BENTONVILLE, Ark. and LONDON, UK., June 13, 2022 —Walmart has begun a major push to bring U.K. exporters to its flagship U.S. Walmart Marketplace, a well-established online marketplace where a trusted community of third-party sellers serve a growing base of more than 120 million loyal U.S. shoppers each month.
Sellers approved to join the marketplace will be offered the services of a dedicated onboarding team, as well as access to powerful tools and services to help them rapidly scale up across the Atlantic, including the opportunity to get their goods to U.S. customers within two days*.
The move to embrace U.K. exporters expands on decades of Walmart’s engagement with U.K. retailing and comes as the British government increases efforts to promote U.K. goods beyond the EU with its ‘Made in the U.K., Sold to the World’ campaign. U.S. and U.K. trade representatives met earlier this year to deepen trade ties and boost the two nations’ thriving £200 billion relationship.
Darren Carithers, senior vice president of Marketplace Development for Walmart International, offered British exporters the “full support of the Walmart team” as the world’s leading omnichannel retailer continues to invest heavily in the Marketplace and prioritize its growth.
