If you are new to shopping for a brand protection provider, it might be confusing to tell the difference between companies. It might sound like everybody offers the same type of monitoring. This could not be further from the truth.
One of the most important things you can look for in a monitoring software is frequency of crawling data. Due to the fast-changing nature of online marketplaces, the less often a marketplace is crawled, the slower you will know what is actually happening in real-time. Price cascading in particular requires hourly crawls in order to catch the authorized channels who violated MAP first. The less frequent the crawling, the more information that is missed.
First, we onboard all of your brand’s products into our database. During this process we match each ASIN or UPC with the correct marketplace URL and MAP price. This process can take 1-2 weeks depending on the amount of work involved.
Next, we begin monitoring your listings 24/7/365 for preliminary data. This is the data we will use to get the first glance at your marketplace.
Thirdly, we identify and document any and all pricing policy violators. This will include all authorized and unauthorized sellers present on your product's listings
Finally, we provide access to a dashboard with all your brand's violation data. This dashboard is available 24/7, updates multiple times a day, and comes with unlimited users.
Amazon Vendor Central and Target both dropped below MAP on your product. When confronted, both marketplaces blames the other. Who was the first mover that started the price cascade?
With vigilant hourly monitoring, Brand Alignment catches the culprit with a timestamped screenshot. Armed with this information, the brand confidently approaches the violator and disputes the chargebacks. In some cases, brands choose to discontinue relationships with consistent violators.
We understand that some people may not have the time to login to the dashboard everyday to check for violations. That is why we offer daily MAP, UPP, and Price Cascading alerts via email. These emails can be customized to arrive weekly, daily, hourly, or even real-time.
In order to prepare brands with the evidence that may be required to approach violating authorized sellers, Brand Alignment takes screenshots of all authorized channels who violate MAP or UPP policies. These screenshots will come with timestamps and be available in your dashboard along with any corresponding data.
Brand Alignment is not limited to only the top marketplaces. We monitor UPCs across hundreds of marketplaces and notify you of violations. This information includes breakdowns by marketplace or product. If you choose to sign up for our enforcement service, the dashboard also tracks removals across all sites.
