What Happens If You Don’t Pick Up Your Walmart Order

If you’re like most people, you probably do your grocery shopping at Walmart. It’s convenient and affordable, and there’s a store located close to practically everyone in America. But what’s gonna happen if you don’t pick up your Walmart order? In this blog post, we’ll answer all of those questions and more! We’ll also tell you what to do if you need to cancel or reschedule your Walmart pickup order. So, keep reading for all the information you need!

What Happens If You Don’t Pick Up Your Walmart Order in Time?

In case you don’t pick up your order from Walmart in time, the first thing that will happen is that you’ll receive a notification from Walmart. This notification will let you know that your order is ready for pickup, but it will also include a warning that if you don’t pick up your order within a specified time frame, it will be canceled.

Alternatively, you may be contacted by a Walmart customer service representative, who will attempt to reach you to schedule a new pickup time. If they cannot reach you, or if you don’t respond to their attempts to contact you, your order will probably be canceled.

So, make sure you keep an eye on your phone, inbox (or your Walmart app) so that you don’t miss the notifications! 

How Long Will Walmart Keep My Order?

After you place an order with Walmart, the store will keep it for seven days. 

If you do not collect your Walmart order within seven days of the original pickup date, it will be canceled. Additionally, in some cases, you may be charged a restocking fee.

However, if you miss your grocery order, it will be discarded if you don’t collect it on the day Walmart allocates it for you. Luckily, you can still save your grocery order if you let Walmart workers know you won’t be able to make it on time and reschedule it for a different day or time that is convenient for you. 

How to Reschedule My Walmart Order?

At Walmart, you can reschedule the time for receiving your items as long as they are still in storage. If the order has already been delivered to the store for pickup, you, unfortunately, can no longer change the pickup time or date. 

To reschedule your Walmart order pickup time before your current window closes, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Walmart account through Walmart’s website or Walmart’s app
  2. Select “Account” from the menu options
  3. Click on “Purchase History”
  4. Find the order you would like to edit and select it
  5. Choose “Edit items” from the options provided
  6. Reschedule your time slot for delivery or pick-up  
  7. Finally, don’t forget to click “Save” so your changes can be processed

What If I’m Running Late for My Walmart Grocery Pickup?

If you’re running late, don’t worry! Just give the Walmart store a call with your estimated time of arrival. If you’re not able to pick up your order before the store closes at 8 pm, Walmart will cancel it for you.

What If I Missed My Pickup Time?

If you have already missed your pickup time, don’t worry! You can still receive your order. Here’s what you can do:

  1. Even if you’ve missed your pickup window, you can go to your chosen Walmart location and pick up your order.
  2. If you happen to miss your Walmart pickup window, don’t worry! You will receive an email from us where you can reschedule. All you need to do is follow the instructions in the email and Walmart will take care of the rest.

Can I Cancel My Pickup Order from Walmart?

You can usually cancel an order from Walmart as long as it has yet to be fulfilled or shipped. Just keep in mind that not every pickup order can be canceled. If your order is eligible for cancellation, you will be able to see this option in your purchase history on Walmart’s official website or on the Walmart app.

Canceling an eligible Walmart pickup order is easy. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Log in to your Walmart account on the official Walmart website or the Walmart app
  2. Click “Account,” then “Purchase History”
  3. Find the order you wish to cancel
  4. Scroll down the page and search for the “Request Cancellation” option
  5. Click on “Request Cancellation” if it’s available

Will I Get a Refund If I Don’t Pick Up My Order from Walmart?

If you’re not able to cancel your Walmart order or don’t collect it within 7 days, you’ll be refunded. You can request a refund at any point during the 7-day window.

When you initiate a refund request, Walmart will typically process the refund at the end of that business day. You will be refunded through the same method of payment as when you first made the purchase.

The funds will show up in your bank account within 3-5 business days after Walmart employees process the request. Additionally, posting and processing times may vary by bank.

Can I Change My Delivery Type from Pickup to Delivery?

Unfortunately, you cannot change the delivery method once the order has been placed. However, if your order is still being processed, you may be able to reschedule the pickup time slot. For more information on how to edit your order, check out Walmart’s guide on how to change the details of your order.

What Is the Restocking Fee at Walmart?

Although Walmart can technically charge customers a restocking fee for pickup orders that have been canceled, they do not disclose this information to the public.


So, there you have it! If you’re not able to cancel your Walmart order or don’t collect it within seven days, your order will be canceled, and you’ll be refunded. You can also reschedule your pickup time in case your order is still being processed. However, you cannot change the delivery method once the order has been placed. If you have any questions, you can always contact the Walmart customer support team for more information!
