Consumer Responses Towards Limited-Time Vs. Limited-Quantity Scarcity Messages in Price Promotions

This study investigates the relative effects of limited-time versus limited-quantity scarcity messages in price promotions on consumers’ behavioral intentions and brand evaluations, and examines possible internal mechanisms. The moderating effects of product types and consumer regulatory focus are also explored. The findings contribute to restricted promotion research and practices.
