Enabling the Walmart Inventory feed on your Zentail integrations page gives Zentail permission to send inventory data to Walmart. Before you enable this feed option, make you are confident about the inventory in Zentail.

Key Considerations

When does Zentail send inventory to Walmart?

Please note that Zentail will send inventory info to Walmart:

  1. If the Inventory Sync Feed is enabled

  2. The SKU is set to "List" to Walmart

  3. The SKU is an "active" SKU on Zentail

If the above conditions are satisfied, Zentail will send a price feed to Walmart:

  1. Whenever the inventory changes on Zentail as a result of a change from anywhere other than Walmart* OR

  2. At least once every 24 hours

*This means, if you upload a new quantity into Zentail, or an order comes in from a non-Walmart channel, then Zentail needs to notify Walmart of the new quantity. If the quantity changes due to an order on Walmart for that SKU, Zentail does not need to inform Walmart of the new quantity. Walamrt has already deducted quantity to account for that order.

Steps to complete before enabling the Inventory feed

  1. Make sure your integration is in Production Mode

  2. Turn on your Orders Sync with all necessary channels

  3. Upload accurate inventory into Zentail

  4. Set up your fulfillment lead time
    - On a warehouse level
    - On a SKU level

When you should NOT enable the Inventory Sync feed

If any of the below circumstances apply to you, you may want to keep the inventory sync feed disabled.
