This MAP Policy applies only to advertised prices. Pricing listed on an internet site is considered an "advertised price" and must adhere to this MAP Policy. Once the pricing is associated with an intent to purchase (added to shopping cart or order), the price becomes the selling price and must adhere to the following: Statements such as "add to basket to see price", "we will match any price", "call for price" or phrases of similar import are acceptable as long as the price advertised or listed for the products is not more than 2% below the MAP price. If pricing is displayed, any strike-through or other alteration of the MAP is prohibited. In addition, discounts applied at checkout to the entire order based on a customer's purchasing history with the Reseller, such as discounts for "frequent shoppers", do not violate this MAP Policy.
