Increasing the Pain of Payment Increases Affiliation and Rapport in Collaborative But Not Competitive Relationships

Could treating someone to a meal using cash (versus ‘plastic’) increase interpersonal connection and rapport? Using both quasi-field and lab experiments, we show experiencing more pain of payment can increase interpersonal connection for spenders and recipients when they are in desirable/collaborative settings but decrease closeness and rapport in undesirable/competitive settings.
