Manufacturers and suppliers that sell their products through Walmart have access to Walmart Retail Link and Walmart Luminate Basic data.

By setting up a connector between Crisp and this portal, you can analyze the data using Crisp's easy-to-use, actionable dashboards or feed that data into any data destination

You can learn more about subscriptions to the Crisp Walmart Luminate Basic connector here.

Prepare for setting up the connection:

To set up this connection, you will create a new connector in Crisp, then you will use the information generated during setup to create a new user in Retail Link specifically for Crisp. To create new users in Retail Link, you will need admin access.

Note:  If you were previously connecting via bot account, Walmart Luminate Basic does not allow bot account users. Crisp does not use bots to access your data, our team manually downloads data from the Walmart system.

Set up your connection in Crisp:

  1. Log into your Crisp account.   

  2. From the main menu on the left side of the screen, select Connectors.
