What is MAP?
MAP stands for Minimum Advertised Price. It is minimum price at which a given product can be advertised for sale. An important distinction is that the MAP price does not for example affect an eventual in-store sales price.
Can MAP values be specified on Amazon 3P Listings?
Yes. Amazon’s third-party (3P) marketplace system allows an MSRP price to be configured via the back-end admin system – Seller Central.
This results in the message “add to cart to see price” when a third-party seller has specified a sale price below MSRP/MAP.
Will Amazon Retail (1P) respect MAP Policy?
Certain manufacturers will have negotiated Amazon contracts which include MAP Policy provisions. However, the small print will usually provide wriggle room to cover the situation when another Marketplace or large e-commerce site is clearly violating the MAP price.
