Walmart requirements

Channel Manager requires the following resources and information to configure a Commerce sales channel for Walmart Marketplace.

Walmart Marketplace Store status

When you connect products to the marketplace, listing availability depends on the status of your Walmart Marketplace stores:

  • For live stores, your product offers are listed and available for sale when the match operation completes.

  • For stores that are not live, your product offers are staged and not visible to customers. When the Walmart Marketplace store goes live, staged listings are pushed to the live store automatically.

IMPORTANT

After Channel Manager is installed and configured, all inventory, price, and order updates are synchronized automatically. Do not connect Channel Manager to a live Walmart Marketplace store until you have disabled any other integrations that update the product and order data. If you had other integrations configured, verify that the item quantity and prices in Commerce match the quantities in Walmart Marketplace before connecting to a live store.
