Connecting or Reconnecting to Walmart

This article will show you how to connect or reconnect Solid Commerce to your Walmart selling account.

IMPORTANT!

In order to sell on the Walmart marketplace, you need to go through a multi-step approval process. We can help accelerate your application. Please notify us if you would like to apply.

After you've completed the application process, Walmart will post a final check list in your Walmart Seller Center account. As part of your Solid Commerce onboarding, we will help you complete all of the steps necessary to advance out of Walmart's test environment.

 

What we'll cover:

  1. Connecting to Walmart
  2. Importing Orders and Live Listings
  3. Reconnecting to Walmart

Importing Orders and Live Listings

After clicking the CONNECT button, settings for importing your orders and existing listings will appear.

 

Importing Orders

To get your orders flowing into Solid Commerce, we recommend keeping the "Import orders from Walmart" toggle turned on.

By default, we populate the current date and time for the order import. That works well for most clients.

If you would like to import older orders to fulfill them, you can set the order import to an earlier date and time.

 

Importing Live Listings

IMPORTANT!

Walmart doesn't make all required listing data available to import.

One of the fields that doesn't import is the Fulfillment Lag Time. However, Walmart requires that we send the Fulfillment Lag Time when we submit inventory updates.

That means that you will need to upload your Fulfillment Lag Time into Solid Commerce after your listings import.

You will also need to enter any other required walmart attr: fields before you use the Update Listings button or relist out of stock items.

To learn how to upload all of these fields, please see Listing to Walmart (Creating New Listings and Adding Yourself to Existing Listings).

 

If you're ready to import:

1) Toggle the Import Items from Walmart switch on.

2) Select the import settings for your:

  • Inventory List
  • Market List
  • Pricing Rule

3) Select Start NOT Automated from the Default automation status drop-down menu.

  • Setting the Default automation status to Start NOT Automated gives you time to upload your Fulfillment Lag Time and any Walmart attribute data that you want to add.
  • Once you have uploaded the Fulfillment Lag Time and any other Walmart details into Solid Commerce, you are ready to turn the automation on. To do so go to your Walmart Market List, select all of your listings, and click the Start Automation button.

4) Click the SAVE button.
