Our Local Product Suppliers are subject to the same requirements as our National Product Suppliers, but the application process is a little different. Here’s how to get started as a Local Product Supplier.
Contact your local store manager
Meet with your local store manager to discuss your product. He or she will take a look at what you're offering and decide if it might be a good fit for stores in your area. If your local manager likes your product, the manager will submit information about your item to their supervisors.
The Market Manager (MM) and Regional Market Manager (RMM) will also have to approve the product. If approved, you'll be given a Regional Market Manager's name and the store numbers of the stores where they are interested in placing your product. Please make sure to retain this information for reference later. Find a Walmart store or Sam's Club.

Complete the Online Product Submission form. When the form is submitted, make a note of the Application ID number that appears, which you will need to provide to the store manager, if asked.
- Regional Market Manager's name - include in the buyer's name field (example: Buyer's Name: RMM - John Smith)
- Store numbers provided by the Store Manager - include in the product description (example: Local Purchase - Stores 121, 156 and 3194, Product - Salsa)
- Picture of your product (size 512 KB or less)
- Wait for Walmart's final decision
Buyers make the final decision about who becomes a Walmart supplier. If a buyer is interested and wants to learn more about your product, you’ll receive an automated notice to complete a Supplier Questionnaire. Please allow 2-3 weeks for the buyer to review your information.
