Walmart Creates Website for Small Businesses, Non-profits
Walmart Business customers will also be able to add up to five users to a single account and share payment methods and ordering history across teams, according to the release. Tax-exempt organizations also can enroll in the retailer’s tax-exempt program to have taxes deducted automatically from their purchase at checkout. If a business upgrades to a Walmart Business+ account ($98/year), it’ll have access to additional features that include:
- Free shipping
- Free pickup and delivery from stores on orders more than $35
- 2% rewards on orders of $250 or more
- 5% savings on eligible purchases set to a subscription
“As we continue to evolve the shopping experience, we are committed to listening to SMB and nonprofit customers to help them address the challenges they face today, and the ever-changing challenges that come with running an organization,” Hubka said in the release.
It’s the latest effort by Walmart geared toward businesses rather than individual shoppers. The retailer also in January partnered with Salesforce to sell its retail tech to third-party retailers, offering services from its homegrown delivery company, Retail Leader reported.
