Walmart Dropship Orders Overview

Overview

Dropshipping is when a seller transfers a customer order and shipment details to a manufacturer rather than stocking its own goods. This removes the need for picking, packing, shipping, and maintaining inventory. This article covers Walmart dropship orders. For more information on dropshipping, refer to this article on Dropshipping.


Import Walmart Orders

Walmart orders will import automatically to Sellercloud under the Walmart channel.

  • The email address will import as walmart-OrderSourceOrderID@sellercloud.com
  • The order will import as charged with Walmart Initial Cost as the unit price. This is the amount charged to Walmart, not the Walmart retail price.
