Announcing e-ProductPlug’s latest integration with Walmart.com’s marketplace, the Number 4 e-commerce site in the United States!
Just a few years ago Walmart.com marketplace was open to less than a dozen authorized third-party online retailers like Wayfair and Tool King. Today Walmart’s initiative is to aggressively expand and grow their marketplace by over 1 million new items per month. And, in mid-2016, Walmart overhauled their back-end system and launched a new and more user-friendly access portal for retailers, Walmart Seller Center.
If you are an approved seller on Walmart’s marketplace, you can have your products listed side-by-side with Walmart products, presenting a massive opportunity for our sellers especially in time for the holiday season! Contact e-ProductPlug right away for more details if you are already approved at Sales@e-ProductPlug.com or 954-800-5282.
Keep in mind that Walmart maintains strict requirements to be a seller on their platform. In addition, Walmart e-commerce retailers are in charge of their own order fulfillment, allowing the partner to indicate fulfillment times and cut-off times for processing during the day in the Seller Center portal. The Walmart Marketplace is a similar business model of Amazon.com, eBay, and Jet.com and will collect the money directly, deduct your commission and pay the retailer bi-weekly.
What about the new Jet.com acquisition?
Walmart has recently acquired the one-year old Jet.com marketplace in a cash and stock deal valued at $3.3 billion. Walmart is the world’s largest retailer by revenue reports online sales that brought in $13.7 billion in sales last year, including sales from approximately 600 third-party approved online retailers. Internet Retailer estimates that Jet has more than 2,400 merchants selling on its site currently. Walmart says Jet will continue to operate as its own distinct brand…at least for now.
