Question about ungating Crayola

I heard that many have been ungated by buying from Walmart. So I tried buying 10 of the same item (Crayola markers) in Walmart and used it to apply to get approved but unfortunately, I got denied. Amazon said that they cannot accept receipt from Walmart. Has anyone used Walmart to get ungated in Crayola? Thank you in advance for all your help.

I use Walmart online to get ungated multiple time but it did not work for Crayola for me. It works about 25% of the time.

I do know that just because I’m getting ungated that it’s not actual brand permission and it’s possible I’ll get brand IP letters and have to remove my listings. My business model is RA so I never have much inventory of any certain product or brand so I’m not risking a big investment doing it this way.

If you are not buying from an approved wholesaler you are taking a risk, just keep that in mind.
