Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is out to grab a bigger piece of the e-commerce pie.
Wal-Mart Marketplace, the retail giant’s latest salvo in the online shopping wars, is expanding walmart.com’s assortment and broadening its range of prices. The program is bringing select retailers to walmart.com, where they will sell products seamlessly integrated into the Web site. Consumers’ only hint the item isn’t supplied by walmart.com is a discreet box on the product page that says “Sold by Wal-Mart Marketplace” and the name of the retailer in small type. Walmart.com is handling orders and the retailers are responsible for fulfillment, shipping, customer service and returns. Walmart.com declined to discuss the terms of the partnerships.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
