Walmart Advice On Nintendo Switch OLED Pre-Order

Without a doubt, Walmart is hardly the only retailer suffering from this situation.

Specifically, GameStop, Best Buy, and other retailers have been struggling to fulfill Nintendo Switch OLED pre-orders.

Although so far none of those have provided the surprising advice Walmart provided to one of its customers in regards to their Nintendo Switch OLED pre-order.

In detail, a Walmart customer posted a conversation with the retailer’s customer care on Reddit.

There, the Walmart customer service representative advised that due to internal processing issues, the customer should cancel its Nintendo Switch OLED pending pre-order.

Ironically, the Redditor added the “Wisdom” flare to this post.

Furthermore, it seems that the main issue is that many pre-orders are still under the “Processing” status.

Other users confirmed the aforementioned Redditor was not alone in this situation.

Furthermore, some other Walmart customers’ orders are not even in the processing stage according to some other complaints.
