Walmart’s new omnichannel platform has launched, combining Walmart.com and Walmart Online Pickup & Delivery into a single site! As of now, all shoppers are seeing the newly combined website when they go to Walmart.com.
What does this mean for Walmart suppliers? There are lots of big changes to the way shoppers use the site, which will have an effect on the way Walmart.com’s search engine populates search results.
It’s important that sellers and suppliers check their item pages’ search rank across all relevant keywords to identify places where your ranking has taken a hit. This mix-up of search results on Walmart.com can cause your items to lose visibility, but it’s also a big opportunity to nail the transition and improve your share of voice.
Important Note on Rich Media/Enhanced Content
Rich Media, also called Enhanced Content and A+ Content, is temporarily unavailable on the new Walmart.com. Walmart is working hard to get this feature back in, so it will come back! SKU Ninja subscribers will NOT be charged for rich media hosting while it is not live on Walmart.com.
Please note that you can still upload and create rich media modules using SKU Ninja, but no enhanced content will be published to Walmart.com until that functionality is added back to the new site. We encourage you to prepare by getting enhanced content ready to go so it can be published as soon as the capability is readded!
