The first step to MAP enforcement is creating an account. We’ll need some some basic information from you to confirm your business identity. Once verification is complete, you’ll be able to connect MAP Authority to your Amazon Seller Central account to start the catalog sync process.
Once verified and connected, you’ll need to upload your product catalog into MAP Authority. Users with a Seller Central account can easily sync their product catalog. Brands not using Seller Central can manually import their catalog.
Once your product catalog is loaded into MapAuthority, monitoring automatically begins for all SKUs. Monitoring provides a detailed look at which sellers are compliant and which ones are not. Our in-depth reports will show you exactly when a seller has violated your MAP policy for any ASIN in your catalog, and their contact info will be pulled from Amazon for you to reach out if necessary.
With your product catalog loaded, you’re one step closer to MAP enforcement. The next step is to create your MAP agreements. Just select the products to be included in an agreement and enter your minimum advertised price for each SKU.
Now that your MAP agreement has been created, you need to get it in the hands of your retailers. Invite retailers to join MAP Authority and review your MAP pricing agreement. They’ll be sent an email including enrollment instructions along with your MAP agreement.
Once your retailers receive the MAP Authority invitation, they're able to review and accept your agreement. You’ll be notified about the status of the MAP agreement, and you always have the ability to view its status on your dashboard.
After retailer acceptance, your MAP policy will be fully enforced with your Amazon retailers. Although we’ll send boring notifications of MAP violation attempts, your prices will never go below your MAP price on Amazon. It's patent pending magic.
