Maintenance is not yet supported in Item 360 for: Assortments, Import Shippers (General Merchandise), Pharmacy, and Fees. Please continue using your current processes (e.g., legacy workflows or systems).

You may export a spreadsheet in the Item 360 Maintenance Hub to update the cost for eCommerce items at the Walmart Item Number (configuration) level – across all warehouses and facilities for the items. eCommerce cost updates at the facility level are not supported in Item 360.
