Investopedia explains 'Advance Canvass'


Marketing representatives who are advance canvassers may offer additional incentives to their retailers for favored product placement and for exceeding sales targets for the new product. The company behind the new product needs to ensure not only that it has sufficient quantities in stock to satisfy initial demand, but also that the product performance lives up to the high expectations created by advance canvassing.
