â€œWalmart has the best products at everyday low prices, but we know there are some great undiscovered products that have not yet reached our shelves,â€ Venky Harinarayan, senior vice president of Walmart Global e-commerce, said in a press release. â€œFor a long time, the ability to get a product into a retail store was at the sole discretion of the store buyer. Today, we are removing these barriers by giving anyone a chance to launch their product at Walmart and reach millions of shoppers nationwide.â€
