Do Consumers Pay Voluntarily? The Case of Online Music

Tobias Regner and Javier A. Barria ()

Post-Print from HAL

Abstract: The paper analyses the payment behaviour of customers of the online music label Magnatune. Customers may pay what they want for albums, as long as the payment is within a given price range ($5-$18). Magnatune's comprehensive pre-purchase access facilitates music discovery and allows an informed buying decision setting it apart from conventional online music stores.
