    can you tell me LLC and residental address is that work on Walmart ( i have LLC registered )

    1. GeekSeller July 17, 2022 1:21 pm

      Hello Ngic, Yes. When you register your LLC you can choose a residential address as your business address. This is very common, as many businesses operate from home offices, and just Walmart wants to ensure your company is in the US. More crucial is your fulfillment capacities. Usually, companies rent a warehouse or hire a 3PL company, but in theory, you could ship from your presidential address as well. As long as you can guarantee the speed and quality of shipments.

    Thank you for this info.
    Question: Do they look at the age of your LLC as a requirement for approval?

    1. GeekSeller May 31, 2023 4:25 pm

      Yes, Walmart may consider the age of your LLC when deciding whether to approve you as a supplier. A longer operational history often signals stability and consumer demand. Plus, it provides tax documentation demonstrating your Gross Merchandise Value after a year. However, a younger company with strong online reviews and robust sales can also be approved, as Walmart values overall business health and potential, not just longevity.
