even price effect

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

The effect on sales of a price ending in an even digit, particularly zeros. In the psychology of pricing linked to purchase, some research suggests that even price endings affect sales favourably. However there is also a view that prices ending in odd numbers, particularly nines ($9.99 rather than $10) have a more favourable effect on buyers than even number prices. See also pricing.
