Willingness to Pay: a Contextualized Method of Valuation

Despite its practical importance, the WTP metric is surprisingly impoverished in its conceptualization and measurement. In this paper, we clarify that consumers’ WTP is best understood as a distributional concept that varies among contexts, comparisons and consumers. We introduce a new methodology to measure WTP: the Contextualized Method of Valuation.
