Minimum Advertised Pricing (MAP) Rules

UPDATED January 19th, 2015

MAP violations incur immediate dealer account suspension!


Map Violations:

Redcat Racing takes MAP guidelines very seriously and reviews online dealer websites and auction sites to ensure rules compliance. If a violation is found, your dealer account will be suspended until the violation if fixed. If your dealer account continues to have MAP violations, Redcat reserves the right to delay account reactivation until further notice and in some cases, your account could be suspended indefinitely.


Redcat Racing has updated our MAP rules. This policy supersedes all previous policies and must be followed by all dealers, wholesalers, resellers and those that advertise Redcat products on any website, publication, newspaper or other media.


Redcat Racing provides MAP requirements for each of our RTR products. Redcat does not provide MAP requirements for spare/replacement parts, and has no restrictions on what our wholesale partners advertise these items for.


Redcat Racing offers one level of MAP. Previously, there were 2 pricing levels which has been changed in order to streamline the pricing of all Redcat vehicles.


Specific MAP guidelines for website, online listings & Auctions with BUY IT NOW;

Any advertised selling price for the RTR vehicle must be MAP pricing or higher.


You may offer free shipping and/or free accessories with purchase, as long as MAP pricing for the vehicle remains in effect. For example: A Volcano S30 with Free Starter Kit and Free Shipping must have a selling price of at least current MAP for Volcano S30.


Specific MAP guidelines AUCTION STYLE LISTINGS:

You can list an auction starting below MAP as long it is traditional auction style listing WITHOUT the Buy It Now Option.


You can start the auction at any price you want and therefore run the risk of the auction selling below your wholesale cost.


If you choose to put a reserve on the auction, the reserve price must be set at MAP or higher.
