Walmart Marketplace Listings Management

Overview

You can publish new listings on Walmart Marketplace directly from Sellercloud. Note that a product must be ready for Walmart Marketplace in order to post, and it should be Walmart Marketplace Enabled in order to send the correct inventory quantity.


Post a Walmart Marketplace Listing

You can post products on Walmart Marketplace individually or in bulk.

Individually

  1. Go to Catalog > Manage Catalog > Open a product.
  2. From the Toolbox, go to Channels Walmart Marketplace.
  3. From the Actions menu, select Post to Walmart.
Walmart limits the Product Add and Update Inventory for single items to 10 items per hour.
Also, the image URL cannot have https, only http, or will fail to post. You can adjust this on the Image Hosting Settings page. Note that the image file size cannot exceed 1MB.

In Bulk

  1. Go to the Catalog > Manage Catalog > Select products.
  2. Click on the Action menu, and select Launch on Channel.
  3. In the Channel field, select Walmart Marketplace, and press Launch.
  4. A job will be added to the queue to post the selected products to Walmart Marketplace.

 Post Variations on Walmart Marketplace

Follow these steps to list a variation on Walmart Marketplace.

  1. Set up a variation (n-matrix).
  2. Ready and enable the parent and all variations for Walmart Marketplace. This is needed because, unlike eBay, the variation children get posted individually and are only linked by the variation tag.
    Note: Likewise, the variation image is posted from the product itself, not from the variation image configuration. Whatever primary image you have for the variation SKU, will be sent to Walmart.
  3. Go to Catalog > Manage Catalog > Open the variation parent.
  4. From the Toolbox, go to Channels > Walmart Properties.
  5. Press Edit and in the Listing Details panel, click on the attributes link.
  6. In the pop-up window, select a Category and Sub Category, and press Next.
  7. A new window will open. Select the dimensions you want to use for the listing variation configuration. Do not enter any value in the selected dimensions.
  8. Press Next.
  9. A new pop-up window will display a Walmart variation configuration that lists all your products in the variation. Enter values in the dimension columns to associate a product with the variation.
  10. Press Finish.
  11. From the Actions menu of the variation parent, select Post to Walmart for the changes to take place.
For variations already posted on a channel, you can add and remove variants to the existing variation in Sellercloud, but most channels will not allow you to update a variation that is already posted. In order to update it, you need to end the listing and post the newly updated variation.

Update Listings on Walmart Marketplace

You can update Walmart Marketplace listings manually per product or by automating the process.

Manually

  1. Go to Catalog > Manage Catalog > Open a product.
  2. From the Toolbox, go to Channels Walmart Marketplace.
  3. From the Actions menu, select Update Price on Walmart.

Sellercloud will send periodic updates to update inventory and price on Walmart Marketplace. This automation is controlled by the Walmart Settings Enable Inventory Upload and Enable Price Upload. To enable these settings:

  2. From the Toolbox, select Channels > Walmart Marketplace > General Settings.
  3. Press Edit.
