5. Connect your Walmart account

Almost there! If you want to use Walmart’s REST APIs to manage your business in any way, you need to enter a couple of important things to access the APIs:

These API credentials can be generated in the Developer Portal.

Access the Developer Portal

  • Client Secret (2);
  • Consumer Channel Type (3).

3. Insert the generated Client ID, Consumer Channel Type and Client Secret into the Synder connection form to authorize Synder and finish the configuration.

Tips and tricks on the Walmart integration

1. It works with Walmart Orders only.
2. Walmart allows fetching orders created in the last 180 days and a maximum of 20000 orders at a time.
3. Synder doesn’t fetch fees and refunds for Walmart Canada, because their API does not support getting ReconReports (that’s where Synder takes fees from) and Refunds/Returns.
