If any seller lists one of your products below your MAP price, our MAP monitoring tool allows you to track the details of the violation by ASIN and retailer.
While MAP monitoring simply informs you of MAP pricing violations, our MAP enforcement tool makes it impossible for sellers to even list below your MAP price.
MAP enforcement can be a daunting task for brands on Amazon. A significant amount of time and effort is spent price monitoring, contacting retailers violating your MAP pricing, and fielding calls from upset channel partners about your discounted Amazon prices. All the while, you can’t escape the pressure of knowing your brand’s identity is on the line.
The majority of MAP pricing problems stem from listing prices on Amazon. If your Amazon price is different than other e-commerce platforms, it's likely causing conflict with these channel's third-party sellers and their retail brand managers.
A MAP policy is only effective when it's enforced, and your brand's identity is at stake when your products are being sold below your minimum advertised price. Without proper MAP enforcement, this will lead to brand erosion over time.
Constantly monitoring your MAP pricing is a tedious and time intensive task, and patrolling the web and contacting retailers isn’t always the most efficient use of your time.
