If you are an existing seller migrating from Global shipping settings, the Global Shipping settings will be found under the Default Shipping Template, after the migration is complete.
New sellers will start configuring the shipping settings within the Default Shipping Template - This is assigned to the entire catalog - cannot be deleted
To offer a few more shipping options to a group of items within the inventory, sellers can setup up to 15 custom shipping templates.
Login to Walmart seller center > General Settings > Shipping Profile > Shipping Templates
Click the + New Template button
Add a name to the shipping template - Up to 25 characters
Select the shipping rate model
by weight of the order
by price of the order
There are 3 different shipping methods that can be configured in a template:
Value - Remains always on
Free shipping - is only offered to 48 states - street - Transit time can only be between 6 & 7 days
Standard - Can be disabled
Can only select 3 to 5 days of transit time
Can add multiple shipping rules depending on the region.
48 States - Street - 3 Days transit time - Free shipping
AK and HI - PO Box - 5 Days transit time - $ 5.00 per order & $ 10.00 per pound
NOTE: Sellers get Buy Box priority if they offer Free Shipping & 3 Day transit time as standard
TwoDay - Can be disabled
Seller has to be approved by Walmart - Click here to learn more
For expedited 2 day shipping
48 States - Street - 2 Days - Free shipping
So as a suggestion in get the buy box priority:
For regions close to them, they can setup a template > Select the near by regions > offer 3 day free shipping
For all other regions (far away regions), they can select 4 or 5 days as transit time
Next step is to assign the entire Walmart inventory to the shipping template of given number of SKUs using xlsx file upload on Walmart directly
