Abstract: The dependence of purchase decisions on price reference points is a well-documented aspect of consumer choice. In this research, we develop a cross-category choice model to investigate how reference prices in one product category influence consumer purchase behavior in other categories. Our model is based upon the assumption that a consumer’s subjective judgment of the fairness of the prices in one category influences the choice of items in other categories, especially related categories. The new model can be considered a generalized extension of the traditional Nested Logit (NL) to multiple-category multiple-item choice decisions (more generally pick-any choice). It is suitable for choices consisting of multiple stages (e.g., category incidence and brand choice in multiple category choice situations). We propose to calibrate the model using purchase histories from an IRI scanner panel for the cereal category.
