Do Pwyw Labels Affect Internal Reference Prices and Prices Paid?

We investigate the effect of different "Pay What You Want" (PWYW) labels in combination with anonymity on prices paid (PP) and consumers' internal reference prices (IRP). A field experiment shows that PWYW labels affect prices paid and consumers' IRP. Also, the relevance of anonymity differs for different PWYW labels.
