Walmart is one of the biggest retail chains in the world, selling a wide array of products, from apparel to home and garden supplies, at competitive prices. Walmart sells through its chain of physical retail locations and its eCommerce website.
How we integrate with Walmart
In order to begin trading with Walmart, a supplier must be able to send and receive transaction documents electronically, conforming to the company’s x12 EDI standards.
Traditionally, this involved paying a third-party EDI provider to set up and maintain the connection and process transactions with software that doesn’t integrate with the rest of your business systems. This created added costs in setup and ongoing administration of multiple software solutions.
Cin7 eliminates the need for third-party EDI software, automating and streamlining your transaction processes in a single interface. Cin7 is fully compliant with Walmart to send and receive the following transaction documents:
- 850 Purchase Order– Receive purchase orders directly in Cin7.
- 856 Advanced Shipping Notice – Use Cin7 to let Walmart know when to expect the delivery.
- 820 Payment Order/Remittance Advice
- 810 Invoice – Send invoices directly from Cin7.
- 997 Functional Acknowledgment – Send and receive notifications that a document was received.
