What is Walmart?
Walmart is the largest US multinational grocery retailer that operates a chain of hypermarkets, discount department stores, and grocery stores. Both its physical and online stores are presented all around the world and gain a significant number of customers every day. Therefore, this selling channel brings huge opportunity for online stores, especially who are new ones in the market.
Since the product data fields in Walmart and Magento 2 are fully compatible, store’ s admin can apply these fields to their product data, generating Product Feed. Since Magento 2 now does not support to create data feed, we need to use the added Product Feed extension by Mageplaza.
