You know Walmart. Founded in Arkansas in 1962, it is now one of the largest retailers in the world. To compete with Amazon, they have introduced a third-party vendor fulfillment program.
Third-party vendors don’t have their products stocked in bricks-and-mortar Walmart stores, only on their website. And third-party sellers manage their own shipping; Walmart doesn’t handle that.
We’re telling you all this because almost all of Walmart’s BTS merch is available only from third-party vendors. So you’ll need to do a touch of due diligence to ensure the third-party vendor you’re buying from is reliable and provides timely shipping.
Walmart itself sells and ships a very limited range of BTS merch, including dolls and facemask. But their website has 49 third-party vendors who offer CD box sets, posters, Tinytan minifigs, BTS official lightsticks, backpacks, photo cards, toques, stickers, face masks, hoodies and books and more.
Founded in 2011, Poshmark is a social commerce marketplace where users in the US, Canada, and Australia can buy and sell new or used clothing, shoes, and accessories. The company is headquartered in Redwood City, California.
On any given day, you can find a selection of hoodies, Mattel BTS dolls, albums, t-shirts, album books and more. Are you looking for the BTS x McDonalds packaging? How about the BTS McDonald’s crew shirt? Poshmark is a great place to check.
Pop In A Box
This Funko Pop! shop is a division of The Hut Group (THG), a British e-com company founded in 2004 with headquarters at Manchester Airport.
In 2017, THG was valued at more than £2.5 billion (CAD 3.1 billion), making it one of the most valuable private companies in the U.K. So despite their airport location, this is no fly-by-night operation. THG runs over 100 international websites, and their sales are primarily outside the U.K.
Pop in a Box’s BTS merch is limited to — you guessed it — Funko Pops! In addition to a full range of official BTS Funko Pop! vinyl, they also carry keychain sizes.
