As of April 2021 Walmart is requiring sellers to leverage Shipping Templates to manage product shipping services. By default, Walmart will apply your default shipping template to your entire catalog.
To set a default shipping template and fulfillment center in SureDone, copy the IDs from the Walmart Seller Center and enter them into the SureDone Walmart settings interface. Note: both a Shipping Template ID and Fulfillment Center ID are required to send shipping templates to Walmart via integration.

Using Multiple Walmart Shipping Templates and Walmart Fulfillment Centers
For more advanced use cases where you need to support multiple shipping templates and/or fulfillment centers across your catalog, you may create custom field for the Walmart shipping template ID and fulfillment center ID and map them in the settings. This should be a varchar field type. See the How to: Map Walmart Fields guide for more information.
During listing creation, SureDone will send the values for the fields mapped to Shipping Template ID and Fulfillment Center ID, and fall back to the values in the settings as a default. If you need to update or refresh the shipping template on Walmart, be sure to include values for the shipping template in your requests or trigger the action "relist" for a full refresh.
