Monitor Seller Performance


 Walmart Marketplace closely monitors seller performance to ensure a positive shopping experience for its customers. Walmart holds its third-party sellers to high standards and regularly evaluates their performance. The evaluation process includes several key performance metrics that sellers must meet to maintain their status on the marketplace. Here are some aspects of seller performance that Walmart monitors:

1. Order Defect Rate (ODR): The Order Defect Rate is a crucial metric that measures the percentage of orders with defects, such as canceled orders, late shipments, or customer complaints. Walmart expects sellers to maintain a low ODR to ensure a positive buying experience.

2. On-Time Shipment Rate: This metric tracks the percentage of orders shipped on time. Walmart requires sellers to ship items promptly to meet customer expectations.

3. Valid Tracking Rate: The Valid Tracking Rate measures the percentage of orders with valid tracking information uploaded within the specified time frame. Sellers are expected to provide accurate tracking details to enable customers to track their orders.

4. Customer Service Response Time: Walmart expects sellers to respond to customer inquiries and messages promptly. A quick response time is essential to provide excellent customer service.

5. Product Listing Quality: Walmart monitors the quality of product listings, including accurate product descriptions, images, and relevant details. Well-optimized listings improve the customer’s understanding of the product.

6. Order Cancellations: Excessive order cancellations can negatively impact seller performance. Walmart encourages sellers to fulfill orders unless absolutely necessary.

7. Returns and Refunds: Walmart tracks the percentage of orders that result in returns or refunds. While returns are a natural part of e-commerce, a high rate may indicate potential issues with product quality or customer satisfaction.

8. Compliance with Policies: Walmart expects sellers to comply with its marketplace policies and guidelines. Non-compliance can lead to warnings or even account suspension.

9. Seller Ratings and Reviews: Customer reviews and ratings play a significant role in seller performance. Positive reviews contribute to a higher seller rating and improved visibility on the marketplace.

10. Sales Performance: Walmart evaluates sellers based on their overall sales performance, including order volume, revenue, and growth.

Walmart Marketplace provides sellers with a Seller Performance Dashboard where they can track their performance metrics and identify areas for improvement. Sellers are encouraged to maintain high standards in all aspects of their operations to provide a positive experience for Walmart’s customers. By meeting or exceeding performance standards, sellers can improve their visibility and competitiveness on the Walmart Marketplace platform. Please note that Walmart’s seller performance metrics and policies may be subject to change, so it’s essential for sellers to stay updated by referring to Walmart’s official seller resources and communication channels.
