How to configure MAP pricing to meet manufacturer requirements

Created by Ezra Weinstein, Modified on Mon, 12 Sep 2022 at 02:40 PM by Hannah Harris

The following video walks through MAP pricing in coreFORCE:


Since that video was done, a few new options have been added to MAP pricing to satisfy manufacturer's detailed requirements:  


  • [None] - default MAP behavior: MAP price is displayed with a button that says "Add to cart for best price"
  • Strict MAP - as in the video, email for best price (customers can also skip the Email for quote and just add to cart at the MAP price)
  • Strict MAP with code - same as email for price, except the customer gets a unique promotional code they have to enter at checkout. This is to satisfy manufacturers who require the discount to be applied at the final stage of checkout.
    * For the two email options, coreFORCE adds a random delay before sending the customer the email (5-10 minutes).  Some manufacturers do not allow automatic emails with the price, so the delay is to satisfy them.
  • Call for price - the only way to get the real price is to call you.
  • MAP is minimum price - sell the product at the MAP price.  No further discounts offered.
  • Ignore MAP - sell the product based on the pricing structure without regard to MAP at all.  Only use this if you are sure that this is ok with the manufacturer.
