Important Information

  • It’s important to remember that simply enrolling your products in Walmart Fulfillment Services (WFS) does not guarantee you a discount. To receive the discount, you must also have your products fulfilled by WFS. If you have set up a product in WFS but continue to fulfill it through your own logistics network, you will not receive the additional 5% discount. The same applies to enrolling in Walmart Sponsored Search. Unless you spend at least $1 on promoting your products, you will not be eligible for the additional 5% referral fee discount.
  • Creating a Walmart Marketplace account is quick and easy, taking only about a minute. Afterward, simply complete a three-step setup process to start your onboarding journey. The following information is needed to be approved to sell on the Walmart marketplace:
    • Business Tax ID(s) (SSN not accepted) or Business License Number
    • Supporting documents that verify your Business Name and Address
    • History of marketplace or eCommerce success
    • Products that have GTIN/UPC GS1 Company Prefix Numbers
    • The catalog that complies with Walmart’s Prohibited Products Policy
    • Fulfillment through Walmart Fulfillment Services (WFS) or another B2C US warehouse with returns capability
  • The referral fee rate discounts for the Marketplace are applied on a weekly basis every Friday. This means that your 90-day period of up to 25% off referral fee rates will commence within the week of your official launch date on the site.

In conclusion, the New-Seller Savings promotion is a unique opportunity for new sellers to maximize their success on By taking advantage of the discounts and ad credit, you’ll be able to grow your business and reach more customers on the Walmart Marketplace. So, don’t delay – go live today and start saving!
