Fanvil MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) Policy


As an expert supplier of IP communication devices, Fanvil has made significant investments in its brand image— emphasizing both the high quality and performance of its IP communication products. In order to build and maintain integrity for Fanvil brand equity by emphasizing the value and quality of Fanvil’s products through advertising and marketing. Fanvil believes that its products should be advertised at prices that reflect the value of those products and the Fanvil brand, and established the Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) for all Fanvil products.

Fanvil expects all distributors and retailers (collectively “resellers”), including those selling over the Internet, to maintain its high standards and brand image for these product lines. Fanvil further expects all resellers to take the time to learn about and properly promote its products, so resellers can properly serve their customers.

This MAP policy is designed to protect distributor/reseller margins so that desirable pre-sales and post-sales services and infrastructure can be provided by our channel partners; and support the Fanvil brand as a premium offering.
