How to Cancel Walmart Order?

Walmart is a US-based retail corporation operating chains of discount stores and grocery stores. Sam Walton founded the company in 1969. Walmart has retail store chain by the name of Sam’s Club. The company also owns and operates 11,484 stores across 27 countries.

In the recent past, the company has made some significant investments in the payment services start-ups across the globe.

Company takes different forms of payments. However, as far as digital payments are concerned the company launched Walmart Pay in 2015 and it only accepts Walmart Pay as an integrated form of payment.

If you want to cancel your order, you need to do it quickly before the order has been shipped by the company.

If an order is shipped by the company, it cannot be cancelled and you will have to return the order and follow return guidelines to proceed further. To return your orders at Walmart, go through their return policy (link opens in a new tab).

The guidelines to cancel your order are different for Walmart grocery and Walmart stores and we will be taking you through both the methods to thoroughly explain the process.
