Minimum Advertised Price (MAP)
Effective September 1, 2016, a Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) on select products will be in effect.
By not adhering to the established Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) a reseller can have a dramatic effect of diminishing or detracting from the perceived value of the B & F System, Inc. brand and its products. The internet, with its worldwide impact, has the possibility to cause great harm to any companies' products, if they are advertised at prices that will eliminate any legitimate retail competition. Our MAP pricing policy is intended for consumers to purchase from other resellers based on loyalty and customer care expectations. Therefore, if the B & F System, Inc. agrees to allow the reseller to sell its products, you will need to agree and abide by the following requirements and restrictions.
1) The MAP policy applies to all advertisements of the B & F System, Inc. products in any and all media, including, but not limited to, flyers, posters, coupons, mailers, inserts, newspapers, magazines, catalogs, mail order catalogs, Internet or similar electronic media, television, radio, and public signage.
2) The MAP policy is not applicable to any in-store advertising that is displayed only in the store and not distributed to any customer(s) outside of their store.
3) The inclusion in advertising of free or discounted products (whether made by the B & F System, Inc. or another manufacturer) with a product covered by the MAP policy would be contrary to the policy if it has the effect of discounting the advertised price of the covered product below the MAP.
4) If pricing is displayed in other than a brick and mortar retail store, any strike-through or other alteration of the Minimum Advertised Price is prohibited.
5) MAP applies only to advertised prices and does not apply to the price at which the products are actually sold or offered for sale to an individual consumer within the dealer's retail location or over the telephone
6) E-Bay and Other Auction Web Sites Policy:
- "Buy it Now" options must be listed at a price equal to MAP or greater.
- For auctions the reserve and/or opening bids must start at MAP without a "Buy it Now" option.
- Best Offer Auctions Are Not Allowed
7) Negotiated Contracts: From time to time it may be explicitly approved by the B & F System, Inc. in writing to sell certain B & F System, Inc. products at below MAP pricing. The discount amount and length of time will be determined at the time of this approved promotion by the B & F System, Inc.
