Manufacturers and suppliers have their own pricing guidelines that you as an online retailer need to adhere to. Often the store price at which you are able to offer a product to your customers is lower than the minimum price that the manufacturer allows you to display onscreen. So how do you communicate this lower price to your customers and sell the product at the price that works best for you?

With the Minimum Advertised Price Magento module, you can now sell your advertised products at the price you want, even if it is considerably lower than the minimum stipulated price. This is an extension that keeps everyone happy: your manufacturer/supplier because you are seen to adhere to their guidelines; your customers, because they get products cheaper; and of course, you happy, as more sales roll in with the lower prices.

How it works

The Minimum Advertised Price Magento extension adds a special “Check Price” button instead of the usual product price. If the price in your store is less than the minimum stipulated price for this product, either no price is displayed or the list price or market price is displayed with a strikethrough just to stress that your price is lower. When a prospective customer clicks the Check Price button, the product is added to the shopping cart, and only then does the actual price you are selling the product at become visible.

Quite simply, the real sale price on your store is not shown on the product page but displayed only after the product is added to the shopping cart.

Not only this, the Minimum Advertised Price module for Magento even allows you to offer some nifty enhancements. For example, when the customer adds such a product to the cart, it won't redirect him to the cart, but will display an AJAX layer enabling him to:

  • Take the product off the cart (this can be done if the customer just wants to check the price and has not yet made a purchase decision)
  • Leave it in the cart and continue shopping or
  • Go to checkout

Features for your customers:

  • Get the best deal — lower than manufacturer-stipulated prices
  • Know how much they save: customers see exactly much they save through the "you save" attribute
  • No compulsion to buy — viewing the lower price does not mean they have to buy it. The product can be taken off the cart after viewing the lower store price
  • Nice user experience: customizable text, buttons and pictures that can be used by the admin serve to enhance the customer's e-shopping experience

Features for you:

Offer lower prices, get more sales
Adds optional 'Minimum Advertised Price' attribute to the product

Great admin capabilities to maximise impact of this feature

  • Fast-loading AJAX layer, with an advanced admin interface for layer configuration
  • Completely configurable & customizable layer text, pictures and buttons
  • "List Price" and "You save" attributes: show your customers the actual list price and how much they save. Transparency sells!
  • Configurable independent category/search/product page view
  • Supports direct HTML embedding
  • Macro fields containing all attributes of the product
  • Ability to include any content that Magento CMS can involve

Great product, but truly fantastic support

Review by Patrick | Mar 3, 2016

I have quite a few custom configurations and settings on my Magento eCommerce site (custom theme, using PHP7, extensive caching, etc). I was initially worried when I tried installing the Minimum Advertised Price module, because it didn't seem to work straight out of the box (I may have messed up the installation process). That said, the support team with aheadWorks are truly top-notch. They respond very quickly to any requests, and are highly professional. They helped me resolve two completely separate issues I was having, and the module now functions very well with my Magento setup. I would definitely not hesitate to buy modules and extensions from this great team of people in the future. Thanks for all your help, and for making a very useful product.

A nice solution for me

Excellent extension. I stopped searching an extension for MAP after founding this. Thank you once again aheadworks!

Must-have for older Magentos

Review by Carlos | Dec 4, 2013

The title tells it all: we are still on an old CE version (something around 1.5), and we needed MAP option for our site bitterly.
Now, with this plugin, we've got it covered, and our customer are more than happy to be getting goods at low price

A satisfied customer

Your search for a MAP option ends here!
The Aw module does all it is supposed to, and on top of this, it looks nice:). Highly recommended!

Works well

Review by Jimmy | Aug 5, 2013

A great solution for anyone who's seeking to overcome the MAP dilemma.
The settings are flexible, we got the exact result we'd been after from this module.

Flexible, Stable, Perfect

Review by James - | Dec 29, 2011

This extension provides the merchant with all the options you need if you have a manufacturer that requires MAP pricing. The AheadWorks team was very supportive with the purchase and I will look to them first whenever I need to improve my store. Buy this extension, you will not regret it.

We have been waiting for this

Review by Flaxton | Nov 23, 2011

We have very strict MAP rules that we must follow for most brands that we carry. The idea behind MAP rules is that the manufacturer can tell you at what price you sell your products; if you do not follow those rules you will not be able to sell their products. But, if you do not advertise that you are selling a product at a certain price, and you have the customer add their product to their cart anything is fair game.
