Pricing strategy constitutes one of the four key elements of a marketer’s arsenal (referred famously as the “4Ps” as proposed by E. Jerome McCarthy). Price refers to not just the amount a customer pays for a product or a service but also determines the company’s profit and hence survival. Thus, marketers are under tremendous pressure to making key pricing strategy decisions for their organizations.
