* Walmart started inviting third-party sellers to its new fulfillment service on Tuesday, following a trial run over the past few months.

* The new service, called Walmart Fulfillment Services, helps store and ship products for third-party merchants selling on its site, and provides other services like returns and customer support.

* Walmart also said it plans to eventually open up the service to non-Walmart products and offer its own shipping service for inventory going to its warehouse.

* Walmart’s e-commerce business still lags far behind Amazon’s, accounting for just 5% of the US market, according to eMarketer.
