Because We’Re Partners: How Social Values and Relationship Norms Influence Consumer Payments in Pay-What-You-Want Contexts

This research develops and tests a model that explains differences in buyer payments in PWYW contexts. We show that buyers are jointly influenced by their own Social Value Orientation (SVO) and relationship norm salience at the time the pricing decision is made. Both lab and field studies confirm our predictions.
