Voluntary market payments: underlying motives, success drivers and success potentials


Natter, Martin; Kaufmann, Katharina (2015). Voluntary market payments: underlying motives, success drivers and success potentials. Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Economics, 57(C):149-157.

Abstract

The authors provide an overview about research conducted in the area of four different voluntary market payment mechanisms, namely tipping, pay-what-you-want, donations, and gift giving. The authors identify three different research streams: the first stream of research investigates product and consumer characteristics that drive success measures of voluntary payment mechanisms, the second stream of research is more outcome oriented and studies economic and communicative success potentials of alternative mechanisms, whereas the third stream of research is more fundamentally oriented and discusses underlying motives of free market payments. The authors summarize and discuss important findings with respect to the three different research streams and point to open research questions and controversial findings in the field.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
