Wal-Mart, No 4 in the E-commerce  on U.S. Retailers. Today’s launch makes it an attractive alternative to Amazon Prime, which costs $99/year.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is hoping free shipping with two-day delivery will lure more shoppers to WalMart.com. Starting July 1, and in the following weeks, you’re going to see some amazing items at great prices kicking in.

Walmart launched ShippingPass last year as a means of competing with Amazon, though it was confined to a small number of cities across the country. It initially offered three-day shipping. In its latest attempt to square off with Amazon, Walmart is expanding ShippingPass, its unlimited two-day shipping program, and offering a free 30-day trial to all U.S. customers.

The ShippingPass pilot program launched last year and offers free shipping on all orders.

Walmart is also planning an Independence Day sale to coincide with the expanded ShippingPass offerings.

Order fresh groceries online with free same-day pickup and load your car.

Walmart wants to deliver groceries to your door and the grocery giant is getting some help from Uber and Lyft. Walmart will use Uber and Lyft driver for “last-mile” deliveries. When an online order comes through, Walmart employees will gather the products and a Uber or Lyft driver will complete the delivery, which will cost customers an extra $7 to $10.
