40 Uniform Posted Price interpreted as a formula for the probability that the RP exceeds a certain price. 9 Therefore, why should one use the expected demand at a particular price as an indicator of the actual demand at that price? We cannot always do this. However, suppose the market we sell to is composed of thousands of individuals, each of whom has an RP for one unit of SOMA that is uniformly distributed between 0 and 10. 10 Then, based on what we know about sampling, we can be fairly confident that the actual demand will be close to the expected demand.

Field is difficult, time consuming and costly to set up; price experiments in the case of consumer products require retailer cooperation; subject to disruption by competitors Cannot be used for new products; in some cases insufficient price variation to reliably estimate price response; competitive price data may be unavailable; estimating own price response alone is misleading in volatile markets in which company product sales is significantly affected by competitive price moves Purchase intention surveys more common in B2C than B2B; in B2C mall-intercept surveys often used; opportunity to demonstrate product and obtain price response Lab and field; lab allows greater control and isolation of price effects, field has external validity Historical data Prior sales and price data used to estimate price response 22 Experimentation B2C products; consumer packaged-goods (CPG) companies use field experiments to assess price, advertising, promotion, and package response; car rental companies vary the fuel surcharge and price of GPS systems to estimate uptake, etc.

The probability distribution over RPs for a semi-log demand function, ln D = a − bp, corresponds to a power law distribution; that is, P r (R P ≤ p) = bp −(b+1) . Sometimes one may wish to estimate the probability of purchase at a price p rather than average demand at price p. That is, rather than estimating E (N)P r (R P ≥ p), we estimate P r (R P ≥ p). This is done with a variation of regression known as logit. , it takes on the value 0 or 1). An example will illustrate when the technique is to be used.
