The plactic monoids can be obtained from the tensor product of crystals. Similarly, the hypoplactic monoids can be obtained from the quasi-tensor product of quasi-crystals. In this paper, we present a unified approach to these constructions by expressing them in the context of quasi-crystals. We provide a sufficient condition to obtain a quasi-crystal monoid for the quasi-tensor product from a quasi-crystal monoid for the tensor product. We also establish a sufficient condition for a hypoplactic monoid to be a quotient of the plactic monoid associated to the same seminormal quasi-crystal.
