Coming soon: 2-step verification for your Seller Center & Ad Center accounts

At Walmart Marketplace, we take the security of your information very seriously. That’s why starting late April, 2-step verification will be available for all accounts on Seller Center and Ad Center. This service safeguards against low-security passwords by adding an additional step to help minimize your risk of data or identity theft.

Please set up unique credentials for each user, so they can receive one-time passwords in separate inboxes. Doing so will help avoid any account lockouts. As a reminder, only admin accounts have the ability to add, remove or edit users.

Repricer tool now available via both API & Seller Center

Supercharge your business with the Repricer tool! Now available via both API integration and on Seller Center, the Repricer is a powerful way to automate your prices to help increase your Buy Box win rate. It also helps you stay competitive against competitors in a world where online prices are constantly changing.

Here’s how it works:

  • Enable automatic price adjustments for items in your catalog by assigning items to a pricing strategy with respective floor and ceiling prices.
  • Prices are adjusted based on “triggers” like the winning Buy Box offers and external site prices.
  • The Repricer monitors pricing across the site, so you don’t have to check and manually update your item prices every time competitor prices change.

To get started, refer to the API documentation and schemas on Developer Portal, or head over to Seller Center. For more information, check out this article.

Policies & Guidelines

Enhanced audit of the CPSC’s product certification requirements

We are enhancing our auditing program for verifying compliance of third-party products with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) product certification requirements.

Sellers of CPSC regulated products will be required to provide their Children’s Product Certificate (CPC) or General Certificate of Conformity (GCC) documentation to Bureau Veritas at Walmart’s request. The CPC/GCC documentation should include all required information, as defined by the CPSC here and here.

Please note that Bureau Veritas will contact sellers directly by email with a request for information, including product details. Failure to provide the required documents or initiating compliance to the requirements could result in product(s) being removed from the Walmart.com website and additional accountability.

Security & Privacy

Walmart protects your security and privacy. We will never ask for personal information (such as passwords or credit card numbers) in an email. If you receive such a request, please do not respond to the email.
