Walmart.com can be a lucrative source of inventory either for simple resale or for making bundles. Many online sellers buy from there and resell on Amazon or other marketplaces. If you are buying for resale, you can avoid paying sales tax both online and in store.
If you buy from Walmart.com for the purposes of reselling their inventory on another website such as Amazon, you can apply for TAX EXEMPT status to avoid paying sales tax.
- Make sure you have a SALES TAX / RESALE CERTIFICATE from your own state
- Set up a business buying account for Walmart.com
- Follow these instructions on WALMART’s WEBSITE on how and then fill out the application
- Once you are approved you should be able to make business purchases and no tax will be applied
In order to make IN STORE tax exempt purchases, go to customer service with your SALES TAX / RESALE CERTIFICATE and apply. They will give you a card (or multiples) that you can then give to any cashier at any point and you will receive the exemption.
