How it works:
The Review Accelerator program encourages customers to add authentic reviews to your items, helping your business build trust with online shoppers and stand out.
Existing customers are asked to share feedback after purchasing an item on Walmart.com in exchange for a small incentive* that’s only disclosed once they’ve made a purchase. A big impact at a low cost, Marketplace sellers pay $10 per review and are only charged for a max of 5 incentivized reviews per participating item.
The program is a great way to generate more reviews and help drive more sales!
*All reviews collected from the program will be badged incentivized. Walmart will not entertain any request to modify or remove any item reviews unless it is in violation of the Walmart UGC/ Ratings and Review Policies. Pricing and eligibility requirements can change at any time.

Items are only eligible to participate in the Reviews Accelerator Program if they have sales in the last 30 days and have less than five reviews.
NOTE: If you are not seeing a particular item on your eligible item list, it could be because the same item is already enrolled by another Marketplace seller. Only one seller can enroll an item at a given time.

Industry research says that the first 5 reviews are the most critical. The intent of the program is to introduce an initial 5 reviews to accelerate an item’s success on the Marketplace. We cap this number at 5 so as to not flood the item page with incentivized reviews. We are always evaluating data and will inform you of any changes to this policy as the program evolves.
