he Walmart website has a new design, and it is much cleaner than Amazon’s. The retail giant has replaced with a cleaner interface that displays various departments and offers across the store.
Scroll down to the homepage to see more shopping categories and items that are specific for the current season, holidays, or events. You can also scroll horizontally through rows of products that match your search by searching for it.
Walmart vice president Tom Ward described the new format as “a more engaging and engaging way to browse” Walmart’s inventory. He noted that the banner is slideshow-style, while the rest of the page displays a list of categories and products Amazon believes you will like, based on your previous purchases.
Shopping on Walmart’s website was a pleasant experience even before the redesign. It has fewer word salad brands, which is one of my biggest complaints about the site. Sometimes it offers faster shipping options because products might be in stock at my local Walmart. Or, better yet, I can find and pick up something in-store.
Walmart has always sought to be competitive with Amazon. The new Walmart homepage is the latest effort to do so. The company has been expanding its inventory since opening its online Marketplace a decade ago. In 2020, it launched its own $12.95 per monthly Walmart Plus subscription. This offers Amazon Prime-like benefits, including free shipping, unlimited access to Paramount Plus and direct grocery delivery (for an additional $7 per month). Walmart could even challenge Amazon in entertainment by creating its own streaming service.
