Second Annual Consumer Behavior and Payment Choice Research Conference
Following is a representative, but not exclusive, list of the kinds of potential paper topics we seek: - Why do consumers use the payments instruments they use? - What can behavioral economics tell us about consumer payment choices? - Does payment choice affect consumption, savings, and debt? Do consumers use payments to smooth their consumption (pay now vs. later)? - Design, development, and collection of data on consumer payment behavior. - Consumer demand for payment technologies, including cash, checks, credit cards, debit cards, stored value cards, Internet banking, and ACH transactions. - Pricing of payment technologies and the elasticity of consumer demand for payment technologies. - Consumer perceptions and misperceptions about cost, safety, and convenience of payment instruments. - How does merchant acceptance affect consumer payment choice? - The relationship between the use of payment technologies and the pricing of goods and services. - The impact of payment technologies on shopping time and consumer or household behavior. - The relationship between consumer demand for payment technologies and consumer portfolio management.
