If you are a fan of Walmart, cool. If not, maybe they can sway you with this news. This is the time of the year when retailers offer special perks and promos to earn your business. Walmart is hoping you’ll choose them over Amazon by offering free two-day shipping for millions more items sold by third-party Marketplace sellers. This is in addition to the ones it’s selling directly.
The retailer has teamed up with hundreds of top-selling third-party merchants in order to expand its free shipping offer for purchases worth $35 and over. There is no need to pay a membership fee to take advantage of this either. Amazon Prime now costs $119 a year in the US, so maybe you want to give Walmart a shot.
Walmart is also making Marketplace returns easier. You can either print a return label from your Walmart account or go to the nearest store. If you choose the store, simply pack the item up and bring it to a Walmart Services desk, and the company will take care of the return for you. Walmart will start rolling out its expanded free shipping offer and easier return system in November. Just in time for the holidays.
