Our Unique Story on how we started Minimum Advertised Price Monitoring

We started as e-commerce sellers and not a software company. We began selling online in the early 90’s, well before any minimum advertised price monitoring policies existed. We grew our business to do over a half million in sales every month. Life was good.

Somewhere around 2003 manufacturers came to us with their MAP pricing policies. We were happy to comply. We were the good guys after all, with a full-time customer service department. We hoped this would lead to greater margins. After all, it is no fun trying to make a living with 1% margins!

Soon we noticed a problem. Our sales were declining. We discovered that our sales stopped for all clients with MAP policies. Here we were expecting greater margins, but instead, we got the exact opposite. This was extremely frustrating, to say the least. We contacted the manufacturers and told them to please police their MAP violators or minimum advertised price enforcement violators better because good guys like us were losing sales to the shady site operators who were sitting around in their underwear, offering no pre or post-sales support. The manufacturers were aware of the problem, but it was very difficult to clean up all the violators.

One day in a fit of anger and frustration David wrote some software to find all the MAP violators out there. He sent the lists to the manufacturers to show them the problem we were facing. The manufacturers were very surprised because they had not known a lot of the violators. They soon started asking for additional copies of reports to help them, which we provided. This soon grew into a side business and the features and capabilities grew and grew.

As entrepreneurs ourselves we discovered we really liked helping companies protect their brands. We connected with the owners of companies who had taken great risks and invested their lives into brands and those depend on minimum advertised price enforcement. They were frustrated that the Internet was destroying the value of their brand. We found we were able to really help and it felt good.

MAP Policy Enforcement and Price Monitoring

We provide customized minimum advertised price (MAP) Enforcement solutions to all our clients because we know every business is different.

We start with a business analysis and a deep understanding of your supply chain and MAP policy goals. Our MAP monitoring or map pricing enforcement, tracking, and enforcement system will help you understand and identify not just the violators but also trends in your supply chain.

Our MAP Policy enforcement team has decades of experience and will automatically enforce MAP on the sellers who violate. We do so through a multi-tiered approach. We use electronic and manual systems as well as phone calls and physical cease and desist letters when necessary.

Because we specialize in the aftermarket industry we know more about the violating dealer’s true identities than anyone else! Not to mention we do the MAP enforcement for some of the largest wholesale distributors in the industry as well.

On the rare occasion when we do not already have a violator’s contact information in our database, we have a seller research system in place. This includes web research, mystery buys, secretary of state business look-ups, etc. We can afford to spend the time and effort required to identify these dealers because if they are trying to violate your MAP policy you can be sure they are also trying to violate one of our other 70+ brands as well while doing map pricing enforcement.

Our holistic approach means your Minimum Advertised Price policy will be enforced consistently and in a timely manner with very little input from you and map violation monitoring too. This will free you up to focus on other business goals.

We provide more than just MAP Enforcement and violator removal but also help you build a healthy relationship with your compliant sellers. Not only do we send thank you emails when they fix, but we also provide you with a list of fully compliant sellers with their contact information so you can reach out to them with promotions, notifications, and marketing materials.

We look forward to working with you and making your minimum advertised price problems go away.
