Last updated 31/08/2020

This article explains how to customize your Walmart Marketplace integration.

Finding the Settings


The integration with Walmart Marketplace can be configured to suit your business from the Settings page.

To locate the settings:

  1. Whilst logged in as an administrator, from the left navigation select Integrations and then click on Walmart Marketplace.
  2. From the top right of the page, click Settings.

Stock Settings


Ticking the Stock checkbox will enable stock to be updated from Cin7 to Walmart Marketplace.

Last Updated

When updating stock, only stock that has changed after this date will be updated. Simply leave this field alone at all times unless under special circumstances.

Auto Sync Stock

Ticking this box will sync stock levels when ever you visit the admin screen of a module and whenever you download an order. We recommend only ticking this box if you are confident your stock levels are accurate.

Get Stock Levels From

When updating stock levels, you can choose to only update stock levels from a particular branch.

Stock Levels To Update To Walmart Marketplace

When updating stock levels, you can choose how to calculate the stock number to update.

Stock available Stock on hand minus open orders - i.e. stock you can dispatch without disappointing other customers.
Stock on Hand The stock you have physically available, regardless of outstanding orders.
SOH Less Open Orders within 7 days of ETD You may choose this if you can replenish stock within a week. The ETD must be entered for all outstanding orders for this to be accurate.
SOH Less Open Orders within 30 days of ETD You may choose this if you can replenish stock within a month. The ETD must be entered for all outstanding orders for this to be accurate.


Subtract Buffer Stock From Stock Levels

Add in buffer stock levels to ensure you never oversell.

Orders Settings


Ticking the Orders checkbox will enable orders to be downloaded from Walmart Marketplace to Cin7.

What Orders to Download

Last Updated

When downloading orders, only orders that have been updated after this date and time will be downloaded. After orders are downloaded successfully, these fields will be changed automatically to the current date and time.

Auto Update Order Status

This will automatically update the status of your orders upon visiting the review screen of an order.

Auto Download Orders

Turn on the automatic download schedule:

We will check for orders at first every 5 minutes. If no orders are pulled down, we will wait a little longer - 10 minutes - before checking again. If nothing is found, we’ll wait 20 minutes before checking again and so on. At most, we'll check every 2 hours. If an order is downloaded, we’ll wait 5 minutes all over again.

Choose from the drop down when the schedule should start each day.

Set Default Stage to

Choose the Cin7 stage orders should be created under. If set to blank no stage will be applied. This is useful if you want to filter your Walmart orders by stage.

Inventory

Auto Dispatch Orders

Cin7 can attempt to dispatch orders automatically upon download - this option is useful if you prefer to dispatch from the Walmart module, and simply download orders for stock purposes only. This is not possible for those orders that have batch or serial numbers, or in cases when there is not enough stock.

Automatically Load BOMs for Kits

If you have a bill of materials (or BOM) assigned to your finished products, you can choose for the BOM to be expanded automatically when you download orders. This requires the finished product to have its Order Type set to 'Kit' in the product details.

Branches

Set Default Branch to

Set the branch for all new Walmart orders to be downloaded into. The branch can be changed manually in a Sales Order before it is dispatched.

Route Branch by Country and Stock

Branches can be routed based on country, state, shipping options, and stock. See more information in the Branch Based Routing help file.

Customers

How To Create Or Assign A Customer From An Order

This option controls how customer records should be handled when orders are downloaded. The options allow you to match to existing contacts based on email address or ID.

You can also download all orders to one predefined contact, regardless of the customer's details in the original order. This may be useful if you do not wish your CRM to be filled by online customers.

If Customer ID or email exists update customer or else insert new customer
If Customer ID or email exists do not update or else insert new customer
If Customer ID exists do not update else assign to selected customer
If email exists update customer else insert new customer
If email exists update customer else assign to selected customer
Assign to selected customer

Assign To CRM Customer Group (Optional)

This option will assign new customer contacts in the CRM to a particular reporting group. Options are populated by the Customer Groups, which can be added in the Settings page.

Customer GL Account

Choose an Alternative General Ledger account to apply to customers that are imported into Cin7 through Walmart Marketplace orders. This will apply the Alternative GL Account at the customer level.

Accounts

Invoice Options

Each order is downloaded to Cin7 individually. However when importing orders to your accounting software, you may not wish to import each order. This option allows you to batch invoices for accounting purposes.

Allow batch invoices This will leave the invoice date blank and an invoice number will not be generated until you fill it in manually or process a batch of payments.
Import Invoices Individually This will add an invoice date and generate an invoice number for all new Walmart Marketplace orders.

Order GL Account (Optional)

Choose an Alternative General Ledger account to apply to Walmart Marketplace orders. This will apply the Alternative GL Account at the order level.
