Teapplix can directly integrate with Walmart DSV (dropship vendor) platform, without EDI or any other 3rd party software components.
[ As of 11/2017, this is considered Beta release by both Teapplix and Walmart ]
Setup is done by enter API credentials on Setup => Others. You can obtain your credential by logging into your Walmart Partner Portal.
Teapplix currently supports order sync (downloading orders, and marking them shipped afterwards).
Teapplix also support DSV listing download and quantity management. Price change is not supported, as DSV pricing is managed by Walmart.
Notice that as part of the setup, you need to enter your Distribution Facility "Distributor ID":
Currently only shipping from the main Distribution Facility is supported. Enter the numerical "Distsributor ID" into the setup box.
Multiple Distribution Facility
If you have multiple distribution facility, each one is treated as a separate Walmart DSV account. You can add additional accounts, each with a different prefix. As long as the distribution id is different, everything will work correctly.
Orders Cancelled or Shipped Outside of Teapplix
If you cancel an item from your Walmart order, next time when Teapplix sync the order, cancelled items will be removed from your Teapplix order. If all the items for a Walmart order are cancelled, then Teapplix will not remove items, it will simply mark the order "Cancelled"
If you ship all the item for an Walmart order, Teapplix will mark the order "Shipped".
Cancelling Walmart Orders In Teapplix
[ As of 12/2017, cancel DSV order in Teapplix, or remove items on Teapplix update order screen, will not result in any cancel on Walmart DSV. Please perform all cancel on Walmart DSV Portal. The following logic will be implemented in January 2018 and this notice removed once implemented. ]
If you cancel an Walmart in Teapplix , Teapplix will cancel all lines of the order on Walmart. If you want to cancel specific lines, update the order in Teapplix and "cancel" on the specific line. That line will be cancelled in Walmart.
Due to Teapplix design where we do not allow an order with no lines, if you want to cancel an entire order, not just a specific line, you must mark the order status as "Cancelled" using bulk update.
Special Shipping Requirements For Walmart DSV and Ship To Store Orders
Walmart may place special shipping requirements on vendors. Some vendors are required to ship orders using Walmart provided UPS or FedEx accounts and ship using "bill 3rd party". To setup such shipping, you create a special shipping profile dedicated to Walmart DSV, and link in such accounts.
Please refer to this help page for more detailed instruction:
Bill to 3rd-Party & Ship to Store
Notice that Walmart may also require that you put specific information into "Reference1" and "Reference2" fields on such shipping labels. Teapplix shipping profile setup allows you to put macros or hard wired values in such Reference fields. Please contact Teapplix support on how to setup your shipping profile to meet specific Walmart DSV requirements.
