Description of Psychological Pricing. Explanation.


Definition Psychological Pricing. Description.

Psychological Pricing is a market-based approach to pricing wherein prices are set to a level that is perceived as attractive by consumers. This method is designed to encourage purchases that are based on emotional rather than rational responses. For example to a relative high level to promote the idea of value and status for consumers that believe price is an indicator of quality. Or just below a round figure (popular price points) to for example $19.99 to suggest the price is in a lower range than the consumer expected. Also special promotions can be used such as 3 for the price of 2 to attract consumers looking for a bargain.
