Design, Emotions, and Willingness-To-Pay

This research demonstrates how aesthetics increases willingness-to-pay by improving three types of perceived benefits—functional confidence, experiential excitement, and self-expressive pride. Specifically, good aesthetics improves anticipated promotion and prevention emotions of confidence, excitement, and pride. The results from this research show that superior aesthetics leads to greater willingness-to-pay.
