Walmart U.S. eCommerce
Major innovations. Massive scale. Imagine the possibilities.
Did you know the world's largest brick-and-mortar retailer is also one of the fastest growing and most dynamic e-commerce organizations? We're creating an experience that lets customers shop anytime, anywhere — delivering exactly what they want, when they want it.
Our largest website, Walmart.com, sees up to 100 million unique visitors a month, according to comScore, and is growing every year. With innovations like Online Grocery Pickup, NextDay shipping and a whole host of apps, we’re providing customers with more ways to save time and money while reimagining how digital and physical shopping work together.
In 2016, Walmart acquired Jet.com and began expanding its portfolio of e-commerce sites. As part of the Jet acquisition, Hayneedle.com (home furnishings) also joined our family. Walmart acquired additional specialty e-tailers and digital brands over the next two years.
The result? An unparalleled selection of brands and categories, and a family of sites that provides a great end-to-end experience for customers.
