Funny yet informative post Matthew! Developing a great website shopping experience definitely takes more time and investment, but sellers will have more control over the brand experience and customer relationship. Some perks include data collection for remarketing and personalization, upselling and buy-online-pick-up-in-store services.

Selling on Walmart isn’t always ideal either. Certain categories sell better than others on specific marketplaces. Customer satisfaction has been a problem on Walmart Marketplace, too. The average rating for the top 100 sellers on the platform is 3.9 out of 5, compared to the top 100 sellers on Amazon and eBay, which average a near-perfect 4.9 out of 5.

That article was funny as hell. What a great comparison; I heard OPEN SHOP NOW. Walmart may be the wild west but Amazon is where the millions of credit cards live and trust Prime.
Thanks, DaveP

As an e-commerce retailer I can say that selling on Walmart is a disaster! We are very successful on Amazon and Ebay. We were originally invited to sell on Walmart’s Marketplace before they opened it to everyone. The user interface is terrible and you cannot create listings unless you upload them from a spreadsheet. Clunky and not user friendly. Once you list you items their “sales inhibitors” go to work. Their special algorithm compares your products to products that are not remotely the same. Selling a manufacturers product that has many models at different pricing levels or different colors? Forget it. The algorithm will decide that your product is available cheaper on a different site and un-publish your listing. Unless you sell the lowest priced garbage that the manufacturer sells, then don’t put it on Walmart.com. No worries, right, just create a case and seller support will fix it… right? Not a chance. They are there 100% to keep you from selling on “their marketplace.” They will justify what the algorithm did without ever doing any research. We sell a “Kit” on Walmart.com that has multiple items. Since the product is also alone as a standalone product (not in a… Read more »

“:Walmart forces you to include shipping and then unpublishes you if your price on another site adds in shipping separately – even when the combined price is higher.” That is my concern. We are also selling at other sites with shipping cost separately. If they unpublished listing just based on the price, it will be disaster.

What about items that are not currently in their “catalog” can you create new item listings?

I am selling on Walmart and I am getting sales but dealing with the listings is not very easy. They constantly take them off for odd reasons then put them back on whenever they feel like it. You can not call into customer service it is all done by email so I email them everyday about something. Very frustrated.

Hello Matthew,,

Really enjoyed the article and a lot of good points made also in the comments section pros and cons.. One of the best things I like about selling on Walmart is NO Chinese at this time.. There may be some domestic Chinese wholesalers but I have not seen no overseas merchants and what I have understood Walmart is only taking domestic sellers “at this time”. The Chinese can really put the slam Bam to some of your products even though it takes three weeks to three months to get it.
Good luck to all you guys may your adventures be profitable 🙂

We do alot of custom made to order items and have been looking into other markets as well but so far ebay we sell the most then our website, then etsy. was looking into walmart.com but does not look like a fit for us. Amazon fee’s are so high for what we make we just stay away from there selling platform which is sad since there the biggest. Anyone have any other sites they would recommend selling on?

But Really enjoyed the article but love reading all the comments as well

Selling on Walmart is the worse experience a seller can have. It takes time to publish listing and if you do they can be unpublished anytime. There is no phone for customer servide and they never help you just close your ticket with some lame excuse. Walmart can issue a Refund on your behalf for no valid reason even after 2 months. They suck we sell there because we need to but as soon as we can we will leave.
