Abstract: This paper uses transaction-level trade data to analyze the differences in export prices across and within Spanish manufacturing rms in the year 2014. The transactionalnature of the database uncovers sizable differences in the price that an exporter charges for the same product and destination. To explain this new margin in the variation of export prices, we extend the Baldwin and Harrigan (2011) model, allowing more productive firms to manufacture a wider quality-range of varieties. For a representative sample of multi-transaction and multi-destination exporting firms, regression analyses con rm that more productive rms set higher average export prices and o er a wider quality-range of varieties within a destination.
