If you have previously connected an Amazon, eBay or Google account using Channel Cloud and are wondering why you didn't have to retrieve, copy and paste clientID and secrets to connect those channels, it is because they support a more streamlined method of authentication via their API.  Walmart does not yet have this feature and hence there is requirement for the manual steps above.  As soon Walmart supports easier authentication, Channel Cloud will support it!
