Walmart expands engagement with Indian exporters, invite sellers to join marketplace

In line with Walmart’s ambitious goal of exporting USD 10 billion from India each year by 2027, the retail giant invites select Indian sellers to join Walmart Marketplace, a curated seller’s community that serves more than 120 million US shoppers each month.

“This initiative expands on over 20 years of Walmart’s engagement with Indian exporters,” said a statement from Walmart.

The retail giant is seeking new sellers from India as part of a global drive to attract international sellers and expand the Marketplace’s product assortment.

Indian Sellers, selected after the process, will be able to take advantage of Walmart Fulfillment Services, which would give them to use Walmart’s warehousing and delivery infrastructure in the US, along with platform tools that help them streamline their operations and manage promotions and feedback, the statement added.

“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 US.”
