Improving Customer Satisfaction Online Through Valence Matching

Consumers often make unenjoyable decisions, like settling for low-quality products from budget constraints or selecting a retirement plan to pay into. However, framing these negative decisions as rejections (vs. choices) increases participants’ satisfaction and subsequent enjoyment. E-commerce’s flexible and dynamic environment is especially conducive to implementing this effect.
