your multichannel approach. It is a fantastic opportunity for you to onboard Walmart and serve its enormous customer base.

    Hello,

    Can you share more details on getting set up for Walmart.com? We're a Canadian business, and it seems this hasn't been developed out yet.

    Thanks,
    Blair

    • Hi Blair,
      You're right; there isn't much information available on getting set up on Walmart.com since the program is still in its initial phase. However, we are currently in conversation with Walmart and helping specific businesses with the initial steps. Someone from our team will be contacting you soon, and they will let you know the requirements as we advance.
      Meanwhile, you can write to us at walmart-helpdesk@cedcommerce.com if you need any help.
      Thanks
