Walmart Tweaks Return Policy for Products Purchased Online

Walmart Tweaks Return Policy for Products Purchased Online

In such situations, all a customer would need to do to receive a refund would be scan the item with the Walmart app on a smartphone.

"It is clear that Wal-Mart intends to continue to turn up the heat online", Moody's analyst Charlie O'Shea said in a note. Returns right now are about quadruple that time, not including any wait in line. Having to send the item back or walking into a store to have it returned is always a hassle.

Starting in December, shoppers will also have a unique option for certain items, like shampoo, household cleaning supplies and cosmetics.

"They're thinking, we're in a position to actually steal from them by allowing people to buy online from us but returning it to our stores", said John.

That includes goods that Walmart would discard anyway, like opened makeup, bruised perishable goods, or perhaps a bottle of floor cleaner damaged during delivery. In addition, according to a study by InfoScout, Walmart Pay now ranks as the No. 2 mobile wallet, despite launching chainwide only 16 months ago, and now offers customers instant access to their Walmart credit card. "We can detect those folks that may be trying to take advantage of that system and we have the appropriate checks and balances".

First, customers will use a smartphone app to indicate that they will be coming into a Wal-Mart store to make a return.

Walmart President and CEO Doug McMillon will discuss accomplishments over the past year at Walmart U.S., including traffic and comp sales improvements, strong eCommerce growth and expanded online assortment, two-day free shipping with no membership fee and over 1,000 online grocery pickup locations. Genovese Burford & Brothers Wealth & Retirement Plan Management LLC boosted its holdings in shares of Wal-Mart Stores by 3.3% during the 2nd quarter. The Details: Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. But she also cautioned that Wal-Mart's mobile express return program isn't simply being unveiled to benefit customers. Vetr raised Wal-Mart Stores from a hold rating to a buy rating and set a $75.31 price objective for the company in a report on Monday, March 27th.

The company claims the streamlined new approach will slash the time it takes to return an item from roughly five minutes to just 30 seconds.

Eckert said Wal-Mart is working to address that matter by creating a similar service that covers those returns, but it is taking additional time because of the number of third-party marketplace sellers on its site. Customers are able to access a streamlined shopping experience by ordering online and picking up their products in stores.
