    • Pricing StrategiesPremium pricing  Uses a high price, but gives a good product/service exchange e.g. Honda, The Ritz HotelPenetration pricing  offers low price to gain market share - then increases price  e.g. Vodafone- to attract new corporate clientsEconomy pricing  placed at ‘no frills’, low price  e.g. Soups, spaghetti, Perk - ‘economy’ brands
    •  Price skimming  where prices are high - usually during introduction  e.g new albums or films on release  ultimately prices will reduce to the ‘parity’ Psychological pricing  to get a customer to respond on an emotional, rather than rational basis  .e.g 99p not £1.01 ‘price point perspective Product line pricing  rationale of a product range  Detergents Pricing variations  ‘off-peak’ pricing, early booking discounts, etc  e.g Maruti offers a ‘cash back’ incentive for Wagon R
    •  Optional product-pricing  e.g. optional extras - BMW famously under- equipped Captive product pricing  products that complement others  e.g Gillette razors (low price) and blades (high price) Product-bundle pricing  sellers combine several products at the same price  e.g software, books, CDs. Promotional pricing  e.g. toothpaste, soups, etc
