Will “I” Pay More For “Our” Benefit? Premium-Benefit Trade-Offs in Consumers’ Green Purchase

The results of this study suggest that consumers’ willingness to pay a lower price premium for green products is greater for products having other benefit appeals. However, when the premium is high, consumers' willingness to pay is greater for products having self-benefit appeals. Consumers’ perceived benefits acted as the psychological mechanism explaining this effect.
