Reportedly, Walmart Stores, Inc. (WMT) customers now no longer need to meet the minimum order requirement to get the items they need in a hurry, as the retailer removes the $35 minimum order requirement for Express delivery beginning March. Express delivery offers customers to order items from Walmart’s food, consumables, and general merchandise assortments such as produce, pantry staples, everyday essentials, toys, and electronics. Express delivery costs an addition of $10 on top of the existing delivery charge, however, Walmart+ members simply pay the $10 Express fee.
“Many customers use Express delivery for when they’re in a pinch, whether it be a missing ingredient for a weeknight dinner or a pack of diapers. Customers told us sometimes the items they needed in a hurry didn’t meet the minimum, so we’re removing it, making it even easier for customers to get what they need when they need it.” stated Tom Ward, senior vice president of customer product.
Walmart offers express delivery in currently 3,000 Walmart stores, reaching nearly 70% of the U.S. population. It is one of several no-contact pickup and delivery options. Customers can go to walmart.com/grocery or the Walmart app and search their ZIP code to check if Express delivery is offered in their area.
