P6. Marginal Cost Consideration

A large-scale study (N=12,003) examines how price presentation influences choice. Six experimental conditions present absolute and marginal prices (across 30 price levels) for a flight selection task. Highlighting savings accruing from choosing the lower price option results in greater choice share for the higher priced option, particularly as prices increase.
