Do the Crime, Always Do the Time? Insights Into Consumer-To-Consumer Punishment Decisions

The present research examines consumers’ reactions toward other consumers who violate consumption norms by identifying the boundaries to consumer punishment. We demonstrate that the behavior of other parties, adversities experienced by the norm violator, and personal attributes possessed by the norm violator can contribute to the mitigation of punishment.
