Shifting Mindset in Consumer Elective Pricing

We examine the role of mindset in consumer elective pricing (CEP). In three field experiments, we change the wording of a CEP offer to invoke self versus other-regarding mindsets. Our data, from both non-profit and for-profit settings, suggest that offers that make self-interested motivations less salient consistently increase payments.
