Boomerang Effect of Conditional Promotions in Shopping Cart Abandonments

We find that shoppers’ propensity to abandon shopping carts in response to unfulfilled conditional promotions is influenced by the interaction of promotion framing and distance-to-threshold. We found support for perceived fairness (perceived attractiveness) of the promotional offer as a driver of abandonment intention when distance-to-threshold is relatively far (close).
