Walmart Extends Free Two-Day Shipping Offer to Third-Party Items

  • World’s biggest retailer trying to snag more holiday spending
  • Online customers spend nearly twice as much as in-store buyers

Walmart Inc. is extending free two-day shipping next month to millions of third-party products sold over its website, part of the company’s aggressive push to capture online shoppers.

The world’s biggest retailer already offers the free service for orders of $35 or more on items it sells directly, which has helped it boost sales and keep pace with Amazon.com Inc. Walmart will also let shoppers drop off returns of third-party items at its 4,700 stores, rather than having to ship them back.
