Walmart is a great shopping site with the incredible reputation on both the number of products and quality of services. As many other websites for selling and buying, Walmart demands its users to open a new account before making any purchase. And, as the reputation may tell you, the process is pretty quick and simple. However, if you don’t want to figure it out yourself, you may find all the information you want here, in this post.
Advantages coming from signing up
Having a Walmart account, besides having access to a large variety of products, you have gained a good bunch of benefits.
Receiving Your Order’s Status
Once you have placed an order, you will be kept updated with information related to it via emails. The Walmart system is supposed to let you know when the purchase is confirmed when the items are on the way, and when you receive the order. If something unexpected happened, they will let you know as soon as possible and protect your rights.
Multiple Address Available
One account doesn’t mean only one address. You can save multiple in an address book and choose one from it for checkout. The number of names and addresses are unlimited, so you are free to send Walmart products for as many friends as possible.
Photo Sharing Features
Do you know that you may upload, save and share your photos on the site? When you receive a product, don’t forget to take a picture of it and post on Walmart. Other buyers may find it helpful.
Create Your Own Wish List
Even when you don’t buy, you can save the items you want on a list to keep track of them. Who knows when you may have enough money to afford everything you have set your eyes on.

The Secrets of Shopping on Walmart
Find the Items You Want to Buy
To look for your desired product, type in the search bar (the white, rectangle one at the top of the page) and press enter. The Walmart search engine will create a list of choices related to your search term.
If you want to have a larger variety of items to select, check the list of categories out. You may find it on the up-left corner when you click on the symbol featuring three horizontal lines. Click on the product to see the information on specifications, price, shipping fees, and reviews from previous customers. When you receive the item, you can leave comments like these, too.
Go On to Your Cart
If the product’s information pleases you, click on Add to Cart to send it into your buy list. Continue searching for other items if you still want.
Once you have all the things you desire in the cart, review it before checkout. To reach the Cart, you can click on the cart symbol at the top of the page, or choose View Cart after adding the last item. If you want to buy more than one of a product, change the quantity. Unwanted items can be removed on the same page, too.
Given that you have completed the order, choose Check Out to start the Paying and Receiving process.
Finish the Order
If you haven’t signed in, it’s time to do so.
To complete the process, you need to provide your shipping address and choose a payment method. The address may be a new one, or you can pick it from your address book. After making sure it’s where you want the item to reach, select the shipping speed so you will get an estimated arrival date. Some items have only one shipping method, though, get over it.
If you would like to go and get the order yourself, it’s totally fine. You have to choose a store, which is nearest to your house, from the Pickup list. If there is no store in your neighborhood, just enter a different zip code to see if there is one in the next town. Click on Continue after making your decision.
You are required to provide the name of the person who goes to get the product and another one that may come given that the primary choice cannot make it. You should leave your phone number there to receive messages concerning the order, too.
Paying and Receiving
Enter any coupon or promo codes if you have. In terms of payment methods, check the list to see if you can pay through one of them. They are the only ways of paying accepted by Walmart
