I was trying to purchase something from wallmart by using my paypal account.I had plan to send it to someone living there in USA.After repeated attempt transaction was not completed.All i got was black page. So i contacted their customer service to ask if person living outside USA can purchase items listed on site using paypal and send it to someone living in USA? All i got was a automatic reply which did not answer my question. Frustrated!

Oh talking about Walmart... I was unhappy with it yesterday. I went to Wal-mart to buy diapers yesterday, I had two different manufacture pampers coupon @ two dollars each which I could use it at one time purchase but the cashier didn't let me, she said you cannot use two coupons at one purchase... which was a bunch of crap because I have done that before and the coupons are not duplicate, AND, other chasier has done that for me before, she just scanned it and it went through, the cashier that I encountered yesterday was just mean, she wouldn't even try to scan the coupon... I hate walmart services, if the goods were't cheap there, I definitely won't shop there!

Hi Mermaidivy, I am a cashier and to be honest, you really are not supposed to use more than one coupon on one item. There are some cashiers who will do it just to help out the customer or because they don't know that you aren't supposed to. I have done it at times to help someone out but if my boss found out then I would be reprimanded for sure.

Mermaidivy do you know anything about ordering online?I think walmart require billing and shipping address similar thats why site is not accepting my order. If it is a case i wont be able to purchase stuff from there.

I would imagine/assume you would be able to purchase something from walmart as big as they are all over the united states even if you didnt live there. Its quit weird to me because im a avid walmart shopper and am always there and they are so busy and i go onto there walmart site quit often to and just think that since they are a big company you yourself would be ablet o purchase something even if not living in the united states. I would call again and ask to speak to a supervisor and they might be of better assitance to you.

Hmm... I would think there would be a way you could post back and ask a question like this, and get a better answer. I am not sure if there is as it is a Big American company but personally I think they are shooting themselves in the foot by not. The main issue could be that paypal may not be an acceptable form of purchase there, and so that could be your loop hole as well.

What i have come to know is you can not send gift to someone suing paypal money esp if you are living outside USA.They send products to paypal address only.

Have not tried buying things through wallmart. I think you did not have a good experience.
