Love Or Luck? the Effect of Self-Referencing Narratives on Used Product Consumption Behaviors

This research investigates the impact of selling narratives created by sellers on buyers’ purchase behaviors, in the context of second-hand market. Across three experiments, we find that self-focused (love-oriented) narratives drive low purchase intention, but high willingness-to-pay, whereas product-focused (luck-oriented) narrative generates both high purchase intention and willingness-to-pay.
