Walmart has become a powerhouse of online retail, growing and changing its strategy to complement its own massive brick-and-mortar business and compete with online-first retailers like Amazon. When Walmart Marketplace launched in 2009, it let shoppers see and choose items displayed and shipped by reliable third-party sellers through Walmart.com. It also gave brands without a presence in Walmart stores the opportunity to sell their items to the retailer’s millions of online shoppers.
With the retailer’s huge successes with online in 2020, Walmart Marketplace is as full of opportunity as ever. But sellers with backgrounds in Amazon or other online retailers might have a hard time adapting to the world of Walmart. Winning at Walmart requires a strategy that takes into account the way the retailer handles content and search results.

Here’s a quick overview of how SKU Ninja can help you win on Walmart Marketplace:
The content on your product page is essential for two major reasons: it’s used by search engines to help determine your organic rank, and it’s what shoppers use to learn more about your item and decide whether or not to click add to cart. Keeping your pages up to date with the information both shoppers and search algorithms need is a big part of any successful ecommerce strategy.
SKU Ninja’s Content Management software lets you edit the title, description, images, specifications, and attributes of your Walmart items. You can use SKU Ninja Content Management to keep your item pages up to date with the newest information, change your content for seasonal windows and promotions, and add or improve content to make your page easier to find through Walmart’s search engine.
You can also use SKU Ninja to add rich media like videos, interactive product tours, enhanced content/A+content, and more to your Walmart.com item pages! Click here to read more about the benefits of rich media and learn about our Rich Media Hosting!
