News & Announcements
Upcoming Changes to Cancel Order Lines API
On May 12, we are updating the list of accepted order cancellation reasons to provide more clarity for sellers who integrate with Walmart via API or Solution Providers. Please update your Cancel Order Lines reasons today to reflect the new Cancel Order Lines Schema.
After May 12, any cancellation codes that are marked as ‘REMOVED’ in the chart below, will no longer be accepted and will result in an error if used.
|CUSTOMER_REQUESTED_SELLER_TO_CANCEL||NO CHANGE – REMAINS SAME|
|SELLER_CANCEL_OUT_OF_STOCK||NO CHANGE – REMAINS SAME|
|SELLER_CANCEL_FRAUD_STOP_SHIPMENT||NO CHANGE – REMAINS SAME|
|SELLER_CANCEL_PRICING_ERROR||NO CHANGE – REMAINS SAME|
Added Visibility for Smart Tag Items
Next month, we are adding two new fields, shippingConfigSource and shippingSLA, in the GET Orders API to give sellers utilizing Smart Tags more visibility into fulfillment sources and transit times. These new fields will enable sellers to identify which fulfillment channel and shipping method was used for each SKU.
Item Performance Report Improvements
We are excited to announce a major improvement to the Item Performance Report. Previously, if sellers offered more than 100,000 items, they were unable to view performance data for their entire catalog. Later this month, we will remove the report’s data limitations to give sellers a more accurate view of their entire catalog.
Walmart Fulfillment Services (WFS) Sales Restrictions
As previously communicated, new shipping attributes have been included in the latest Item Spec 4.1 for sellers who set up or convert Walmart Fulfillment Services (WFS) items via API. To support this initiative, we have also updated our Item Reports to include a “Sales Restrictions” column which identifies items with shipping limitations.
Improved Error Message: Acknowledging Shipped or Cancelled Orders
Sellers will receive a new error message when attempting to acknowledge orders already in a ‘Shipped’ or ‘Cancelled’ status.
- Old: Cannot acknowledge PO as PO is not CREATED state
- New: Acknowledgment is not required for this purchase order. Purchase order lines are already in shipped or cancelled state
New Mandatory Fields for Ship Order Lines API
In the coming months, dayPhone and emailId fields will become mandatory in the returnCenterAddress section of the Ship Order Lines API. As a reminder, sellers are required to configure at least one return center for all orders. Get a head start and update your Return Center Address in the Ship Order Lines API today.
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.
