Walmart is looking to beef up digital sales in the next year

Wal-Mart promises 30-second returns in stores as Amazon tries to catch

Having the ability to return online orders in-store is sure to entice more purchases because there's a hassle-free way of taking them back to a physical store and not having to deal with posting or scheduled pick-ups. This new programs is basically to better serve the in-store returns, named as "Mobile Express Returns" for the online purchases. "That's why we've completely transformed the process for our customers".

Refunds will be credited to customers' payment accounts as quickly as the next day.

Beginning next month, customers who place orders online will be able to use Walmart's mobile app to process returns, the company claims, in 35 seconds or less.

The customer-facing mobile express option is expected to trim in-store returns to an average of 30 seconds. It is also planning to do the same returns process for items bought from third-party sellers on its site. Other products, including those that can not be reuse by the store once they have been opened or damaged, are expected to be added over time. "We have technology to help those things", said Eckert. "We can detect those folks that may be trying to take advantage of that system and we have the appropriate checks and balances".

China Open semi-final latest
The China Open final between Rafael Nadal and Nick Kyrgios will be played not before 7:30pm local time, 5pm IST, 11:30am GMT. Writing for the playersvoice.com.au website, Kyrgios also called the final "a disappointing end to an otherwise good week".

Initiate the Return: Using the Walmart App, select the Walmart transaction and item (s) to return and follow the prompts to start the return process.

The lanes were created specifically for Wal-Mart's Pharmacy and Money Service customers - those that fill their prescriptions at Wal-Mart, and those that transfer money at the retailer's stores.

With a steady rise in online shopping, Wal-Mart's e-commerce sales growth has been outstripping brick-and-mortar, leading the company to slash new store openings.

They will be launching "Mobile Express Returns" in November.

Cryptic note found at Las Vegas shooter's hotel room
The unnamed "mystery hooker" was not believed by investigators to have been inside the room before or during the shootings. Investigators are hoping the Paddock's girlfriend Marilou Danley can offer up some hints as to why he did it.

Walmart is also introducing a "keep it" feature for certain goods.

Spieckerman pointed to one other potential hitch as well.

All customers need to do from this point on is to take their unwanted products to the nearest Walmart store.

To be sure, none of Wal-Mart's retail peers have made a similar promise - receive a refund without bringing an item back - of such a large scale. Expect those numbers to go up as return times go down. By doing so, we believe that WMT will leverage its low-price offer, its terrestrial locations close to customers, and its best-in-class supply chain to provide an integrated customer offer and shopping experience that will be hard to replicate.
