MISSISSAUGA, ON, October 6, 2022 – For the first time in Canada, Walmart’s Marketplace sellers will be able to offer Walmart’s 2-day shipping or in-store pickup to customers, making delivery significantly faster than a typical Marketplace experience.
This is possible because Walmart Canada is now making its logistics and fulfilment solutions available to Walmart Marketplace sellers with the launch of Walmart Fulfilment Services in Canada.
Walmart Fulfillment Services (WFS) offers end-to-end fulfillment services and customer support, including returns, for Walmart Marketplace sellers at market competitive rates. With one of Canada’s largest supply chains, Walmart is uniquely positioned to provide the scale, quality, cost, and efficiency to help Marketplace sellers grow their business on Walmart.ca through WFS.
Customers will also benefit from in-store returns for most items purchased from third-party sellers through Marketplace following our standard return policy.
“Walmart Fulfilment Services is the foundation to building the most convenient, affordable and fastest fulfilment ecosystem in Canada,” says Laurent Duray, Chief eCommerce Officer, Walmart Canada. “The launch of Walmart Fulfilment Services in Canada is a vote of confidence in omnichannel as we build a best-in-class experience for our customers with our Marketplace as an important growth driver.”
“We’re bringing Walmart’s logistics, one of the best in Canada, to our third-party sellers, enhancing their opportunity on Walmart.ca while creating even more choice and better service for our customers,” shares Daniel Farmer, VP Digital Platforms & Marketplace, Walmart Canada. “By empowering our sellers with more options for warehousing and fast shipping, we’re making it easier for sellers of every size to bring their products to our customers.”
Key benefits of Walmart Fulfilment Services include:
