For online shoppers, two-day shipping is quickly becoming the norm. If you want to gain market share in the eCommerce world, you’ll have to step up to the plate and offer this shipping service. As you recall, free two-day shipping was once a unique selling proposition under Amazon Prime. However, as more and more online businesses embrace this idea, it is now becoming a necessity.
Walmart is now poised to take on Amazon. Although Walmart has offered 2-day shipping in the past, it was with a limited amount of products. Since then, Walmart’s partnership with Deliverr has allowed the retail giant to up their game.
What Has Changed?
Previously, only items sold directly by Walmart were eligible for the free two-day shipping program, denoted on Walmart.com with a green two-day shipping badge. Now access is open to any merchant who desires to opt into the program. However not all merchants have the capability to handle the demands of two-day shipping. Deliverr, a company in partnership with Walmart, is the solution to that problem.
Deliverr uses a network of leased space in warehouses around the county, which enables Walmart’s third-party sellers to participate in Walmart’s two-day shipping program. As a result, shoppers can now choose from millions of select items online and no membership is needed! Plus it’s free on orders of $35 or more.
