Walmart to Launch Return App Mobile Express Returns

Wal-Mart promises 30-second returns in stores as Amazon tries to catch Wal-Mart is trying to remove a big hassle in online shopping dealing with unwanted or damaged

Return on Assets, which is expressed as a percentage, tells us how well a public company is using its assets to turn a profit.

The first change will come next month, when customers will be able to start the return process on Walmart's app.

As part of its effort to step up its ability to compete with Amazon, Walmart, looking to exploit its brick-and-mortar presence, said during Tuesday's investor day that it expects to add 1,000 locations for shipping online grocery orders during its fiscal year ending in late January 2019.

As more resources go to its web operations, Wal-Mart has significantly slowed down its pace of new store development. It's posting faster e-commerce sales growth than Amazon.com Inc. 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.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc on Tuesday forecast a 40 percent rise in US online sales next year as it ramps up competition with Amazon.com Inc, boosting shares of world's biggest brick-and-mortar retailer to the highest in more than two years. Wall Street analysts, on average, are forecasting the company's EPS to be 0.97, compared to 0.98 reported in the same quarter previous year.

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.

Walmart on Tuesday touted major growth projections for its online sales division in the upcoming fiscal year, as the Arkansas-based retailer battles with ecommerce giant Amazon for market share in the competitive sector.

Online sales still account for a small percentage of Wal-Mart's revenue, and no one expects it to overtake Amazon in e-commerce orders.

Walmart shares added 1.43% to US$81.68 in pre-market deals.

But Wal-Mart had already been delivering the goods for its shareholders this year. These lanes, originally designed for prescription and money transfer service customers, are in place in all Wal-Mart stores and ready for their additional use in processing returns.
