Get a Refresher on Refund APIs

One of the top 4XX errors identified in API calls occurs when refunds are applied. Below we explain how to properly initiate refunds for customer returns. If a Return Order exists:

  • DO: Use the Issue Refund API
  • DON’T: Use the Refund Order Line API. You should only use the Refund Order Line API for partial adjustments.

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.
