Today we had the pleasure of doing a webinar and Q&A with the Walmart team on Fulfillment success during COVID-19 and beyond.
Before we get into the big news of Walmart ThreeDay, here are a few updates on Walmart.
Temporarily Relaxed ODR Policies
Walmart has relaxed ODR score calculations to take into consideration any COVID-19-related challenges you may have with listing, canceling, and shipping inventory. They have also paused suspensions for exceeding maximum ODR thresholds.
They recommend adding one day of lag time to standard and value shipping methods if you feel you need the extra time during this season.
Return Dispute Window Temporarily Extended
Walmart has extended the dispute window from 45 days to 90 days. The revised window is applicable to Marketplace orders placed on or after March 1, 2020.
Meet fast delivery promises with Walmart ThreeDay
A large percentage of all Marketplace orders with Value or Standard shipping methods already get delivered in 3-4 days. Expedited delivery drives organic lift in conversion and, consequently, more sales.
Walmart ThreeDay is not a program, but an update to Walmart.com’s expedited shipping method. It doesn’t have program elements like a fast shipping badge (such as in Walmart TwoDay), enrollment, or qualifications. Essentially, any Walmart.com seller can offer free expedited shipping and get additional benefits from the faster delivery promise.
Tip: All Deliverr merchants are eligible for Walmart TwoDay.
When you offer free 3-day shipping nationwide, your products automatically get ThreeDay benefits
Conversion Boost: Drive an increased conversion and, consequently, more sales with fast delivery promise.
Increased Flexibility: Enable 3-day shipping for any portion of your catalog, no qualification or enrollment required.
Buy Box Prominence: Win the Buy Box more often and sell more, when you offer expedited shipping.
How is ThreeDay different from TwoDay?
3 Day Expedited Shipping- Seller Center Setup
Step 1: Seller Center >Shipping Settings>Three Day
Step 2: Configuration settings within Seller Center by Region
Diversify your fulfillment network with Deliverr
When you fulfill with Deliverr, you get TwoDay access (personally, we think that’s even better). Use Deliverr to ensure products get shipped from multiple geographic regions to sustain reliable operations.
