Walmart has announced that it will begin selling technology to assist businesses in offering in-store pickup. It expects to release the software in early 2022. It will help merchants show online buyers things that are available for pickup in shops and retailers in offering customers several pickup alternatives, such as curbside and in-store.
Walmart also intends to sell mobile technologies to assist store personnel in picking things for in-store or curbside collection and doing more complex activities. Managing pickup substitutes, sending customers messages about their store pickup orders, and providing BOPIS and curbside check-in are just a few of them.
- Walmart says this will be the first time the company has sold its technology to other retailers.
- Merchants who use Adobe’s Commerce Platform could syndicate their product catalogs and sell things on Walmart Marketplace.
- The percentage of buy online, picked up in-store (BOPIS) has grown from 7% in January 2018 to 22% in June 2021 for businesses that offer the service.
