Is There a Way To View a Walmart Receipt?

If you shop at Walmart, you probably leave with receipts. However, if you can’t find one, you might think it’s gone forever.

Is there a way to view Walmart receipts?

I will answer this question soon. We live in an age where finding receipts using our current technology is a possibility.
Some apps will give you the luxury of finding online receipts for your previous purchases. That way, if you lose the hard copy, you have a digital copy on hand. If applicable, will this apply to returns?

This is another answer that I will soon reveal here. Walmart receipts can come in handy when you need to double-check your purchases or if you need to return something.

But is it possible to find them online and save time trying to find a physical copy? Let’s get to it and answer that question.

Can you really see a Walmart receipt online?

The short answer is yes. You get these digital receipts whether you buy something in-store or online. You will receive this by email. However, there is a catch. You must create an account with Walmart on the website or app.

Alternatively, you can access these receipts on the Walmart app on your phone or tablet.

How to View a Walmart Receipt?

After creating your account, you will want to access the ‘Recent Orders’ option. From there, you’ll want to select the order you’d like to see a receipt for.

Alternatively, you can view your receipt by punching in the zip code of the store you purchased your items. If you live in a large city with multiple zip codes, you can use Google Maps to find a Walmart in your local area to find the right one.

Next, you’ll want to select a purchase date. If you pay by credit or debit card, you can choose the card you use. Then, you’ll want to enter the last four digits of that card.

Finally, enter the total purchase amount and select the ‘Lookup receipt’ option. To find a Walmart receipt, you’ll need this information.

There may be alternative measures for this. For example, it may ask for a Captcha that you need to enter to prove that you are human and not a bot. This hasn’t happened to me too much, but it’s something to be aware of.

How to add a receipt to the Walmart mobile app?

If you are using the mobile app, you need to:

  • Open the Walmart app
  • Find the three lines in the top left-hand corner and tap on it
  • Scroll down and find the Purchase History option
  • Tap the plus sign that is on the lower right-hand corner
  • Scan the QR code on the physical copy of your receipt so you have an eReceipt version

I bought my items at Walmart with a debit card. Can I see a receipt like this?

Is it possible to find a receipt using my debit card information? There are a couple of ways to do this.
You can use the debit card information you used in the Receipt Search option on the website or app. Secondly, you may want to call the electronics payment hotline and ask for a copy of your receipt.

This will require you to provide your debit or credit card information over the phone. If the purchase is online, you’re better off looking for it online.

What if I lose my Walmart receipt? Can I have another copy?

Personally, I would be adamant about keeping physical copies of every Walmart purchase you have. Especially if it’s in-store shopping.

This is because you never know when you might need to return it. The product may be the wrong size, or color or may not work at all. Also, when you return an item from Walmart, you’ll be asked to have the receipt handy before going to the service desk.
Again, if you’ve lost your receipt, you can access the Walmart hotline to get a copy. Again, any online purchase can be accessed through the website.

The hotline number is 479-277-2643. Before calling this number, it is important that you have the correct information. This includes the store location (including address), date of purchase, and debit/credit card number that was used.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the R on my Walmart receipt mean?

On your Walmart receipt, you’ll see an ‘R’ on your receipt followed by a number representing the tax. For example, 1 would represent a tax on general merchandise.

What about the other letters I see on the receipt (N, F, X, etc.)?

  • Apart from ‘R’, there are other letters that you will also see on the receipt.
  • ‘N’ will represent the items that are non-taxable. Alternatively, the letter ‘O’ may also denote it.
  • ‘X’ will indicate the taxable item. Alternatively, the letter ‘T’ will also denote a taxable item.
  • The letter F stands for food. This also means that it is also a qualifying item for food stamps.

Do you need a photo ID when returning to Walmart?

If you are making a return in-store, you may be required to provide photo identification. This will only happen if searching for the receipt returns no results.

To avoid further frustration, you may want to remember some relevant details such as your credit/debit information and purchase date.


I hope this information has been helpful. If you ever need to find a Walmart receipt, I suggest bookmarking it as a reference. I suggest you use the Walmart app to your advantage.

Scan the physical receipt and create an eReceipt whenever you get the chance. It might just save you time and headaches. In addition, an account must also be created on the Walmart website.

But at the end of the day, it’s best to keep a physical copy of your receipt for your records. Because the last thing you ever want to do is lose them.
