Abstract

This article explores the influence of seemingly incidental numbers on willingness to pay as a function of internal reference price strength. Four experiments suggest that anchoring effects occur only when consumers hold weak internal reference prices for the target product. For products with strong internal reference prices, anchoring occurs if the numerical value is part of the product identity and resembles a price.
