Walmart to Roll-out Free Next Day Delivery in the US

Walmart next day delivery

To fight the efforts from Amazon to roll out free NextDay delivery for Prime members throughout the US, Walmart has announced a new program that offers the same service without requiring customers to pay money or become a member as Prime does.

Walmart says that the move is an extension of a program launched in 2011 which offered free two-day shipping with no membership fee.

According to Walmart, the Free NextDay delivery service will be available on a wide range of general merchandise and will be launched first for customers in Phoenix and Las Vegas. It will roll out gradually over the “coming months” with a goal of reaching about 75% of major US population in the next 12 months, which would equate to 40 of the top 50 metro areas.

Walmart says that NextDay is a standalone, curated shopping experience with customers able to browse 220,000 of its most frequently purchased items, with more products being added as time goes by.

Although there is no membership fee for the service, there is a minimum purchase amount and will only be offered on orders over $35. Everything that the customer places into the NextDay delivery basket must be eligible, to get the free delivery. There will be a cut-off time for orders to be received to be delivered the next day and the cut-off time will vary by location.

Walmart says that it is on track to offer Grocery Pickup from 3,100 stores and same-day grocery delivery from 1,600 stores by the end of 2019. Walmart says that will provide coverage for Grocery Pickup to 80% of the US population and same-day delivery to 50% of the US population by year’s end.
