List-making could soon be obsolete for Walmart's online consumers. The retail behemoth is pursuing unique and engaging grocery shoppable content.
Walmart has pioneered shoppable recipes with configurable ingredient lists and AI-powered meal planning to give quick meal inspiration and seamless buying.
Recipe sites offer similar user experiences. Tasty, Whisk, and Allrecipes contain ingredient lists that link to merchants like Walmart.com. Walmart's relationships with such sites make it easy to customize your "shopping basket"
Walmart continues to improve the customer experience with criteria like location, recommended product swapping, and item quantity changes. The Today Show's website can now filter Walmart groceries by "organic" and "low waste."
The idea of a full-service recipe book and online shop is gaining popularity among home cooks.
Shoppable recipes can contribute for 5 to 8% of online sales for supermarkets, says former Walmart executive Jordan Berke.
Walmart's e-commerce activities include augmented reality (AR) content on Snapchat. Marketing Dive reports that the agreement allows customers to make recipes with Walmart goods.
The retailer's cross-platform cooperation with Dotdash Meredith explored AI with AI-powered meal planning, visual search, and chatbots.
Partnering with Snapchat enables for a rapid user experience from product discovery to purchase, putting the focus back on cooking.
