Walmart is actively recruiting more sellers – it onboarded 8,000 new sellers in the third quarter of 20022, and this week it kicked off a promotion to give US sellers an incentive to join its platform.
Merchants who sign up through the promotion will receive discounts on referral fees for 90 days. They’ll receive a 10% discount if they complete the new seller survey before going live, and they’ll receive another 5% discount on referral fees for using Walmart Fulfillment Services.
Walmart will also give another 5% referral-fee discount for sellers who use its ad program, and 5% for using its repricer. (No orders without associated Walmart Connect spend will be eligible for the additional 5% Walmart Connect referral fee discount – the same is true for orders without Repricer enrollment.)
Sellers will also receive a $500 search ads credit.
