Walmart Marketplace Properties Overview

Updated 1 year ago

The 'Walmart Marketplace Properties' page is where Walmart product attributes can be set on a specific product so that it can be posted to Walmart Marketplace. Inventory settings, like safety qty, for Walmart Marketplace can be configured there as well.
The required attributes for posting to Walmart Marketplace are noted with a red asterisk. Hovering your mouse over the Red X will reveal an "Required Attributes Missing" message. After selecting the product's category, you will also see category specific attributes that you can fill out.
