Walmart, the largest retail chain in the USA, sells more than 35 million products at reasonable prices all over the country.
However, if you live in the UK, you might have come across a product on Walmart’s online marketplace that you want to buy. If this is the case, you might be wondering whether or not Walmart delivers to the UK. Here is what I discovered!

Why Doesn’t Walmart Ship To The UK?
Walmart does not ship to the UK because it does not ship to any location outside of the USA. Its delivery network only serves local (U.S.) customers.
How Can You Ship Walmart Goods From The U.S. To The U.K.?
Since Walmart does not ship directly to the UK, you will have to use a package forwarding company to get your items delivered from Walmart in the USA to an address in the UK.
You can use any of the following package forwarding companies for this service:
- Shop and Ship
To determine which one is the best for you, you can compare prices and customer reviews of each company from their individual websites and public forums.
Once you have selected your preferred shipping company, here are the steps you will need to follow to get your item shipped to the UK:
- When checking out from Walmart’s online marketplace, enter the address of the shipping company’s warehouse (provided by the company) instead of a U.S. home address.
- Once the parcel reaches the warehouse, you will be shown pictures of the product by the shipping company. Make sure the items are not damaged at this stage before they are shipped.
- Select a shipping package. Most companies offer a variety of combinations ranging from economic-but-slow to expensive-but-expedited ones. Standard delivery times can range between 7 to 21 days.
- Note down the tracking number once you have paid the shipping company. You will use this to track the order and will need it in case there are delays or other issues.
- Now you just have to track the items and be available to receive them on the expected delivery date at the UK address you provided to the shipping company.
How Much Will It Cost To Ship Walmart Goods To The UK?
Although each package forwarding company charges different rates for its services, you can expect to pay anywhere in the range of $15-$100+ (USD) to get your goods shipped to the UK.
Most companies will have a shipping rate calculator you can use to find the exact amount you will have to pay. Note that the heavier the parcel is and the shorter the delivery time you select, the higher the rates climb.
Because of this, you might end up paying a lot more in delivery charges than the amount you intended to save by ordering from Walmart, so this is something you should be careful about.
Are There Any Walmart Stores In The UK?
There are no Walmart stores in the whole of UK, however, Walmart owned the second-largest supermarket chain in the UK, ASDA, from 1999 to 2020.
ASDA offers similar products and services as Walmart, so it is the closest alternative to Walmart in the UK. Other options include stores like Tesco Extra, Primark, and Shein, all of which have stores across the UK.
So, in spite of its reliably fast and efficient delivery service in the USA, Walmart, unfortunately, does not deliver to the UK. However, through paying shipping fees to use forwarding companies in the U.S., Walmart customers living in the U.S. are able to deliver items bought at Walmart stores to addresses in the UK.
