Why Brand Alignment Is The Best In The Industry.
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 enforcement. This could not be further from the truth.
No competitor even comes close to our level of MAP enforcement.
Why is our approach so effective? Because we wipe out the vast majority of MAP violators in one swoop by targeting EVERY seller with cease & desist letters. We then take care of any remaining stubborn sellers with advanced proprietary techniques.
We’ve achieved permanent results for brands ranging from small healthcare to billion-dollar consumer electronics - and we’d love for your brand to be our next success story.
Our Simple & Easy Internet-Wide MAP Enforcement Process
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. We will provide you with a real-time dashboard that displays the results.
Thirdly, we start sending three rounds of Cease & Desist letters using a Graduated Enforcement System that is proven to have an extremely high success rate. Sellers are contacted with 24 hours of appearing on monitored listing.
Finally, for all remaining sellers we begin Open-Source Intelligence techniques to identify their personal information and the supply chain in which they acquired the product. During this phase we work closely with the brand to create a Do Not Sell list and offer suggestions for preventing future grey market sales.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Does It Take to Get Started?
Our on-boarding period takes between 1-2 weeks depending on the amount of custom work required.
I Have More of a Counterfeit Problem Than a Grey Market Problem. Can You Help?
Currently, our specialty is grey market sales. If you are dealing primarily with counterfeits or knockoffs, we recommend speaking to a IP Takedown service instead. If you are interested in both, our services compliment IP Takedown software very well.
Do You Work With Third Party Vendors or Only Directly With Brands?
In the past we worked with 3rd party vendors, however due to liability concerns we now only work directly with brands. We do offer a referral commission so please feel free to contact us if a brand you work with needs help with brand protection.
What Are Your Enforcement Rates on Other Marketplaces Besides Amazon?
We do not offer removal guarantees for other marketplaces, however it is not uncommon to see removal rates on Walmart or Rakuten in the range of 50%-90%
My Grey Market Problem Extends Outside the USA. What Can You Offer?
We LOVE investigating international grey market trade. Contact us about the countries you would like to monitor and enforce, and we will be glad to help.
I Had a Bad Experience With My Last Brand Protection Provider, Why Will You Be Any Different?
We understand your concerns. We are aware of many unhappy brands who have worked in the past with our competitors.
We can talk all day about how we are different, but instead we would like to show you with our Brand Alignment Enforcement Guarantee. Contact us to learn more.
