3 Customer Value-Based Pricing Buye r’s Perc epti ons of Valu eGood-value pricingValue-added pricingNotes to Accompany Slide:Customer value-based pricing uses buyers’ perceptions of value, not the seller’s cost, as the key to pricing. Value-based pricing means that the marketer cannot design a product and marketing program and then set the price. Price is considered along with the other marketing mix variables before the marketing program is set.Good-value pricing strategies involves offering just the right combination of quality and good service at a fair price.Value-added pricing involves attaching value-added features and services to differentiate a company’s offers and charging higher prices.

7 Pricing in Different Types of Markets Pure competitionMonopolistic competitionOligopolistic competitionMonopolyNotes to Accompany Slide:The seller’s pricing freedom varies with different types of markets.Under pure competition, the market consists of many buyers and sellers trading in a uniform commodity such as wheat, copper, or financial securities. No single buyer or seller has much effect on the going market price. In a purely competitive market, marketing research, product development, pricing, advertising, and sales promotion play little or no role. Thus, sellers in these markets do not spend much time on marketing strategy.Under monopolistic competition, the market consists of many buyers and sellers who trade over a range of prices rather than a single market price. A range of prices occurs because sellers can differentiate their offers to buyers. Sellers try to develop differentiated offers for different customer segments and, in addition to price, freely use branding, advertising, and personal selling to set their offers apart.Under oligopolistic competition, the market consists of a few sellers who are highly sensitive to each other’s pricing and marketing strategies. Because there are few sellers, each seller is alert and responsive to competitors’ pricing strategies and moves.
