Default Effects Under Pay-What-You-Want: Evidence From the Field

Under pay-what-you-want pricing, consumers choose their price. This maximal flexibility in payment provides an excellent environment to investigate effects of choice architecture. Through four archival data sets and two large-scale field experiments, representing 130,000 unique purchases, we find new nuances in the effects of defaults and anchoring on choice.
