Game Plan Experts
I was trying to get this setup and working through the chat at first, I have been on Walmart and am still on Walmart and my Consumer ID and Private Key that were coming from Walmart kept showing up as invalid. So went to a phone call. They are from outside the US and the call was very choppy, along with the language barrier made it very difficult to accomplish anything. So long story short, I am going to try and find another integration partner. This one as far as I can tell may be good once you set up, but the setup process is so onerous that I wasted almost a day trying to get it done.
The Consumer ID and Private Key is extracted from Walmart and the app match it to configure the app with Walmart. The invalid error is from Walmart when they are unable to match the keys. This happens sometime but as you were connected with us on a LIVE chat this was fixed at the same time.
Also, we are glad that you are still connected with us and selling your products on Walmart successfully.

I've been having many issues with stock and variants publishing correctly. They do their best to provide support, but it is very frustrating. Not sure what the issue is, but they are very helpful in resolving issues. I only wish selling on
Walmart was a more smooth process. This is the most frustrating app I have ever used and I use at least 10 software programs for my stores and this is by far the most inefficient time wasting app ever. Tried to get a refund. Do NOT get this app. We are now using another app for Walmart
This company keeps publishing my items without my permission or knowledge. I am not ready for my items to be published yet and I keep receiving orders. I have contacted them several times but they still have not fixed the problem. Very disappointed. I would not recommend them.
DO NOT USE IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA SELLER
There are currently issues with the way Walmart.com handles sales tax for California sellers, which this app (and their support team) will not be able to assist you with.
In general, when working with Walmart Marketplace, it's a good idea to work with one of their Channel Partners to ensure things go smoothly. While CED Commerice is one of those partners, their relationship with Walmart is apparently very weak and/or they have no sense of urgency. (Walmart doesn't really seem to give them the time of day, which means any issues you have that you may want your channel partner to help with, don't actually get addressed.)
Also, other people's comments about set-up are true: Getting started is ROUGH. You will need to devote many hours over several weeks to get things going. (This is, in part, because their support is very slow, in a time zone a world away, and not everyone is entirely competant. Your mileage may vary.)
We're definitely not thrilled and have switched to a different Walmart app that has been going much better. (You get what you pay for, it would seem.)
Access Denied 2
This is by the far the WORST APP on the Shopify App Store. Majority of the syncing does not work, the pricing always gets messed up. Yan can go and fix it a million times and it still won't work. You contact their customer support, they tell you that they are going to reach out to Walmart and get back to you, yet you never hear back. They are not problem solvers.
Also, since your prices never update, half your variations become unpublished, leading to a tremendous loss of sales.
I have been fighting them to get a refund because $360 for an app that does not work 100% is quite insane, yet they keep saying give us a day to fix it for the past 10 days and nothing has changed. I have had to file complaints with Shopify and requested they help in getting a refund for this awful app
Literally a disaster of an app, and I would stay far away if I were any of you.
Please be aware that this app is FULL of bugs and issues still. I agree with most of the points from the other user below that the Map Category feature does not work and does not refresh even for days after you do the mapping. Other awful experiences with this poorly-made app:
1) We are a subscription box company so we got a UPC barcode exception from Walmart. However, this app is unable to upload products without UPC. I contacted their customer service at least FOUR times explaining this and each time, the customer rep just didn't care and gave me the same canned response that I am not allowed to upload products without a UPC.
2) Finally after several weeks of back and forth, they allowed me to upload my products to Walmart. However, there were still other errors that caused my products to not upload. I had to once again contact with un-caring customer service reps who took about a week to resolve this issue.
3) In the end, I lost about a month of not being able to properly list my products on Walmart marketplace and consequently, lost potential sales. I deleted the app and tried to get a refund for my awful experience, but they refused on the basis of Terms & Conditions.
I then just tried to upload my products directly using a .csv on Walmart seller center, and it completed with no problems in about 5 minutes. I should've just gone with this method from the beginning.

