What is Minimum Advertised Price?

Minimum Advertised Pricing (MAP) is a common term in business. Essentially, it is the lowest price a merchant can advertise a product via marketing tools, so as to protect manufacturers’ price and brand perception. The rule applies to e-commerce stores as well. Every merchant wants to offer customers the best price, even though it is lower than the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. Understanding that insight, Magento do have the feature to configure MAP.

In this tutorial, steps to configure Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) in Magento 1 and 2 will be instructed.
