According to experienced business specialists, the key to gain new customers is to cover more channels of communication with potential clients. Sales platforms such as Walmart, Shopify and eBay (and its payment gateways like Stripe, PayPal, Etsy, etc.) provide your customers with an easy and convenient way to complete purchases online so that business owners can enjoy the benefits of an incoming stream of customers. However, many business owners struggle to handle their accounting, which might seem tricky at first.

Start Walmart Integration from scratch
Step 1. Create an account
If you’re getting started with Synder you need to create a free trial account. On our website, you will be able to create a free trial account with no credit card information required to test Synder.
Step 2. Select the product(s) you are going to use
- Synder Sync;
- Business Insights;
- Or both of them for perfect control of your business.
Synder Sync: choose this product to push all of your transaction data from all sales channels into QuickBooks Online, QuickBooks Desktop, Xero, or Synder Books – our native accounting solution.
Business Insights: this Synder product lets you see how your business is doing. It aggregates data across all of your connected sales channels and payment gateways and provides you with timely insights into your products’ performance and your customer behaviors, as well as financial health indicators such as total sales, average order value, etc. The data is updated every hour!
Step 3. Select the platforms you would like to integrate
- Your accounting company (QBO, QBD, Xero) or proceed with the built-in Synder Books;
- Sales channels and payment gateways.
You will need to select all the services you’re using to receive payments; you’ll be able to connect all of them right away.
Alternatively, you can skip the connection and set them up later in Settings: tap the Settings button on the left side menu → hit the Add payment platform button.
Note 1: You can find our detailed guides on how to connect your sales channels and payment providers to QuickBooks Online/Xero via Synder in our Help center.
Note 2: Click View all processors to see the list of all available platforms.

Note 4: Synder constantly works on adding new sales channels and payment platforms to the list of supported integrations.
However, if you have any unsupported providers you would like to sync to your accounting system, you will find the new Excel import feature very helpful. It allows you to import any data from an Excel spreadsheet to Synder and then operate with the uploaded data as with regular transactions by syncing them to your accounting company. Now you can consolidate transaction data imports from all payment and e-commerce platforms you use at no extra cost with Synder.
Step 4. Select your accounting platform
Connect your QuickBooks Online or Xero company by clicking on the Connect button and grant permission to the software to record data in your QuickBooks or Xero company or proceed with our own Synder Books.

Step 5. 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:
- Provide your Walmart clientID;
- Provide your Consumer Channel Type;
- Provide your Walmart clientSecret.
These API credentials can be generated in the Developer Portal.
Access the Developer Portal
Log in to Walmart here.
Click Settings (the Gear icon).
Select API Key Management tab under API section.
Next, select API Key Management to access the developer site. This will automatically log you into the Developer Portal using your Seller Center credentials. You can also access various documentation by selecting the links under the Quick Links heading.
How to generate your credentials in Developer Portal
In the Developer Portal, click My Account in the top right corner, and select Marketplace (Canada) as the Login Type. Your login details are the same as your Seller Center credentials.
Next, you’ll be directed to a page where you can generate your API credentials:
- Client ID (1);
- Client Secret (2);
- Consumer Channel Type (3).
Insert the generated Client ID, Consumer Channel Type and Client Secret into the Synder connection form to authorize Synder and finish the configuration.
Connect Walmart to an existing account
If you already have a Synder account and would like to integrate a Walmart account, follow the steps below:
Step 1. Switch to the needed Organization in the top-left corner of the Synder page.
Step 2. Navigate to Settings on the left-side menu.
Step 3. In the Payment platforms section and click Add payment platform.
Step 4. Select Walmart in the dropdown.
Step 5. Provide your store region, Walmart clientID, Consumer Channel Type and your Walmart clientSecret. Hit the Connect button.
Bravo! You have set up the integration between Walmart and Synder! If you feel like some adjustments are necessary, you can manage that in Synder Settings in the left menu → hit the Configure button under your Walmart platform.
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.
