This approach which is often used in the pricing of high technology products and services, is based on the insight that manufacturers learn to trim production costs over time in a phenomenon known as experience effects. Geographic pricing occurs when different prices are charged in different geographic markets for an identical product. Guaranteed pricing is a variant of contingency pricing.

It refers to the practice of including an undertaking or promise that certain results or outcomes will be achieved. In the event that the result is not achieved, the client does not pay for the service.

High-low pricing refers to the practice of offering goods at a high price for a period of time, followed by offering the same goods at a low price for a predetermined time. This practice is widely used by chain stores selling homewares. The main disadvantage of the high-low tactic is that consumers tend to become aware of the price cycles and time their purchases to coincide with a low-price cycle. Honeymoon Pricing refers to the practice of using a low introductory price with subsequent price increases once relationship is established.

The objective of honeymoon pricing is to "lock" customers into a long-term association with the vendor.

This approach is widely used in situations where customer switching costs are relatively high such as in home loans and financial investsments. A loss leader is a product that has a price set below the operating margin. Loss leadering is widely used in supermarkets and budget-priced retail outlets where the store as a means of generating store traffic.

The low price is widely promoted and the store is prepared to take a small loss on an individual item, with an expectation that it will recoup that loss when customers purchase other higher priced-higher margin items.

In service industries, loss leadering may refer to the practice of charging a reduced price on the first order as an inducement and with anticipation of charging higher prices on subsequent orders. Offset pricing also known as diversionary pricing is the service industry's equivalent of loss leadering.

A service may price one component of the offer at a very low price with an expectation that it can recoup any losses by cross-selling additional services.

For example, a carpet steam cleaning service may charge a very low basic price for the first three rooms, but charges higher prices for additional rooms, furniture and curtain cleaning.

The operator may also try to cross-sell the client on additional services such as spot-cleaning products, or stain-resistant treatments for fabrics and carpets. Parity pricing refers to the process of pricing a product at or near a rival's price in order to remain competitive. Price bundling also known as product bundling occurs where two or more products or services are priced as a package with a single price.

There are several types of bundles: The prices of the bundle is typically less than when the two items are purchased separately. Peak and off-peak pricing is a form of price discrimination where the price variation is due to some type of seasonal factor.

The objective of peak and off peak pricing is to use prices to even out peaks and troughs in demand. Peak and off-peak pricing is widely used in tourism, travel and also in utilities such as electricity providers. Peak pricing has caught the public's imagination since the ride-sharing service provider, Uber, commenced using surge pricing and has sought to patent the technologies that support this approach.

Price discrimination is also known as variable pricing or differential pricing. Price lining is the use of a limited number of prices for all product offered by a business. Price lining is a tradition started in the old five and dime stores in which everything cost either 5 or 10 cents. In price lining, the price remains constant but quality or extent of product or service adjusted to reflect changes in cost. The underlying rationale of this tactic is that these amounts are seen as suitable price points for a whole range of products by prospective customers.

It has the advantage of ease of administering, but the disadvantage of inflexibility, particularly in times of inflation or unstable prices.

Price lining continues to be widely used in department stores where customers often note racks of garments or accessories priced at predetermined price points e. Penetration pricing is an approach that can be considered at the time of market entry. In this approach, the price of a product is initially set low in an effort to penetrate the market quickly. Low prices and low margins also act as a deterrent, preventing potential rivals from entering the market since they would have to undercut the low margins to gain a foothold.

Prestige pricing is also known as premium pricing and occasionally luxury pricing or high price maintenance refers to the deliberate pursuit of a high price posture to create an image of quality. Price signalling is where the price is used as an indicator of some other attribute. For example, some travel resorts promote that when two adults make a booking, the kids stay for free. This type of pricing is designed to signal that the resort is a family friendly operation. Price skimming , also known as skim-the-cream pricing is a tactic that might be considered at market entry.

The objective is to charge relatively high prices in order to recoup the cost of product development early in the life-cycle and before competitors enter the market. Promotional pricing is a temporary measure that involves setting prices at levels lower than normally charged for a good or service.

Promotional pricing is sometimes a reaction to unforeseen circumstances, as when a downturn in demand leaves a company with excess stocks; or when competitive activity is making inroads into market share or profits. Two-part pricing is a variant of captive-market pricing used in service industries. Two part pricing breaks the actual price into two parts; a fixed service fee plus a variable consumption rate. Two- part pricing tactics are widely used by utility companies such as electricity, gas and water and services where there is a quasi- membership type relationship, credit cards where an annual fee is charged and theme parks where an entrance fee is charged for admission while the customer pays for rides and extras.

One part of the price represents a membership fee or joining fee, while the second part represents the usage component. Psychological pricing is a range of tactics designed to have a positive psychological impact. Psychological pricing is widely used in a variety of retail settings.

Premium pricing also called prestige pricing [30] is the strategy of consistently pricing at, or near, the high end of the possible price range to help attract status-conscious consumers. The high pricing of a premium product is used to enhance and reinforce a product's luxury image. Examples of companies which partake in premium pricing in the marketplace include Rolex and Bentley. As well as brand, product attributes such as eco-labelling and provenance e.

A component of such premiums may reflect the increased cost of production. People will buy a premium priced product because:. People have generally become wealthier, therefore the mass marketing phenomenon of luxury has simply become a part of everyday life, and no longer reserved for the elite. This phenomenon enables premium pricing opportunities for marketers in luxury markets.

Examples of this can be seen with items such as clothing and electronics. Charging a premium price for a product also makes it more inaccessible and helps it gain an exclusive appeal. Luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton and Gucci are more than just clothing and become more of a status symbol. No framerate issues, skips, buffer exhaustion, disconnects, or problems of any type. The firmware updater told me that it already had the latest version.

Not a major thing, but nice. I took one star off the rating for the following cumulative reasons: You have to start the WiFi connection wizard even though already connected , read the signal strength off the "found networks" screen, then abort the connection wizard by clicking on the "Back" button. Windows of course only indicates the gigabit "wired" connection between the computer's NIC and the bridge.

Works fine right out of the box, especially if you are not technically inclined, don't want to change the default security settings, and just want to stop running wires down the hall. Strong signal for the first time ever into our computer room. Not designed for a technophile.

Really, how hard would it have been to add indicators for signal strength and connection speed to the overview screen? By Lani on February 10, This product barely works.

Or, rather, it works quite well.. Sometimes I'm just out of internet for an hour or two while it decides to reset. It's really quite unreliable. I've had it conk out on me mid-conversation with a business associate as well.

Right in the middle of our talks, my desktop got disconnected from the internet because of this piece of junk. It was two hours before it decided to start working again. This isn't the first one of these that I've tried either. I'd love if they came out with some form of firmware update to fix this, but the last update there was from They don't care about support either, it would seem.

Brown on February 18, My Uverse has 45Mbps down and 6Mbps up. On a wired connection I typically get down and 5. I have setup a new office which is not wired for internet so I have to use wireless. My first thought was a USB 3. I tried a factory reset, made sure the latest firmare was installed but no matter what I did the upload speed would still slow to a crawl. That brings me up to the point where I bought this bridge. I do not experience the slowdown on the upload speed with this bridge but the fastest download speed I've been able to get is 26Mbps.

Because I use IPSec tunnels to remotely connect to the office I need the reliable upload speed so I'm sticking with this one but it would really be nice if I could get the faster download speeds that the Linksys bridge provided. Get fast answers from reviewers.
