What is Walmart EDI?

Walmart is one of the largest retailers in the world with approximately 10,500 stores and clubs under 46 banners in 24 countries and eCommerce websites offering more than a million products to people. In order to bring that number of products onto the shelves and makes them accessible for everyone, Walmart offers an EDI (electronic data interchange) process for all its vendors, suppliers, and distributors. Generally, such giants like Walmart make it mandatory for their suppliers to trade via EDI with them to make it easy and consistent to process and keep track of the products being supplied from all over the world and of course pay in time to all of them.

How to become EDI compliant with Walmart?

You will become EDI compliant by using a third party EDI solution (on-promise, managed EDI or cloud EDI) to start trading EDI documents with Walmart by following their compliance guidelines. Depending on your internal technical infrastructure and resources and the size of your business, you can choose basic EDI software packages or advanced kits that allow you to become EDI compliant with Walmart. If you are a small business, do not forget to checkout EDI software for small business. Your EDI service provider should help you with end-to-end EDI implementation starting from obtaining trading partner contact to testing to going live. If you are a vendor, you have to be Walmart-approved. You will have to go through a series of EDI testing first before you start sending and receiving EDI documents back and forth. This is to ensure all the connections are working correctly.
