1/ Creating an A2X for Walmart account
Create a new A2X for Walmart account from the Walmart sign-up page.
If you already have an existing A2X account, you will be asked to confirm that you wish to create a new account. So, this is where you need to choose 'Continue with New Account'.
In the next window, choose 'Continue to Your New Account'.
Once your account is created it should look like this:
Now you are ready to set up your new A2X for Walmart account.
2/ Connecting an A2X for Walmart account to your Walmart Seller Center

3/ Connecting to your accounting system
Click the Connect button for your accounting system and proceed with the connection process. You will be redirected to your accounting system to grant A2X permission.
If you are connecting A2X for Walmart to the same accounting system that you are already connected to with a different A2X account (either with Amazon, Shopify or a different Walmart Seller Center Account), you should choose to share the existing connection, rather than create a new connection.
4/ Configuring the accounts and taxes for your Walmart Settlements
You need to configure A2X for Walmart to map your Walmart transactions into your accounting system.
A2X will offer to create several generic default accounts, or you can select your own individual mappings. We recommend working with your accountant on this initial setup as it will impact how the Walmart transactions appear in your financial reporting.
You can also customize how the A2X transactions are created, such as grouping the sales by province in the Settings > Invoice section of A2X. This can help if you have specific tax handling requirements for some states.
You can disable, configure and preview these settlements in Settings > Connections.
Please Note: For more information about these mappings or if you have specific requirements that are not handled by the current mapping, please contact the A2X support team.
5/ Posting your Settlements and reconciling them in your accounting system
Once you have connected and configured your account, you can send your Settlements to your accounting system. To do that, click the Send link.
You will then see the settlement in your accounting system and be able to match or reconcile it to the corresponding deposit. For example, below is Xero's bank reconciliation screen showing the matching payouts.
