Walmart plans to launch an Amazon Prime-like subscription plan

Thursday 9 July 2020 12:02 CET | News

Walmart has planned to roll out a subscription service in July 2020 to expand its ecommerce efforts and compete with Amazon’s Prime programme.

According to Business Insider, details about the programme are still unclear. However, it was reported that the service, called Walmart+, will cost USD 98 per year. The programme may include gas discounts, members-only deals, and unlimited same-day delivery for groceries and other merchandise.

Moreover, the reported upcoming roll out of Walmart+ comes at a time when ecommerce and online fulfilment is crucial to coronavirus-wary shoppers. Therefore, one proposed benefit of Walmart+ is enabling subscribers to receive a priority treatment when it comes to grocery delivery slots.

Overall, the upcoming launch might also increase competition between the players, as Walmart+ might offer a competitive alternative to the Amazon Prime service.
