You Might Not Get What You Ask For: Evidence For and Impact of Non-Wtp Reporting in Willingness-To-Pay Surveys

Despite their simplicity and flexibility, we find that consumers often face difficulties to correctly perform such tasks. Specifically, consumers’ who lack ability and motivation are likely to engage in satisficing behavior, which has negative effects on external validity of measures.
