Perceived Price Fairness: the Role of Other Marketplace Players
This research attempts to provide new insights on perceived price fairness by considering marketplace settings. In particular, comparisons are drawn between fairness perceptions in a monopoly situation versus under competition. We also consider the effect of the presence of independent channel intermediaries. It is found that a monopolist’s price increase action is deemed fairer than that of a firm in a competitive situation. Additionally, retailers are perceived to be more unfair than manufacturers given a price increase.
