You can make a fake Walmart receipt, however, if you lost your copy, you can contact the Walmart location where you made your purchases for a replacement receipt, call the hotline or use Walmart’s receipt lookup if you paid with a debit or credit card.

How to make a fake Walmart receipt

This article guides you only to generate phony Walmart receipts for pranks and not for false return of items.

Some customers try to use fake Walmart receipts for returns, and while some are genuine, others use them to defraud Walmart. This begs the question, “Where do you belong? To defraud or to return an item you bought after losing your original Walmart receipt?”

Is using a fake Walmart receipt at Walmart illegal? Yes, it is perfectly illegal, and you can take an example from the 3 in jail for attempted theft in Hanford with fake Walmart receipts. One of the culprits is a repeat offender in jail who tries to trick Walmart employees and get away with a TV.

What is Walmart’s Return Policy?

Before you make that doctored Walmart receipt, know Walmart’s return policy. Walmart allows up to 90 days after purchase to exchange or return an item you purchased, except it is part of their exceptions. In the exceptions, some items qualify for 14, 30, and 60 days return only. Refer to Walmart’s website to learn everything about their return policy exceptions. You can return items for free by mail, in-store, or via a scheduled pickup from your home.

How a Walmart Receipt Works and How a Fake Can Be

Before you make a fake Walmart receipt, understand how Walmart’s receipt works, its anatomy. The header of Walmart’s receipt information depends on the store. Some Walmart stores list the name and phone number of the manager while others use the store’s physical address on the receipt.

Example of Walmart receipt

Sample of Walmart Receipt

When you create a fake Walmart receipt, these numbers (ST#, OP#, TE#, and TR#) are randomly generated.

  • ST# – Walmart store number.
  • OP# – Cashier number, also called operator number.
  • TE# – Register number.
  • TR# – The register’s transaction number.
  • TC# – Barcode (if you return an item to Walmart, they will scan this barcode for verification.

A fake Walmart receipt generator will list items on the receipt just like on the authentic Walmart receipt so that they are scanned at the time of purchase. On the right of the item price of a doctored Walmart receipt, you might see N, X, O, or T, etc. which means the taxing type of the item. See the taxing types below:

  • N: Nontaxable item
  • X: Taxable item
  • O: Sale item (nontaxable)
  • T: Sale item (taxable)
  • H: HSA (Health Spending Account) eligible item
  • F: Food item (eligible for Food Stamps)
  • K: Cashier manually keyed enter (if it did not scan properly)

Your generated Walmart receipt will also contain a QR code, an encoded URL for checking the receipt online.

What Receipt Does Walmart Use?

A Walmart receipt is printed from a POS (point-of-sale) system using a thermal printer. The thermal receipt paper is produced in rolls and inserted into the receipt printer. The typical widths of these receipts are 58mm (2.283 inches) or 80mm (3.15 inches). Walmart also uses a custom thermal receipt paper that has a pre-printed image for security purposes.

How to Print Your Fake Walmart Receipt

There are many ways you can print your Walmart-styled receipt, but most stores use thermal printing technology for receipt printing.

In thermal receipt printing, a heat-sensitive thermal paper goes through a heating element in the printer. The heated receipt paper then receives letters or image(s). Other printing formats include laser, dot-matrix, or inkjet printing. However, stores such as Walmart prefer thermal receipt printers for their speed, quietness, and energy efficiency.

Can you still make fake online receipts and make returns at Walmart?

You can make fake online receipts for returns at Walmart. Unfortunately, there is no satisfactory answer for this question, however, here is a technical response. Reports claim that Walmart POS frontends use the IBM running a proprietary OS based on SUSE Enterprise Linux. Walmart handles caching through regional CICS transaction servers running on the HTTP protocol. The APIs for external security validation systems are said to be available when you build HTTP 1.1 GET requests. This is all you should know – it is a bit technical, perhaps only hackers should be reading this section of my guide.

How often does Walmart’s cache update the inventory? Is it in real-time or in batches? Can you use Walmart’s sandbox API, hack some fake Walmart receipt template or update it? It all depends on how smart you are and how often Walmart updates their inventory or review it for returns. You will then have to create a fake receipt that reflects the current inventory.

Alternatively, you can use an RFID jammer during the receipt scan and claim to be in a hurry while walking out. Unfortunately, I do not know how Walmart’s return system works, the data that they manipulate at the POS, and what changes occur during original returns.

In essence, it is not easy to make fake online receipts and make returns at Walmart unless your transaction ID or barcode is authentic, and you merely missed your original receipt. Do not think of defrauding Walmart in this manner, except you can bypass their receipt lookup system.


Can you make Walmart receipts?

You can make a Walmart receipt for Walmart purchases using online services such as ExpressExpense, nuTemplates, and Bills99. These Walmart template generators allow you to add itemized items, Walmart logo, fake barcode, and custom text to your Walmart receipt.

Does Walmart receipt lookup work?

Walmart receipt lookup works. When you present a fake Walmart receipt, the cashier will do a receipt lookup using the purchase history and reference number.

Can a Walmart receipt be modified?

You can modify a Walmart receipt if you wanted, however, you have to get the barcode correctly. Otherwise, when Walmart scans the barcode, it will not bring up the information. If you lost your Walmart receipt when you fake it to return an item, you have to get the barcode correctly, or it would not work at all. Unfortunately, you will now get unnecessary attention from Walmart’s asset protection associate, which can get you into trouble. They will assume that you planned to steal from Walmart.

What is the font used on receipts?

Helvetica. Reports show that Walmart uses Helvetica font for their receipt. Most online generator tools already use pre-installed fonts for your fake Walmart receipt. You will only need this font type if you are creating your fake Walmart receipt with Photoshop, Corel Draw, or any photo editing tool.

Final Thoughts

Again, this article only shows you how to make a fake Walmart receipt for pranks. If you intend to steal from Walmart, you will be busted during the receipt lookup.

Also, there is a consequence if you get caught stealing at Walmart. You may be pardoned on your first attempt, but this does not mean you should steal from Walmart. Walmart typically shifts the loss to consumers – the reason item prices surge overnight.

Do not make a fake Walmart receipt for fraud; you will get caught.
