Anchoring and transaction utility: evidence from on-line auctions

Anna Dodonova and Yuri Khoroshilov

Applied Economics Letters, 2004, vol. 11, issue 5, 307-310

Abstract: This article presents empirical evidence that people use anchoring to form their valuation of an object. Using data from the on-line auction, we found that people bid more for an item with a higher posted 'buy now' price than for an identical item with the lower posted 'buy now' price.
