What if the Product of your Choice has gone out of Stock?
This might sound like a problem but it’s no big deal as it means that Walmart is currently ordering more. What you need to do is return periodically to see if the item is back in stock. When this will be is not a given.
You might also get a situation where Walmart runs out of an item while processing your order. In this case, Walmart will send you an email when this occurs and also when the product becomes available.
In order to get this email, simply select “get in-stock alert” while purchasing the item on the item webpage and enter your email address. Then, you can easily track your item because you will be sent a notification email when the item is back in stock.
What if you want more than one of an item but the site gives you less than the desired quantity?

In Conclusion, it’s advisable to check if Walmart has something in stock before you take the trip to a nearby Walmart store so you won’t get disappointed when you find out that what you want to buy isn’t in store at the moment.
