To complete the connection, you'll need two browser windows open: one for ShipStation and one for Walmart.
After you've completed the connection steps, your store will be connected to ShipStation. You'll be taken to the store's Settings page to adjust the store-specific settings like branding, notification preferences, and product handling.
The ShipStation integration with Walmart supports the following standard features:
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 acknowledgment requirements, the Auto-Update feature is always enabled for Walmart stores and cannot be disabled.
Every individual item in a Walmart order has its 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.
