Suppliers invited to Walmart Open Call will need to generate shipping labels in order to ship product samples for Walmart Open Call. These samples must be received by September 17th 2020 in order to be considered.
Please be sure to only send one sample of each item. Sending multiple samples can cause confusion and may lead to the merchant not receiving your product. Suppliers must also print two shipping labels for each sample in color and include one in packaging for further storage and sorting. Please see example label below:
In order to begin generating your shipping label select the blue “Generate Sample Labels” button.
You do not have to send samples but you must indicate that you are not sending samples by selecting “I do not plan on sending samples” or have your samples shipped and delivered by September 17th 2020.
Note: Suppliers are strongly encouraged to send one sample of the item selected for the buyer meeting. Walmart Associates prefer to review live samples when possible.
Suppliers will also be able to indicate whether or not they would like to have their samples shipped back to them. Please note that Walmart will not return food or consumables and that a return label must be included with the shipped sample.
For each shipping label you must:
- Select product, separate labels should be generated for each product
- Select point of contact
- Point of contact drop down will include those registered to attend, individual selected will be the point of contact on printed shipping label and will be the recipient of the confirmation email from Walmart’s layout facility when the package is received
- Select storage option to indicate if a product is shelf stable, fresh or frozen so facility can manage storage appropriately
- Will default to shelf stable if nothing is selected
Once your sample has been shipped please ensure to add tracking information as receipt of your shipment by clicking the blue “Add Tracking Information” button.
Note: As each sample must be sent separately, individual sample tracking must also be entered.
