There can be a number of reasons why you would want to delete a listing or retire an SKU from Walmart Seller Center as a seller; you might not be able to list your product to Walmart or might have a different SKU using the Universal Product Code (UPC) and you need to retire the product.
Also, if you are trying to list an SKU but you receive an error from Walmart stating “Unable to complete the product data setup process” or “Unable to override SKU because there exists another source product from the same seller/org ID” then this is the perfect guide for you.
Walmart only permits one SKU per UPC in the Seller Center. Because of this, you should remove any SKU that currently exists in your Walmart Seller Center for a specific UPC before adding another SKU with the same UPC.
Retiring Walmart SKUs on per SKU Basis
If you wish to retire individual Walmart SKUs, follow the following steps:
- From your Walmart account, search for the integrations page
- Locate the Walmart card and click it
- In the Retire SKU section, enter the SKU that you wish to retire
Retiring SKUs in Bulk
Use the “Bulk Actions Suite” to search for the SKUs you want to retire, then create a custom bulk action to retire the SKUs in bulk. Pick the “Delete/Archive on Channel” action type, then pick the Walmart integration from the list of available integrations.
