Common ShipStation Features
Sent with Shipment Update
ShipStation's integration to Walmart allows for the following additional features:
If an order is not already acknowledged, ShipStation will attempt to acknowledge the order when it is imported.
Here are some things you should keep in mind about ShipStation's integration with Walmart:
This integration is only available for Walmart sellers based in the US. Walmart Canada and Walmart DSV accounts are not supported at this time.
ShipStation will not create new orders if all the products in the order are already Shipped or Cancelled.
ShipStation is not able to send emails for Walmart orders. All customer notifications will be handled by Walmart.
Due to Walmart's order acknowledgement requirements, the Auto-Update feature is always enabled for Walmart stores and cannot be disabled.
Every individual item in a Walmart order has it's own unique Line Item ID value which must be included when notifying Walmart of the shipment. If a customer orders multiples of the same item, the item will appear multiple times in ShipStation each with a quantity of 1.
