Walmart to Monetize its E-Commerce Technology


Walmart announced that it plans to monetize the software and retail technologies it has leveraged to convert its business from brick-and-mortar to one that combines both in-person and online shopping for other retailers. Utilizing its strategic partnership with software giant Adobe, Walmart plans to integrate access to its ‘Marketplace’, along with additional online and in-store fulfillment and pickup technologies, into the Adobe Commerce Platform. Per Adobe, these technologies will be made available to both Adobe Commerce and Magento Open-Source customers. The newly inked partnership would enable Walmart to reach thousands of small to mid-sized retailers, and to tap into the same tools and technologies that one of the largest global retailers is using to run their operations.
