Cloud 9 Novelties has implemented a Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) policy effective Nov 1, 2018. The objectives are:
To ensure that our dealer-product relationships are consistent and value-based. To maintain the proper positioning of our brands in the marketplace.
MAP policy compliance applies to all internet sales of our branded vendors products sold in North America (including Canada) and internationally, except in countries where such policies are prohibited by law. The MAP policy compliance applies to all Cloud 9 Novelties products offered for resale based on the current retail price published with the approved MAP Pricing.
All approved e-commerce customers are required to conform to the published MAP policy established by Cloud 9 Novelties. You may not ADVERTISE any of the MAP products at a price below the designated MAP price outlined in the published MAP policy. However, this policy does not apply in any way to a reseller’s actual SELLING at set prices.
It is the sole discretion of Cloud 9 Novelties to reserve the right to review a reseller’s compliance with the Cloud 9 Novelties MAP policy. If it is verified a drop shipment or wholesale customer advertises a vendor-branded product below the MAP policy price, they will no longer be eligible to purchase or resell that branded-product line.
Cloud 9 Novelties has worked hard to ensure that all authorized dealers provide retailers and consumers with the advice, service, knowledge, and support necessary to maintain the highest level of customer satisfaction. Cloud 9 Novelties has concluded that certain types of advertising/pricing can affect goodwill and is damaging to the standards and reputation of brands represented under the Cloud 9 Novelties.
The MAP is published in the attached price list categories included but is not limited to:
Sex machines including Sex Machine Pro™ and F-Slider Pro™ Air Touch all seriesPower Touch all series Cloud 9 WandsDual Density Real Touch SeriesSwirl Touch (new release January 2019) G Spot Slim (new release January 2019)
Restricted Marketplaces Requiring Authorization: - This includes all website marketplace channels including Amazon, eBay, Rakuten, Alibaba, Walmart.com, JD.Com, & PricelineAdvertising at prices below the MSRP violates the MAP Policy. Any price with a “strikethrough” treatment is not considered a proper display of the MAP or higher price. Any advertised price, discounts such as coupons, or free accessories resulting in an effective advertised price of Cloud 9 Novelties products at less than the MAP will constitute a violation of the MAP Policy. Amy creation of non-approved ASINS on Amazon or use of non-approved UPC codes also constitutes a violation of our MAP policy.
