Walmart Marketplace Properties Overview

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 such as safety qty for Walmart Marketplace can also be configured there.

The required attributes for posting to Walmart Marketplace are noted with a red asterisk. Hovering your mouse over the Red X will reveal a “Required Attributes Missing” message. After selecting the product’s category, you will also see category-specific attributes that you can complete.
