Are You Taking Advantage of Walmart Marketplace? Why Integrating with SAP Business One is Essential

Walmart – the world’s largest retailer – reported a 63% increase in U.S. ecommerce sales for Q1 of fiscal year 2018. The retailer is also battling Amazon for a greater share of ecommerce sales, as shown by its partnership with Google to enable voice shopping through Google Assistant. Shoppers will be able to use Walmart’s “Easy Reorder” feature with Google Express (Google’s shopping service). This will enable shoppers to buy many Walmart products through voice recognition technology alone. No clicking required.

As Walmart’s ecommerce sales continue to increase and its commitment to new technologies opens new doors for revenue opportunities, it is becoming an increasingly important ecommerce platform for retailers.

Once you have decided to sell on Walmart Marketplace, you need to make it simple to manage orders and inventory. This is where integrating SAP Business One with Walmart becomes important. Fortunately, Alluvia offers a revolutionary Walmart and SAP Business One connector that is both simple and affordable.

The Walmart Marketplace

Retailers who sell on Walmart do so through Walmart Marketplace. Sellers must first be approved. Walmart looks for the following qualities in Marketplace sellers:

  • Excellent customer service
  • Competitive pricing
  • Fast order fulfillment
  • Reliability
  • Variety in product selection

Once approved, sellers can create a product catalog, set prices, and control their inventory. You ship items directly to the customer. Sellers receive payment from for the items they sell.

Walmart does not charge sellers any monthly or setup fees. The company collects a referral fee on each sale as it occurs. The referral fee varies based on the type of item you are selling. Details are available here.

Why you need to integrate Walmart and SAP Business One

The benefits of integrating Walmart with SAP Business One include:

  • No more manual data entry – Integration means you no longer have to manually enter data into SAP Business One, removing data entry errors and saving time.  
  • Receive real-time inventory updates – Ensure you don’t sell items that are out of stock and stay on top of low inventory items.
  • Automate the fulfillment process – Integrating SAP Business One and Walmart creates efficiencies in the order fulfillment process by removing all the manual steps. Orders are fulfilled faster.
  • Create a better customer experience – When orders are fulfilled faster and with fewer errors, customers are happy. They keep coming back to you for more products, and they are more likely to refer your business to a friend.
  • Reduced costs – The time and resources saved from integration mean you spend less money and resources on data entry, order fulfillment, and inventory tracking.

Integration is a necessary step in a successful Walmart Marketplace operation.
