When adding new or revising existing Walmart listings, an error or a warning message can be returned by Walmart. Unlike the warning message, an error will prevent your listing from being created or revised.
Linnworks has no control over these error messages and simply displays the errors that Walmart send us. Most of such errors are self-explanatory.
