Walmart will begin introducing UK exporters to its flagship Walmart Marketplace, an online marketplace where third-party sellers serve over 120 million US shoppers each month.

Sellers who join the marketplace will have access to tools and services to help them scale up in the States, including the opportunity to get their goods to US customers within two days.

The initiative comes as Walmart works on its engagement with UK retailers after the UK government increased efforts to promote UK goods beyond the EU with its ‘Made in the UK, Sold to the World’ campaign.
