MAP Agreement

Twisted Wares® Minimum Advertised Pricing Agreement

Twisted Wares® actively supports the advertising and promotion of its products by its group of stores, online shops, and sales representatives. Twisted Wares® enforces a Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) on all Twisted Wares® products. We have implemented this MAP policy to protect the brands strong reputation for providing customers with high quality products, and to preserve our loyal dealers’ ability to compete in the marketplace without having their prices undercut by online sales.

The Twisted WaresTM MAP policy is:

  1. The MAP pricing for all Twisted Wares® products will be advertised for sale for no less than double the wholesale cost of the products minus one penny.

  2. MAP policy applies to all advertisements of Twisted Wares® products in any and all media, including but not limited to flyers, newspapers, magazines, email newsletters, Internet, and public signage.

  3. The MAP policy is not applicable to any in-store advertising that is displayed only in the store and not distributed to any customer(s).

  4. Intentional or repeated failure to adhere to the MAP policy shall result in immediate termination of the dealer rights to market and sell Twisted Wares® products.

  5. If pricing is displayed, any strike-through or other alteration of the Minimum Advertised Price is prohibited.

  6. MAP applies only to advertised prices and does not apply to the price at which the products are actually sold. Twisted Wares® dealers and sales representatives are allowed to sell for any price they choose within their retail location or over the phone.

  7. MAP does not establish a maximum advertised price.

  8. The Twisted Wares® and Hang Tight Towel® trademarks remain the property of Twisted Wares® and shall only be used appropriately or as directed and shall not misconstrue its affiliation with Twisted Wares® in any way.

  9. Twisted Wares® may not be sold, advertised, or distributed via Amazon, or any other 3rd party seller, unless specific permission is granted in writing.

  10. MAP policy is established by Twisted Wares® and may be adjusted to our sole discretion when necessary.
