The Application Programming Interface (API) allows for automated communication between connected systems. In order to automate fulfillment, API Access must be enabled.
The Walmart Marketplace and Walmart Drop Ship Vendor APIs are two separate APIs requiring different API credentials. If you need to utilize the Walmart Drop Ship Vendor connection, please see the suite of Support articles here: Walmart Drop Ship Vendor.
The following steps are required to enable API Access to Walmart Marketplace:
- Gathering API Credentials from Walmart Marketplace
- Entering API Credentials in DropStream
