pedal/shoe compatibility

First off, I'm new to cycling and to the forum, and I don't know what the different type of pedals, cleats and shoes are. I am reading that certain shoes will only accept certain cleats. (I hope I am explaining this right)

Anyway, I got some entry level shoes that "accepts SPD-style cleats (Shimano SPD, Time ATAC, Eggbeater, etc)" . I ordered a bike, which I have not received yet, but the pedal description says "Wellgo double sided clipless with cleats and reflectors".

My question, are these compatible? If not, am I better off returning my unused shoes and get some that are compatible? OR Get different pedals?

Most likely they are compatible. Wellgo uses a cleat called 98A and it works perfectly with Shimano SPD pedals. These types of cleats have 2 screws and 99% of MTB shoes are SPD type.
