Walmart Research


In 2009, Walmart launched Walmart Marketplace. Products from retailers are displayed alongside Walmart’s own inventory and are called out as Walmart Marketplace items, with the seller’s name displayed on the items. While initially requiring an invite, in 2016 they made it easier to join the marketplace in hopes to accelerate its growth.