If there is a 0 star I would rate this 0. This app has caused a lot of issues for our business. Do not get this app. Beware! Customer Service negative 1 for ratings.
Here will be your issues
1. Items will not sync properly. It's already out of stock but it will sync with the walmart app saying there is still stock. There will be an order that will come in. You will need to cancel which will hurt your metrics.
2. Customer Service will never understand you and will never be able to help you and will just disconnect from your conversation
3. Item's will not load correctly even if you manually enter the details needed
4. Mapping category doesn't work properly. When you click submit you wont see the changes you made
5. This will hurt your business. Their rates are affordable but NOT WORTH IT
We had a lot of issues with this app. Our products would not load correctly, which caused us a lot of business.
We used this app for 7 months and it was nothing but problems the entire time. We contacted the company before we started using the app to make sure it was the right fit for us and asked them a couple times if certain customizations could be made and they told us yes, it would be no problem. So we made the decision to buy the app. After we configuered the app we asked them if they could please make the customizations that we had asked about before we purchased and thier customer service people all of a sudden didnt seem to understand what we were asking them about. They barely seemed trained on even the basic functionality of the app!! They said they would have to look into it and have the customizations made for us. This never happened, they did not do anything they said they would do. This made us feel like they were just telling us anything we wanted to hear to get us to buy the app.
From the very first day we started pushing our items through to Walmart, we started experiencing problems. Hundreds of listings were going up with the wrong pictures, the wrong titles, the wrong descriptions, the wrong prices. It was a huge mess. We contacted their customer support immediately and they said they would look into it. They were not able to fix the issue and instead told us that it was something we were doing wrong, which it wasn't. This company is in India and so they are in the opposite time zone and are not available to help you for about half of the US work day. So when we needed their help the most, no one was there to help. They would get back to us via email when they got into their office which didnt do much to help us on the other side of the world needing help in real time! When our staff got too technical in terminology it was clear they did not really understand what we were asking or what the issues were. They did try to help but the problems that we were experiencing were never fixed after multiple attempts. We eventually started to just try to have our own staff fix the problems which cost us thousands of dollars in extra expenses to try to clean up the mess this app caused us. We would have been far better off never getting the app and just having our staff load products directly through the Walmart back end via excel feed. Most of the products that made it through had the errors mentioned but the bulk of products we tried to push through would not even go through!! They would remain in unpublished status in Walmart and would not ever go live!
In addition to the previously mentioned problems with the listings, this app pushes the orders that come in through Shopify, so each order will have a Shopify order number and not an order from the Walmart marketplace which is very confusing and makes it impossible for staff members to search for.
After months of trying our best to work with this app and the customer service people, we simply gave up and wanted to stop using it. When we chatted them and asked how to cancel our subscription they just kept asking "what is your issue? We will fix it for you." We kept saying, thank you but we have already had you try to fix the issues and you were not able to so we would just like to cancel. And like a broken record, they just kept asking the same question, "what are your issues, why do you want to cancel?" It was literally so ridiculous, it probably went on for 20 minutes, like this before they even acknowledged what we had asked!
After we deleted the app, we left a shorter version of this review just to give other people and honest review of our experience using the app. Then, not even an hour after leaving the review, we got a phone call from this company, direct from India, from an angry Ced Commerce staff member who kept syaing, "you left us a bad review! Please tell me your issues and we will fix them. Now please remove the bad review." We again had to go through the broken record routine with this company, only this time on the phone! We explained again that your company was not able to fix the issues we were having and we just dont want to use the app anymore. It went back and forth like this for a few minutes and the Ced Commerce staff member got even more pushy with us telling us to take down the review. He began saying, "we are going to fix your issues right now, Take down the review" We had to tell him, we have thousands of products and there is no way you are going to be able to fix them all right now and he said "yes we will, we will fix them now. Now will you take down the review!?" It was unlike anything we as a company have ever experienced from another company. They literally called us and were trying to bully us into removing the review!
The next morning, a less agressive ced commerce staff member called us again to try to do the same thing!
Then they emailed us an extremely unprofessional and harrassing email. We were so shocked by what they said to us in their email, that we were compelled to edit this review and add a more detailed version (what you are reading now) of what we have experienced with this app and from this company.
The following have been copied and pasted directly from the email that we received from Ced Commerce after posting our original shorter version of this review:
- - -
"...the reviews you have shared our totally baseless and you have breached the agreement policy of ours..."
"We love our product as much as we love our customers but it's Really strange to find people like you in this modern world where they try to use technology for their own benefits and go beyond limits to defame others integrity without any pieces of evidence against the same. You don't want to use our app perfectly fine. But before telling the world about the same it was our right to know what issues you are facing which you did'nt bother sharing with us even after the support staff almost begging you to tell the issue. All the events that have led up to these mails are a clear reflection of work ethics you have been practicing in your business."

We used ced commerce for months and we shared our issues with Ced Commerce many times, and in the end, they were not able to fix ANY of the issues for us and that is why we stopped using the app. We then left an honest review about their product and the above is part of how they responded to us.
We wanted very much for Ced Commerce to work for us and for the $299 we spent on this app to be money well spent but unfortunately that is not our experience. This app failed us in every possible way and it was good money down the drain. Their customer service was some of the worst we have experienced but the worst part by far was how they treated us after we decided to stop using their product, they were rude, unprofessional and harrassed us with phone calls and emails trying to pressure us to remove this review.
Unfortunately, we cannot in good conscience recommend Ced Commerce to anyone.
Terrible company. They lied to get my company as a customer, promising a seamless integration between Walmart, Shopify, and Amazon fulfillment. We repeatedly told the support team that express and overnight shipping was not working.
We notified the support team 4 times. Every time they confirmed that the issue was fixed, even though it wasn't.
As everyone else has commented (the real reviews): this company is a scam and the support team are liars. The software doesn't work as advertised, and the support sucks. Avoid at all costs.
