Abstract

This article compares the effects of three pricing tactics—temporal reframing of prices (TRP), measure-based unit pricing (UP), and usage-based UP—on various consumer perceptions. Although these tactics are similar as they all reframe retail prices to a smaller amount, dissimilarity also exists as the respective units used for calculating these reframed prices differ. A laboratory experiment was performed to draw comparisons among the three types in a context of print advertisement. The results suggest that usage-based UP provided the most beneficial information for consumers; however, the differences between usage-based UP and TRP were not substantial.
