RFID Solutions for Walmart Suppliers

All the tools and support you need to meet Walmart’s expanded RFID requirements.

Walmart is expanding their RFID labeling requirements to new product categories in 2022. Thousands of suppliers of home products, electronics, sporting goods, toys, and automotive batteries must add RFID tags to their products beginning in Q3 of this year.

The new RFID requirements apply to all national, proprietary, supplier, and private brands.

This covers all home products, electronics, sporting goods, toys, and automotive batteries.

Initially, you can add a secondary RFID label to your products.

Eventually, RFID inlays will need to be embedded into product packaging.

This change impacts all Walmart USA Stores.

This includes Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and .com Merchandise.
