Walmart Affiliate program is a selling platform, which operates in the US. It invites bloggers, website owners, and social media influencers to promote its products and earn commission on referring customers on Walmart’s Official website.
It is a chain of departmental selling stores that offers everything you need, from grocery items to lifestyle stuff. Its main products categories include baby products, beauty, electronics, books, clothing, accessories, jewelry, music, movies, business & personal checks, sport & outdoors, toys, and many others.
Almost at all categories, 1% to 4% commission rate is available, while the highest referral fee is offered only at the business & personal checks category, 18%.
It’s very easy to make money by using this e-commerce platform. But how can you make a Walmart affiliate? This question makes a lot of people confused, and they switch to other money-making ways. I am here to help you to learn easy steps to becoming a Walmart affiliate.

When a brand or company sponsors a small business, they require a platform to promote the products. Similarly, being an affiliate, you will need a website/blog, social media platform, or to create email marketing campaigns to interact with the target audience and start promotion.
So you can start this job from social media only if you have a huge fan following. Moreover, you can build your website, which will also be beneficial in the future. Website or blog creation is possible by using WordPress. So buy a domain and hosting. Install the WordPress from Cpanel provided by the hosting company. Install the appropriate theme and start publishing your content.
In case you already have a website, you can directly start a promotion from your site.
