    ORDER

    Yes, the update in inventory on Shopify will be reflected on the app and on Walmart.com.

    NOTE: Walmart takes upto 30 minutes in reflecting the inventory updates on Walmart.com. 

    To stop the Email notification, follow the below steps:

    • Click on the "Welcome" on top right corner.
    • Go to Profile.
    • Click on Notification.
    • Under Email Subscriptions de-select the Order Notification.
    • Hit the SAVE button.

    If you don't want to manage your Orders from the app, you need to follow the below steps:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Click on Order Management.
    • Set Order Synchronization as NO.

    This will stop the Order management via Walmart Integration App.

    There can be the following reasons for Orders not showing up in the App:

    • May be the Order is under the Failed Order section.
    • May be you have disabled the Order Settings.
    • May be the Order is already Acknowleded from other loaction.
      NOTE: If you manully acknowledge the Order from the Seller Center or if any shipping software acknowledge the Order then the app will not be able to fetch the Order. As the app only accepts CREATED state Orders.

     

    This means that a particular SKU is not present on our App; you can go to the Not-in-app section of the App on Manage Product and link your SKU with any Shopify SKU to manage orders for that SKU.
    If that SKU is not present on Shopify, you need to create it on Shopify.
    The SKU for which the order came does not have inventory on Shopify; kindly update the inventory.
    Sometimes Walmart takes some time updating inventory, and in between that, order comes and gets failed. To avoid this type of condition, set threshold inventory as 2 or 3 in the Settings section of our App. This means whenever your inventory reaches 2 or 3 (for example), it will show as Out of Stock on Walmart. This way, your orders will never get failed.
    There can be two reasons: 1: Maybe you have installed any app for Walmart other than the Walmart Integration app by CedCommerce, 2: Or maybe you have acknowledged the orders directly from Seller Center. Our app only fetches CREATED state orders.
    Unable to reserve inventory means you do not have inventory at the particular location for which the order came. So kindly check your inventory for the location for which the order came.

    This is happening because you must have deleted the Ordered SKU on Shopify. Kindly create them on Shopify to create orders.

    PRICING

    No, extensions are not entertained in case of limit.
