If it means making money, you can probably assume that Ryan Pineda has tried it. Whether it be accounting or flipping houses, he’s probably done it and then made a course about it.

Ryan’s latest business venture is called Lunar Ecom, which offers done-for-you Walmart and Amazon stores. Ryan admits though: “If you’ve been dropshipping through Walmart these past few months, then you know it has not been pretty.”

Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

“Stores are getting suspended and terminated like crazy,” he goes on. “You don’t have to look any further than Reddit or YouTube to see all of the countless complaints. So what’s going on in the ecommerce industry, and specifically, Walmart? Well, a lot of people are moving from Amazon over to Walmart automation, for a number of reasons.

For one, you can start scaling Walmart stores right away, unlike Amazon. Two, the profit margins are higher. And three, risk of account suspension is lower.”

Well, that statement was partially true. Unfortunately, it looks like point 3 regarding Walmart didn’t work out as planned. The thing is, Walmart was allowing third party selling over the course of the last year. And it’s true, most of that time it did have a very low suspension rate. In fact, at that time a lot of Ryan’s clients had their Walmart stores up, running, and profiting.

And then Walmart started suspending the stores.

Thankfully the Lunar Ecom team fought to unsuspend the stores, and most of them were. Unfortunately everyone was pretty shaken up and they were setback up to two months. Then Walmart started suspending again for a second time. It didn’t make any sense because the suspended stores were brand new and not even generating money yet.

AKA nothing had even been done to violate Walmarts guidelines. Even worse, Walmart never even gave a reason why they suspended so many of the stores.

Lunar Ecom once again tried to troubleshoot using the same methods they had with the first round of suspensions. Unfortunately, however, instead of Walmart reinstating the stores they closed ALL of them.

Ouch. And so at this point we started to get really concerned because who knows what Walmart’s gonna do next,” Ryan says. “Well as it turns out, a few weeks later, they just kept terminating new stores, whether they were selling or not (no suspensions, no warnings, nothing).”

“And honestly, if it was just my company, I would’ve probably felt better about it, because it would of told me that we’re doing something wrong and then we can fix it. But that wasn’t the case. It was companies (meaning stores/accounts) all over.

All my friends in the industry were seeing the same thing, and it was just a really crappy situation for everyone involved. And so we made the decision to just turn off all of our active Walmart stores because at this point, it just seems like Walmart is going to terminate everything at some point.”

So you’re probably wondering how Lunar Ecom handled all of their customers who paid for the Walmart dropshipping store. Don’t worry, they didn’t leave them hanging. Lunar Ecom swapped them all back to Amazon. Maybe in the future they’ll give Walmart another try.

And while Lunar Ecom did the best they could for their clients, I personally wouldn’t want to dabble in automated ecom stores. Between the suspensions, expensive cost, and low margins? I’ll pass.
