Walmart Fulfillment Services (WFS)

Last year Walmart introduced its own FBA like fulfillment service called WFS. GeekSeller offers tools that help sellers utilize this new service. The program is now more mature and we introduced multiple tools to helps sellers use it.


Fees

  • $0.75 per cubic foot of storage space per month.
  • LTS fees go up to $7.50 per cubic foot per month after 365 days. There are also additional storage fees from Oct-Dec for inventory aged over 30 days (additional $1.50) – there is no “generic” fee increase during peak.
  • WFS fulfillment charges are based on the item weight alone. Pricing starts at $3.40 for items under a pound and goes up from there, depending on your item’s weight. 
  • Visit this article (you must be logged in to access it) in Walmart’s help center for details about fees.

Product limitations

  • Products must be under 30 lbs (this limit may be increased in the near future).
  • Product dimensions must be no larger than 25″x20″x14″.
  • Products must ship to Walmart fulfillment centers from within the United States.
  • No perishable or regulated products.

Returns

  • Walmart handles all shipping, refunds, and returns for you.
  • Customers can return a product to their local Walmart store or ship to one of Walmart’s fulfillment centers.
  • A seller can then decide whether to resell or remove the items from the inventory (removing a product from the inventory costs a small fee).
  • WFS covers return costs for any reasons related to fulfillment or shipping and delivery, such as item damaged or late delivery.
  • Returns or problems related to delayed shipping or damaged items will be on Walmart.
