Walmart drops USD 35 order requirement for its delivery service

Tuesday 2 March 2021 11:43 CET | News

Walmart has revealed it is dropping its USD 35 minimum order requirement to qualify for its Express two-hour delivery service. 

The move intends to put Walmart’s ecommerce platform on better footing to compete with Amazon Prime, which has offered customers same-day delivery for certain items in specific markets through its Prime Now service since 2016, The Verge reports. In December 2020, the company dropped a similar USD 35 minimum order requirement for its Walmart Plus free next-day and two-day shipping perk.

Walmart’s Express service promises two-hour delivery of ‘Walmart’s food, consumables, and general merchandise assortment’, including produce, pantry items, household essentials, and other products. Typically, it costs USD 10 besides a standard delivery fee ranging from USD 7.95 or USD 9.95. However, Walmart waives the delivery fee if you subscribe to its Prime-like Walmart Plus subscription.
