The Walmart Affiliate Program is a way for you to earn commissions by placing banner ads or text links on your website to refer customers to Walmart. You’ll earn money every time a visitor follows a Walmart link on your Web site and then completes a qualifying purchase at Walmart. By signing up for the Walmart.com affiliate program through Impact Radius, you can potentially earn a 1% – 4% commission per sale.
What started small, with a single discount store and the simple idea of selling more for less, has grown over the last 50 years into the largest retailer in the world. Each week, over 275 million customers and members visit Walmart’s more than 11,300 stores under 58 banners in 27 countries and eCommerce websites.
With the fiscal year 2019 revenue of $514.4 billion, Walmart employs over 2.2 million associates worldwide. Walmart continues to be a leader in sustainability, corporate philanthropy, and employment opportunity. It’s all part of their unwavering commitment to creating opportunities and bringing value to customers and communities around the world. To know more about the brand, watch this video:
