Minimum Advertised Pricing Policy
Effective January 1, 2015, a Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) on all Empire
Art Direct (EAD) products will be in effect. International accounts must
reflect pricing as translated into their local currency.
Empire Art Direct has been building a brand of strong recognition and a
high perceived value since 2007. 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 Empire Art Direct 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 Empire Art Direct agrees to allow your company
to sell its products, you will need to agree and abide by the following requirements
The MAP policy shall work under the following guidelines:
- The Minimum
Advertised Price for any EAD product shall not be less than 20% below the
current Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) which is formulated to be
2.5 times our wholesale dealer cost. MAP pricing is established by EAD and may
be adjusted by EAD at its sole discretion.
- The MAP policy
applies to all advertisements of EAD 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
- The MAP policy is
not applicable to: 1) Any in-store advertising that is displayed only in the store
and not distributed to any customer(s) outside of their store. 2) Any email newsletters sent to your customer database.
- The inclusion in
advertising of free or discounted products (whether made by EAD 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.
- 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.
- 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. EAD dealers remain free to sell these products at any
price they choose.
- MAP does not
establish maximum advertised prices. All dealers and sales representatives may
offer EAD products at any price in excess of the MAP.
- EAD's MAP policy
does not in any way limit the ability of any dealer to advertise that “they
have the lowest prices” or, they “will meet or beat any competitors price”,
that consumers should “call for a price” or phrases of similar import as long
as the price advertised or listed for the products is not less than MAP.
- Dealer agrees to hold all trademarks and
copyrights of Empire Art Direct as the property of Empire Art Direct and use advertising materials provided by Empire Art
Direct in an authorized
- Intentional or repeated failure to abide by
this policy will result in termination
of dealership. EAD does not intend to do business with dealers who degrade the
image of EAD and its products. It is EAD’s sole discretion whether or not to
provide prior notice or issue warnings before taking any action under this
- 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
- Negotiated Contracts: From
time to time it may be explicitly approved by Empire Art Direct in writing to
sell certain EAD products at below MAP pricing. The discount amount and length of
time will be determined at the time of this approved promotion by Empire Art
may run a sale from time to time and in such case the MAP will be the same as
the sale price on those particular items and on those particular dates. EAD
will send out a notice in advance with details of the special.
- Sales representatives of EAD products will supply a copy of the EAD MAP
policy to any new or existing reseller to be filled out, acknowledged and
returned to EAD. This form shall be signed and returned to EAD and in doing so,
will bind the reseller to abide by the MAP and reseller requirements spelled
out in this document.
