The sports nutrition industry has seen a massive increase in competition that has left gross margins shrink. This competition has created a race to the bottom for retail prices, devaluing your products and brand price integrity. The retail landscape has shifted to e-commerce with sites like Amazon and Google, only adding to the situation.
Are you sick of having to play this pricing game and wasting company resources to monitor the hundreds of e-commerce sites? Protect your brand equity by keeping prices where they should be.
PricePlow can help — we have over a decade of experience in the industry and understand the challenges that brands face on a daily basis. We’ve used this experience to create an industry-disrupting software solution that will allow you to manage your price integrity through a daily or weekly report. No more having to waste employee time or assets to search the web each day for violators of your MAP.

Example MAP Price Alerts
Our system is simple, with both daily alerts and weekly (or monthly) alerts:
Daily Alerts: New MAP Violations Found in the past 24 hours
These violations are sent each day, with direct links to the product page in violation. PricePlow checks one last time before sending the alert, guaranteeing 99% accuracy.
Weekly (or Monthly) Alerts: Current MAP Violations that haven’t been fixed yet
You may choose to get this email on a weekly or monthly basis. It contains an Excel file attachment for your convenience:
The list of current violators also comes with a spreadsheet for easier viewing of larger reports, sorted by store:
In addition to the email reports, the data may also be delivered to your data warehouse through a protocol such as FTP, SCP, rsync, etc.
Each day, our system checks all stores for new product pages. If there is a new listing for your brand that hasn’t been seen before, PricePlow merges it into the system and begins monitoring it.
We also monitor the health of our system daily. The system re-checks pages with errors, and re-tries stores that are temporarily down.
Build Relationships with Retailers
By nature, MAP enforcement increases communication between the brands and the retailers. Our customers have found that this not only leads to more trusting relationships, but it also generates increased sales since the brands can use this time to discuss new SKUs and sales opportunities with the stores.
