MAP Monitoring Software

What is it?

By setting the minimum advertised price (MAP), you can make sure that sellers always price your goods reasonably. But how to keep tabs on multiple products and stores? It’s almost impossible to track price tags manually, which is why you need MAP monitoring software.

This is an algorithm-driven tool that scans prices and searches by product name or other parameters like SKU. You can connect an unlimited number of sites and marketplaces and get regularly updated price statistics. If any seller violates your MAP recommendations, you will be immediately notified to prevent wrong pricing from damaging your reputation.
The MAP monitoring solution by Priceva allows you to automate the process of price tracking by connecting to as many online stores as you need. Thanks to our proprietary algorithms and unique approach, the software provides accurate and relevant information. The crawler can be set up to search products by name, SKU and other parameters.

You can configure alerts and reports that will notify you when products change in price. The results can be analyzed in detail thanks to advanced filters. Customize your reports defining which fields you want to be displayed, and set up the price update frequency.

Key features of MAP monitoring

  • Excel reports and API integration
  • Email alerts about changes in prices and MAP violations
  • Monitoring in all currencies and cross-conversion

MAP monitoring by Priceva - comprehensive data

at your fingertips

Prices are critical to 87% of buyers. Very cheap goods are expected to be of poor quality, while more expensive ones repel users and force them to search for alternatives. Hence, too low or too high prices can affect your brand reputation. That’s why manufacturers introduce Minimum Advertised Prices (MAP) for their products. But do sellers follow this recommendation?

ECommerce giants like Amazon are constantly monitoring competitors and the market, and accordingly, they adjust their prices dozens of times every day. The same goes for the websites of major airlines, car rental agencies, hotel reservation sites, and virtual retail portals specializing in everything from books and cosmetics to toys and appliances.

The modern MSRP business world waits for no one. Here you have to be active 24/7 and keep an eye on the market. Fortunately, there’s no need to do it manually - with MAP monitoring, you can automate the process and get notified when sellers violate your pricing guidelines.
MAP tracking software by Priceva allows you to:
  • Get timely pricing data as often as you need (up to every hour);
  • Monitor as many products and websites as you need;
  • Receive email alerts about MAP violations;
  • Structurize pricing data in the form of comprehensive reports;
  • Customize your report fields and export them flawlessly.

You can launch scanning by product name, SKU and certain parameters. The Priceva team will help you with monitoring setup and report customization. Data can be presented in graphic form as well as MAP violation screenshots - make sure all your team members can reap and interpret the information.

With MAP monitoring, you rest assured that sellers stick to optimal prices that won’t affect your brand and perceived product value.
