Walmart announced that it is inviting select Indian sellers to apply to join Walmart Marketplace, a curated sellers community that serves more than 120 million US shoppers each month.
India is already one of Walmart’s top sourcing markets, and the company has set an ambitious goal of exporting $10 billion from India each year by 2027.
“Walmart is offering Indian businesses the opportunity to further their export dreams as Marketplace sellers,” Michelle Mi, Walmart Vice President, Emerging Markets and Business Development – Global Sourcing, said.
Walmart is seeking new sellers from India as part of a global drive to attract international sellers and expand the Marketplace’s product assortment.
Selected sellers will be able to take advantage of Walmart Fulfillment Services, which allows them to use Walmart’s warehousing and delivery infrastructure in the US, along with platform tools that help them streamline their operations and manage promotions and feedback.
Walmart also appropriately shares US customer insights and supply chain best practices and business planning strategies with its Marketplace sellers to help them succeed in the US.
“The opportunity to easily access global consumers can be transformative for Indian sellers,” said Rajneesh Kumar, Flipkart Chief Corporate Affairs Officer.
A dedicated Cross Border Trade team has been set up in India to help sellers onboard and grow on the platform.
