Walmart have announced that they are inviting Indian sellers to the Walmart Marketplace. The platform currently serves 120 million U.S. shoppers each month and this initiative expands on over 20 years of Walmart’s engagement with Indian exporters. India is already one of Walmart’s top sourcing markets, and the company has set an ambitious goal of exporting $10 billion from India each year by 2027.
Walmart is seeking new sellers from India as part of a global drive to attract international sellers and expand the Marketplace’s product assortment. Selected sellers will be able to take advantage of Walmart Fulfillment Services, which allows them to use Walmart’s warehousing and delivery infrastructure in the U.S., along with platform tools that help them streamline their operations and manage promotions and feedback. Walmart also appropriately shares U.S. customer insights and global supply chain best practices and business planning strategies with its Marketplace sellers to help them succeed in the U.S.
Building on our long history of partnership with Indian exporters, Walmart is now offering Indian businesses the opportunity to further their export dreams as Marketplace sellers. They will be able to leverage our global supply chain infrastructure and receive support to help them reach millions of daily customers in the U.S.Michelle Mi, Vice President, Emerging Markets and Business Development – Global Sourcing, Walmart
A dedicated Cross Border Trade team has been set up in India to help sellers onboard and grow on the platform. It supports local sellers to meet applicable international regulations and Walmart Responsible Sourcing standards, develop new product lines and enhance their capabilities in packaging, marketing, supply chain management and more to upgrade their operations for export success.
Pioneering Indian firms such as Delphi Leather India, Mahi Exports, Touchstone Gems & Jewelry and Welspun are among those already growing on Walmart Marketplace.
