Pricing is 1% Math.

And 99% Psychology.

Here are 15 Pricing Psychology principles to get your user spending:
Set The Bar High

Users hang on to that initial piece of information. It affects all judgments.

And it works even if the number isn't related to the decision at hand.

So start with the highest price or just a high number - both work.
Spotlight The Savings

People hate spending.

But they love saving money even more

Put the emphasis on the savings, and you'll get them smiling (and spending).
No More Commas

When, I, Put, These, Commas

The sentence seems longer...

It's the same with numbers.

For humans: 1,500,000 > 1.5M
Reduce Price Fonts

The bigger the font,

The bigger the impact.

So when you're selling an individual product, keep that font size small.
Increase The Font Of Discounts

Using that same logic, when you want to make the discounts feel larger...

Increase the price fonts.

Bigger font = Bigger discount

That's at least how we think.
Set A High Quantity Limit

When Campbell's soup moved its purchase limit from 0 to 12...

The average number of purchased cans went from 3.3 to 7.

That's a 112% increase in sales!
Make Small Incremental Changes

Jump too much, and you'll lose them

Jump enough, and you'll make $$$

Want to learn how to do this right? I'm breaking it down in my newsletter this Thursday. Join 18,000+ others for $0:
Start With The Bad News

When you do that:

1/ you grab attention
2/ you make an offer that looks fair

That way, people are more likely to buy
Insert The Element of "Free"

Nothing sells like the word Free!

For instance, a $20 product with free delivery will sell more than a $15 product with a $2 delivery fee

It's definitely not math. It's psychology
Keep It Center Stage

We tend to be drawn to the option that's placed right in the middle.

It's perceived as the most popular option. So put your target offer there.
Remove The Currency Symbol

Simply looking at this $ symbol hurts

So when possible, remove it.

It'll reduce the pain of paying and trust me, that's high enough already!
Odd-Even Pricing

Want your offer to be perceived as a luxury, stick to prices ending in 0 or 5

Want it to look like a good deal, stick to prices that end with 7, 8, or 9.
Break Down Your Offer

To the lowest, reasonable unit of time

$100/day >> $3000/mo

It triggers comparisons that make your offer too good to pass on.
Pay Now, Buy Later

We all know paying hurts.

But it hurts lesser when we pay before we consume. That way, we got something to look forward to.

So charge on the first day of the subscription, not the last...
That's all for me!

Any more numbers and my head is gonna burst. So let's not do that...

Still, if you can think of any other tactics or questions, I'd love to see them in the comments :)
