Price cont

Price (cont.)

  • Price must be justified against benefits customer will receive

  • Price for a product is usually paid in money (currency)

    • Ancient form of exchange based on barter (products directly exchanged for other products)

  • Price is a strategic tool that can be changed easily and rapidly to manage inventory, increase sales, or to compete against other companies

Strategies to set prices

Strategies to set prices:

  • Price floor

    • the lowest price a company can charge and still cover costs

    • If price is too low, may be accused of dumping

  • Price ceiling

    • the maximum price that can be charged in a market. Usually set by the value customers see in a product.

  • Predatory dumping

    • is intentional selling at a loss to increase market share

  • Unintentional dumping

    • occurs when market factors cause the import’s selling price to fall below prices in the exporter’s home market

  • Remedies for dumping

    • Antidumping duty

      • are levied on imported goods sold at less than fair market value

    • Countervailing duties

      • are imposed on imports which are subsidized in the exporter’s home country

    Standard Global Pricing

    • Setting the same price everywhere

    • Unlikely to be used globally

    • Online environments do allow for single global pricing. Ex: iTunes offers products at a single global price. Individuals from around the world can go online and purchase the same products at same pricing.
