Walmart to Launch New Membership Program
BENTONVILLE, AR - Retail giant Walmart launched the delivery membership program, dubbed Delivery Unlimited, in September in an effort to compete with other big-name e-commerce players. The retailer has since made multiple changes to its delivery scheme, parting ways with its partner Skipcart earlier this month. In a recent report, Walmart stated that it is now launching a rebrand of its Delivery Unlimited service and testing a membership program named Walmart+.
According to the news source Vox, the Walmart+ program is designed to offer perks that customers cannot access from other e-commerce operators. This includes a text messaging system that would allow shoppers to place orders more easily. The retailer has also teased discounts in multiple departments and a Scan & Go service that mimics the popular cashierless format.
While a spokesperson from Walmart did confirm that the Walmart+ program is indeed being developed, we currently do not have further details about this innovative concept.
