Walmart is dropping its $35 minimum order requirement for Express Delivery.
According to Walmart senior vice president of customer product Tom Ward, the decision to drop the minimum requirement is designed to make the shopping and shipping experience easier for customers.
“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,” Ward said in a statement. “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.”
This delivery option allows customers to order food, consumables and other general merchandise. According to a Walmart news release, Express delivery is offered in approximately 3,000 of the retailer’s stores.
This service costs $10 on top of the existing delivery charge.
Walmart is maintaining the $35 minimum order for its Pickup, Delivery and Free Delivery with Walmart+ options.
