Walmart EDI FAQs
Here are some common questions about Walmart and EDI.
What is EDI compliance?
EDI (or “electronic data interchange”) is a combination of both systems and processes that give retailers the capacity to exchange documents and transactions with their suppliers, vendors, and brands in a standard electronic format.
When a merchant is “EDI compliant”, they have software or integrations that enable their business to send documents to and receive documents from their retail partners, according to that retailer’s specific requirements.
Why do businesses need to be EDI compliant?
Businesses need to be EDI compliant if they want to sell their products to a retail partner, or if they want to sell their products to consumers via a retail partner’s online ecommerce store. EDI simplifies, streamlines and (in some cases) automates document translation and communication, which speeds up the retail fulfilment processes while preventing mistakes.
How do you become Walmart EDI compliant?
To become Walmart EDI compliant, a merchant must obtain access to the retail link; read, follow and understand all the available documentation; choose a preferred computer software, install it, and complete all the internal testings; obtain the GEM mailbox and the upload/download security certificate; and complete applicability statement 2 (AS2) testing.
Alternatively, a merchant can partner with ShipBob, which is an approved EDI service provider for Walmart. Our EDI integration enables retail distribution and retail dropshipping for Walmart as well as other leading retailers.
