Walmart has offered free two-day delivery service without membership required a couple of years ago. Now, Walmart announced that its free two-day shipping promotion would be expanded to include more deals just in time for the upcoming Black Friday 2018 sales.
In a news release posted today, Walmart addressed a couple of “significant changes” to its online store shopping experience ahead of Black Friday 2018 sales, which is free two-day shipping and returns policy.
Walmart said that it’s working with third-party marketplace vendors to make millions of products on their inventories eligible for free two-day shipping. Walmart’s minimum order required is still set at $35 for Black Friday 2018 sales. Both Walmart and Walmart are closely competing against the e-commerce titan Amazon with their expanded free two-day courier service offers. These no membership prerequisite free two-day shipping offering clearly undercuts Amazon’s paid Prime subscription which offer free two-day shipping on all orders.
The other shift Walmart just revealed is about returns policy, as the Big W wants to make the return operations even more easier for customers and third-party merchants.
Walmart shoppers will be able to create a return label on their walmart.com accounts, and return the item back to the merchant. Walmart will also allow customers bring the item/s they wish to return to Walmart physical stores. It should be worth noting that Walmart will deal with the shipment to the vendor, and the seller will refund the money back to the buyer.
