Walmart removes $35 minimum order requirement for Express delivery

State News

BENTONVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Walmart is removing the $35 minimum order requirement to receive its Express delivery service, the company announced on its corporate blog on Monday.

The Bentonville-based retailer currently offers Express delivery — which allows orders to be delivered to customers’ doors in two hours or less — in nearly 3,000 stores.

The Express delivery service costs $10 on top of the existing delivery charge, and there is no markup on items. Walmart+ members must only 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,” said senior vice president of customer product Tom Ward. “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.”

Walmart says it relies on its team of more than 170,000 trained personal shoppers to pick customers’ orders.
