You can now Check your Walmart Seller Application Status

Here is some good news for all future Walmart sellers who just applied. You can now quickly check your Walmart seller application status with basic data from your form and just a few clicks. Until recently, this option was available only through the Walmart Support case and often took weeks to receive a response. This is a really helpful feature that can save you some time and nerves as Walmart application review can take from 2 to 4 weeks, and Walmart Support does not always notify you about the rejection.

To check your Walmart seller application status, click on this link, provide your email address, tax classification, and tax classification number, then click Get Application Status. You should receive a general description of the current stage of your Walmart application review.

In case you see some error or your application was rejected and you want to know why you will still need to submit a case through this link (category path: Password or other access issues). If you are still unable to get any information about the status and your application has been in review for more than a month, it might suggest that your application was rejected. In such a case, contact our support team, and we will try to help you understand the reason for rejection.

If you are looking for some help with the Walmart seller application, you can find detailed instructions in this post. Currently, there is no way of direct application for international sellers who do not conduct business in the United States.

    what is the tax classification number?

    1. GeekSeller August 29, 2021 5:01 pm

      Hi Jie, use the EIN number you provided during the registration.

    thank you for your answer.
    the reply always is “Application Status Email Not Found” from the application status with my correct email address and EIN.
    Is this meaning they reject my application?

      Jie, Not necessarily. If you can send us an email at, providing us with your Company Name and email address that you used during the registration, we can try to contact the Walmart team directly to check on the status of your application.

      Hi Junaid, We cannot promise to get this info, but we will contact the Walmart team to check on your application and follow up via email.

    Hello Jie Sun, GeekSeller,
    When checking the status of your application, “Application Status Email Not Found” appears because you put the dash in your EIN.
    That happened to me as well. But when I removed the dash, it told me the application was in review.

    Simply remove the dash when entering your EIN.

      Thank you for the tip!

    Wen applied 6/10 and received 3 emails saying we were approved but the email was misaligned and some of the language was less than professional here and there. entered a password and got to a registration page. Very skeptical because it did not look optimized. Checked the app status online and it continues to say it is under review.
    Do you have the website address that would be showing at the correct registration page or have you heard of phishing scheme or did we ignore a approved application?

    Thank you

      Hello Robert, This is the link where you can check your application status. It is not always reliable, but it is a good start:

      Here is an official link to the application form:

      Please feel free to take screenshots of emails you received and send it to us at, maybe we will be able to tell you more about authenticity of those emails and what you can do next.
