Its one of Canada’s most trusted marketplaces. And its also one of the hardest to access as a seller – we’re talking about

EBay and Amazon can give anyone a start in e-commerce. In fact, each have millions of sellers registered that mostly compete on the same items.

But many consumers EBay is for used or damaged goods. Others are tired of the long delivery times when they use Amazon and a Chinese vendor. What if there was a trusted platform for new products with great delivery times? Someplace where sellers where vetted before they ever appeared?

There is – its on

Walmart’s online platform is an invitation only service. You must be invited to sell. You must offer amazing customer service. You must offer same day shipping. And you must comply with over 40 pages of rules – including Walmart specific mandatory training courses.

But the rewards are little competition – and loyal customers.

What if you need your product on but can’t meet all the criteria? Or… can’t even get invited. Fear not – 83 North can help.

Businesses using 83 North’s fulfillment service can chose to have us list their products on for them. There is no trouble and no need to update your entire system. Simply stock you product in one of our warehouses, provide listing information and we will fulfill your Walmart orders to their standards.

Will selling on lead to being stocked in Walmart stores? We can’t make any promises – but being able to show solid online sales on the Walmart platform certainly won’t hurt your chances of being selected to sell at retail with the giant.

Do you want to get your product into our fulfillment center so you can start seeing the benefits of listing? Call Bill at 204-734-6044 and we’ll get you started on the path to being seen on Walmart’s website.

Over the past few weeks, the price of Bitcoin has fallen. But almost everyday the phone rings with someone looking for a mining opportunity here in Manitoba. Why are they still looking even though the price is down? Because Manitoba is affordable for Bitcoin.

We generally offer two rates for mining for anyone with more than just one or two machines. In the winter when cooling costs less we charge eight cents per kilowatt hour of electricity used. In summer, that becomes ten cents.

Both prices are all inclusive – there are no setup fees and no other charges. We include space, cabling, racks and internet service. We also include initial setup, ongoing monitoring and basic change service.

It is possible to find companies in the USA offering service for less than eight cents – but its important to remember they are priced in USD, not CAD. With current exchange rates you need to find mining for less than six cents USD to compete with ours. Most of those mining companies also require large upfront payments and charge additional fees.

We offer consulting for those who want to roll their own mining operation or we can simply host your miners in our existing facilities. Head on over to to learn more about what we offer for cryptocurrency services.
