As a potential supplier, one of the most important things you can do is get to know how Walmart works. Whether you’re brand new to our stores or you’ve known us for years, here are a few ways to understand how we help our customers and members save money and live better – while consistently maintaining our commitment to quality.
- Visit a Walmart or Sam’s Club in your area.
Get a sense of who we are, in our stores and clubs. Visiting a store or club also gives you a better understanding of what they’re like. If you’re especially interested in becoming a local supplier, information about your local stores can be invaluable. Find a Walmart store or Sam's Club.
- Compare your product or service to existing ones.
Look at the types of products and services we sell and use. Does what you have to offer seem like a good fit? Would your product be appropriate on Walmart’s shelves? Is your product or service the most innovative, best quality and at the lowest price?
- Make sure you understand our shoppers’ needs.
When we choose new items to stock, we select products customers want. How would your product or service improve our customers’ lives? Also, Walmart serves customers and members nearly 260 million times per week around the world. Know how large your capacity is for supplying.
