Online Retailing Is Here to Stay - the Effects of Product-Context Levels on Consumer Decision Making.

We investigate the role of context (with or without) in online product presentations and its influence on the consumer’s value perception. High context presentations generate increased value through increased mental imagery. The level of involvement and the consumer’s implicit theory moderate the relationship. Our results help improving online shopping experiences.
