Walmart opens the door to UK sellers
If you’re in sales, you’ll know that to sell can simply be a numbers game of knocking on doors. Knock on enough of them and eventually one will open.
Well, for some sellers in the UK, one of the biggest doors in the eCommerce world has just opened.
Thanks in part to their long running engagement with UK exporters, along with the British government’s ‘Made in the UK, Sold to the World’ growth plan, Walmart, one of the world’s largest brick-and-mortar retailers and also one of the world’s fastest growing ecommerce organizations, is now inviting select UK sellers to apply to join Walmart Marketplace, its fast-growing online marketplace. Here, they’ll find a large and established community of third-party sellers that sell to over 120 million US shoppers each month.
So, if you’re a seller in the UK, this is an opportunity you’re definitely going to want to look into. Especially when you’ll have the backing and support of Walmart to help you sell more and expand your business into the US.
Indeed, as part of the Walmart Marketplace program, select UK sellers will be able to take advantage of Walmart Fulfillment Services, allowing them to use Walmart’s warehousing and delivery infrastructure to offer two-day delivery to customers across most of the US. They will also have access to tools that help them streamline their operations and manage promotions and feedback. A dedicated Cross Border Trade team has also been set up to help UK sellers onboard and grow on the platform. It will also share US customer insights and business planning strategies with UK sellers, as appropriate, to help them refine their offer for US customers and grow their export business.
The UK has an enormous amount to offer US consumers. Known for its excellence in design and manufacturing along with modern supply chain management, demand from US consumers is high. That’s why ambitious UK sellers, including small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), should take advantage of Walmart Marketplace to make their entrance into the US market.
The UK seller’s London Summit
To introduce select local sellers to the Walmart Marketplace opportunity, Walmart, in partnership with Payoneer and Linnworks, is hosting the UK Sellers Summit in London on June 17, 2022. Those attending will include dozens of manufacturers and exporters from an array of industries, ranging from fashion and home and kitchen to sporting goods, beauty and entertainment.
UK sellers on Walmart Marketplace will have the option to tap into an ecosystem of solutions providers, like Payoneer and Linnworks, to complement the tools and services they can access via Walmart.
Of course, as a long-time partner with Walmart, Payoneer and Linnworks offer UK sellers integrated payment options and centralized inventory and order management workflows to help sellers to simplify and streamline their cross-border operations and scale as demand grows.
So, what are you waiting for? If you’re looking to expand to the US market the Walmart Marketplace could be exactly what you’re looking for. All you need to do is open the door and see….
