Walmart follows 74% of Desktop Checkout Best Practices. The biggest opportunities to reduce cart abandon would be by simplifying the checkout into a one-step checkout, and implementing full type-ahead functionality.
Walmart uses an accordion-style checkout with a persistent summary (cart items, taxes, and shipping) throughout the checkout in a right-hand sidebar. This layout results in a clear, accessible checkout process, But, the multi-step process increases the perceived checkout type as compared to a single-page checkout.
Walmart forces account creation during the checkout process, increasing checkout friction. Walmart.com, where frequent recurrent purchase are likely, is a case where we would support forced account creation. However, shifting account created post-conversion, would acheive that objective without the negative impact on the conversion rate.
The Walmart Desktop Checkout complies with 73% of our recommended best practices.
