An Examination of Consumers’ Long-Term Social Preferences Under Elective Pricing

We provide descriptive evidence by analyzing a panel dataset that tracks elective contributions of 57,196 customers for five years from an online retailer. Customers choose to make above-the-minimum contributions, but their payments slowly decline with each subsequent purchases. Stingier consumers contribute cumulatively more to the firm than generous consumers.
