Documents Required to Apply for Walmart Seller Central

Although Walmart is strict with its rules and guidelines as to who can sell on Walmart, the application process is quite simple. It only takes a few minutes for vendors to fill out and submit the application form.

Among the many requirements, Walmart demands certain documents to be uploaded along with the Seller application. 

Following is a list of documents that sellers need to attach to their Walmart Seller Central applications:

Documents Required to Apply for Walmart Seller Central

  1. Business Tax ID (United States)

A business Tax ID is the Employer Identification Number (EIN) that you can get by applying with the IRS. Getting an EIN has been made easier, especially with the IRS assistance tool. Remember that the Employer Identification Number (EIN) is considered as the Business Tax ID and not the Social Security Number (SSN).

  1. W8/W9 and EIN Verification Letter

W8 forms are issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and they need to be filed by individuals and businesses in the United States to verify their country of residence for tax purposes. This also certifies them for a lower withholding tax rate.

It may be necessary for you to fill out a W9 form if you deal with a business that pays you as an individual contractor or business, as well as freelancers or self-employed individuals, or pay you dividends or interest so that your 1099 form is prepared accurately.

The EIN or Employer Identification Number Verification Letter is sent to you by the Inland Revenue Service (IRS) when your EIN application has been successfully processed.

  1. US Business Address

Walmart requires sellers to provide the business address in the United States or the place where the physical operations of the business take place. This helps Walmart identify the business directions and may be used for future correspondence.
