Consumption Opportunity and the Consideration of Consumption-Opportunity Cost

For the first time, the authors propose the concept of consumption opportunity and identify it as a scarce, exclusive, and valuable resource to a consumer. We further demonstrated that when making purchase decisions, the consideration of the cost of consumption opportunity could induce consumers to choose the higher-quality smaller-amount option.
