Use this guide to create M2E Pro account that links the Module with your Walmart Seller Center. Please navigate to Walmart > Configurations > Accounts, click Add Account, then complete the following steps:
Step 1: Grant M2E Pro access to Walmart account
Granting M2E Pro access make it possible for the Module to manage your Walmart account data, i.e. submit the inventory updates to Walmart, import Walmart Sales, etc.
To start with, define a meaningful account title for your internal use. You need to select a marketplace where your account is registered.
Get the API credentials
The way of getting API credentials depends on a Walmart Marketplace.
To get Access data on Walmart US, please follow the steps:
- Click Get Access Data. You will be redirected to the Walmart Developer Center.
- Log in using your Walmart Seller credentials.
- Under Username > Oauth Access Token, click Add Provider and choose M2E in the dropdown list. Provide M2E Pro with the full access permissions to all API sections.
- Click API Keys to generate Client ID and Client Secret, copy and paste the keys into the right fields on M2E Pro page.
- Click Save and Continue Edit. The Extension will be granted access to your Walmart account data.
To obtain API credentials on Walmart CA, please complete the following steps:
- Log in to your Seller Center Account.
- In Admin Panel navigate Settings > API > Consumer IDs & Private Keys.
- Copy the generated Consumer ID and Private Key to the corresponding fields on the current page.
- Click Save and Continue Edit. The Extension will be granted access to your Walmart Account data.
Important notePlease be noticed that the Private Key is common for all applications you are using. Regeneration of the key will deactivate your previous Private Key. This may cause the apps to no longer function properly.
Now you can continue account setup.
Step 2: Set up the Unmanaged Listing import
If you are already selling on Walmart and want to manage your existing Walmart inventory based on Magento data, you may enable the Import Unmanaged Listings option:
The imported Unmanaged Items can be found under Walmart > Listings > Unmanaged. You can match Items with Magento Products and move them to M2E Pro for the subsequent management. Please refer to the Manage Unmanaged Listings to learn the details.
During the initial importing, the Unmanaged Items can be mapped to Magento Products automatically based on the SKU, GTIN, Title, etc. values. To activate this feature, you need to enable the Product Mapping option and select a relevant Magento Attribute.
You will be able to apply the mapping settings to the selected Unmanaged Items using the Actions menu in Unmanaged Listing.
Step 3: Set up order creation
If you want that M2E Pro manages your Walmart sales, the Create Order in Magento option must be enabled. The feature is configured separately for the products listed by M2E Pro and products listed via Unmanaged software:
With this option enabled, M2E Pro will automatically acknowledge your Walmart orders and import them into Walmart > Sales > Sales section. The corresponding Magento order will be created per each Walmart order automatically. As a result, Magento Product stock will be reduced appropriately.
Please select from which Store View product data should be taken when Magento order is created. It is important, for example, to correctly match Walmart variational options with Magento ones during Magento order creation.
If a purchased product is not found in your Magento inventory, it can be created automatically. To do it, please set up the Product Not Found option as Create Product and Order and define the Product Tax Class if applied.
If the Create Order in Magento option is disabled, M2E Pro will not acknowledge your Walmart orders and create corresponding Magento orders. Yet, your Channel sales will still be imported into M2E Pro. At any time, you can review ones under Walmart > Sales > Orders.
M2E Pro will initiate an automatic retry to create Magento order if the initial attempt failed. Information about each attempt will be recorded to Order Log.
The mechanism of automatic retries does not cause double orders created in Magento for the same Walmart sales imported through M2E Pro.
Once you enable an automatic Magento order creation, the additional settings must be defined:
Once you configure all the options, please Save the settings.
