Class Description



Maximize your knowledge by gaining a greater understanding of the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) and item management.

This course provides a thorough understanding of getting your items created at Walmart, the GDSN process and managing the online item file process.

This class is specifically designed for Walmart Suppliers.

You Will Learn...



  • What GDSN (Global Data Synchronization Network) / Data Sync is
  • How to create your GTIN
  • The packaging hierarchy and why it is important
  • Differences between assortments and shippers
  • Attributes of new items and the significance of each
  • The new Item Creation Process: How to use Supplier Center to build your item’s number
  • How to complete the Item Creation template from Supplier Center
  • How to retrieve Synchronization and Publication Reports

Because Item Creation is different for each supplier, items cannot be created in a group made up of different suppliers. In this class, actually doing item creation work is limited to a few hours in Supplier Center. If you have a pressing need to create items, we suggest our Advisory Services.  

This is an all-day class. From 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM CST

Cost: $650
