Designing pricing mechanisms in the presence of rational customers with multi-unit demands

Gulcu, Altan 09 January 2009 (has links)
First, we analyze the optimal design of a markdown pricing mechanism with preannounced prices. In the presence of limited supply, buyers who choose to purchase at a lower price may face a scarcity in supply. Our focus is on the structure of the optimal markdown mechanisms in the presence of rational or "strategic" buyers who demand multiple units. We first examine a complete information setting where the set of customer valuations is known but the seller does not know the valuation of each individual customer (i.e., cannot exercise perfect price discrimination). We then generalize our analysis to an incomplete valuation information setting where customer valuations are drawn from known distributions. For both settings, we compare the seller's profit resulting from the optimal markdown mechanism and the optimal single price. We provide a number of managerial insights into designing profitable markdown mechanisms. Next, we focus on the purchasing behavior of the customers and the optimal pricing decisions of the seller assuming that the seller has incomplete information about the customer demand. Each buyer demands multiple units of the homogeneous product that the seller is offering via a priority pricing mechanism with multiple prices, where the only difference is the availability/scarcity of the supply at each price. We provide managerial insights based on the results from a stylized model. Finally, building on the incomplete demand information setting, we focus on the value of improved information about the customer demand to the seller. We investigate whether improved information benefits the seller and if the seller would prefer to share the improved demand information with the customers.

The Effect of Different Forms of Accounting Feedback, Cost Aggregation and Pricing Knowledge on Profitability and Profit Estimation

Smith, David M., 1961- 05 1900 (has links)
This study extends a research stream calling for further research regarding pricing and accounting feedback. Marketing executives rely heavily on accounting information for pricing decisions, yet criticize accounting feedback usefulness. To address this criticism, this research integrates the cognitive psychology and accounting literature addressing feedback effectiveness with pricing research in the marketing discipline. The research extends the scope of previous accounting feedback studies by using a control group and comparing two proxies of subject task knowledge; years of pricing experience and a measure of the cognitive structure of pricing knowledge. In addition, this research manipulates task complexity by using two different accounting systems. These systems vary in the number of cost pools used in allocating overhead, resulting in differentially projected cost and profit information. A total of 60 subjects participated in a computer laboratory experiment. These subjects were non-accountants with varying amounts of pricing knowledge. Subjects were randomly assigned to six experimental groups which varied by feedback type (no accounting feedback, outcome feedback only, or a combination of outcome and task properties feedback) and task complexity (high or low number of overhead cost pools). The subjects attempted to (1) maximize profits for a product during 15 rounds of pricing decisions, and (2) accurately estimate their profit for each round. The experimental results indicate no difference in performance between the three feedback types examined. However, increases in both subjects' pricing knowledge and the number of cost pools do influence feedback effectiveness. This study suggests that the amount of the users' task knowledge may influence the effectiveness of current accounting reports. In addition, increasing the number of cost pools in accounting systems may be beneficial for all users.

A simple funds transfer pricing model for a commercial bank

Pushkina, Nataliya 21 August 2013 (has links)
Thesis (M.M. (Finance & Investment))--University of the Witwatersrand, Faculty of Commerce, Law and Management, Graduate School of Business Administration, 2013. / This thesis addresses the core issue of Funds Transfer Pricing (FTP) that has been brought about by the dynamic nature in the changes in the financial industry. This research has drawn up elements from a systematic historical perspective of how a funds pricing policy has been carried out among the banks. The research has made use of the elements of classical economic theory to formulate a conceptual model that will assist in the understanding of the dynamics of the driving changes in Funds Transfer Prices. In an effort to bridge the theoretical and empirical gap in classical economics and the value chain theory, a simple systematic model was constructed. This model was used to understand the dynamics of future changes in the Funds Transfer Pricing. This was done by first analysing the various components that have influenced the basic elements of the model. The basic elements are the liabilities, assets and the Treasury of banking institutions. The interaction of these elements forms the basis of the Funds Transfer Pricing model that was formulated. Using this model, banking institutions would be able to maximize profits and ensure customer satisfaction at the same time. The simple model proposed handles the problems that are caused by the more complex methods used and offers a practical and simple approach to Funds Transfer Pricing in commercial banks.

Integrative pricing via the pricing wheel.

Jobber, David, Shipley, D. January 2001 (has links)
No / Pricing is a critically important management activity with major strategic and operational implications. However, pricing is a much-neglected and ineptly administered marketing responsibility, and numerous errors are made. A prime reason for this is that firms are preoccupied with the use of convenient, often singularly cost-based, pricing methods that fail to assimilate the impact of the full range of effective pricing determinants. This article introduces the concept of the pricing wheel that is a multistage process for effective price management. It provides a systematic means for analyzing and incorporating into decision making the strategic role of price, pricing objectives, the plethora of internal and external pricing determinants, pricing strategy, the pricing technique, and the necessary implementation and control procedures. As a key element of the pricing process, the article advocates utilization of an integrative pricing technique, and it proposes a logical sequence in which it can be applied.
