Frequently asked questions

What is MAP monitoring?

Minimum advertised price monitoring is a process of tracking and enforcing a manufacturer's MAP policy that requires retailers and resellers to advertise products at or above a certain lowest price.

Why is MAP required?

Companies need MAP monitoring because oftentimes customers tend to categorize brands according to their prestige or lack thereof - lower prices negatively impact perceived hierarchy in the market. MAP policies protect a brand's reputation and ensure fair competition by keeping advertised prices in check.

How do you implement MAP monitoring?

To implement MAP monitoring, you should:

  • Define the minimum advertised price.

  • Identify the retailers and distributors selling the product.

  • Implement MAP price monitoring tools across relevant distribution channels to ensure MAP compliance.

  • Use tools minimum advertised price tracking software to automate the process. You’ll save time and ensure prices are monitored regularly.

  • Set up a process for addressing MAP violations. The process can involve contacting the retailer or distributor to remind them of the MAP policy. Alternatively, it may require formal legal action.

Can you implement a MAP monitoring system for major e-commerce sites?

The short answer is yes. To make the process easier, our team of experts created the Amazon product data API, Walmart API, Best Buy Scraper, and many more to help you gather public price information from major sites effortlessly.

What are the benefits of MAP monitoring?

For brands, MAP price tracking can help ensure consistent pricing, uphold brand reputation, and fair competition. There are also benefits for the consumer. Knowing an item's true value can help them identify fraudulent products.

What is the difference between MSRP and MAP?

With MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price), the manufacturer recommends a certain product price to the seller. MAP, on the other hand, defines the lowest price at which the product can be advertised, and the seller is obligated to comply. In other words, retailers can choose to apply MSRP according to their preferences but must consistently implement MAP.
