He said Amazon.com offered the best shopping experience, and he rated the retailer at outperform. Walmart.com, was said to have higher prices than Amazon’s, but had strong customer service and didn’t showed up as well in searches. Target.com meanwhile, had questionable customer service and the company didn’t show up well in searches.

According to Barron’s, the experience left Nemer “pleasantly surprised Walmart.com is making strides” online.
