Pay Me With Venmo: Effect of Service Providers Decisions to Adopt P2p Payment Methods on Consumer Evaluations

Specifically, when a service provider is adopting Peer-to-Peer payment methods that are associated with warmth, consumers rate such providers as less competent and are less likely to hire them.
