Aquor Unilateral Pricing Policy
In an effort to retain brand value and a healthy distribution channel, Aquor Water Systems has implemented a Retail Unilateral Pricing Policy.
Adhering to the UPP is a way for all retailers to feel confident that the manufacturer has their back, and allows
them to maintain healthy margins while continuing to sell high-quality, innovative products.
The Retail Unilateral Pricing Policy (UPP) sets a Minimum Retail Price (MRP) for all Aquor products. This policy is
designed to prevent price slashing among Aquor retailers, enabling them to remain profitable in this highly
competitive business environment. In order to remain in good standing, Aquor Resellers must advertise and sell all
products at, or above, the MRP.
Aquor will count on each distributor to administer and enforce the UPP. Violations or refusal to participate in the
Aquor UPP could result in loss of:
• Rights to use Aquor intellectual properties
• Ability to purchase Aquor products
A reseller constitutes any merchant that sells to consumers. This includes, but is not limited to: retailers, online
dealers, warehouse distributors, auction sellers, or auction sites. A reseller is also considered to be anyone that
uses Aquor’s trademarks in connection with the advertisement, offering for sale, or sale of Aquor goods, whether
such use is with or without Aquor’s consent.
Furthermore, warehouse distributors (WD) are responsible for monitoring to whom they sell to and ensuring that
the purchasing party is not violating the MRP. Failure to do so may result in penalties to both the reseller and the
A violation is defined as the sale or advertising of an Aquor product(s):

• Which are bundled together at a price below the aggregated MRP of the individual items
• On a website with ambiguous pricing such as: “See Price in Cart”, “Make Offer”, “bid”, rebate funds,
customer specific funds, or “Instant Message me for pricing”
Aquor Water Systems reserves the right to run National Promotions of their products. Aquor will provide to
resellers the promotional information, with adequate timing, to ensure continued compliance with the pricing
policy. Aquor encourages resellers to utilize the national promotions to their advantage while providing a high
level of customer service to the end user.
Aquor encourages retail promotions and sales of our products. All retail promotions must be approved by Aquor in
writing 30 days prior. If the retail promotions do not meet the requirements of the UPP, they will be in violation,
subject to enforcement and penalties.
