With no set-up or ongoing membership fees, a wide customer base and less competition than many other online platforms, Walmart Marketplace has emerged as a major opportunity for ecommerce sellers.

It is important as a seller on Walmart Marketplace that you categorize your items correctly. This not only determines customer experience and visibility, but it directly affects the fees that you will need to pay the platform. For more information on this and how it works, check out their instructional video.
