Coming soon: Ship Order Lines API update

Starting in October, Marketplace sellers will be able to choose from an expanded list of carriers. Plus, customers will be able to track status updates from these new carriers.

We’ve recently updated the Ship Order Lines API to reflect this change by adding a new schema for New Carriers.

The following carriers will be available to choose from the Carrier dropdown when marking orders as “Shipped”:

New Carriers:

  • Chukou1
  • Sendle
  • Landmark Global
  • Sunyou
  • Yanwen
  • 4PX
  • GLS
  • OSM Worldwide
  • FIRST MILE
  • AM Trucking
  • CEVA
  • India Post
  • SF Express
  • CNE
  • TForce Freight
  • AxleHire
  • LSO

Update: Retirement of PreScheduled Reports

Marketplace sellers will have additional time to complete the migration to OnRequest. The new date for the retirement of all PreScheduled Reports, with the exception of Recon Report*, will be at the end of October 2022. The Developer Portal has been updated to show that these reports are now only available OnRequest.

*Recon Report will continue to be available as a PreScheduled report, due to the nature of this report having pregenerated data.

Reminder: Full Item Setup & Maintenance legacy spec v3.2 is retiring October 1st, 2022

Starting October 1, 2022, our systems will no longer support Item Setup or Maintenance using Item Spec 3.2. Make sure you start using the latest versions in Developer Portal now so you can enjoy all the new features, manage your items more efficiently, and help ensure your business remains uninterrupted!

Reminder: International Trade Restrictions for Marketplace sellers

Walmart is firmly committed to complying with all laws and regulations in every market we operate, and we expect the same from our Marketplace sellers.

On June 24, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assests Control (OFAC) announced new sanctions strictly prohibiting the importation into the U.S. of gold, or product containing gold, having Russian Federation origin.

As events continue to develop, we ask that you monitor and ensure compliance with all Executive Orders, trade restrictions, and other sanctions regulations arising from the conflict in Ukraine.

Thank you in advance for your attention. Please reach out to your counsel with any questions or concerns.

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.
