Up-Selling Versus Down-Selling

This article evaluates customers’ postpurchase attitudinal and behavioral responses to two suggestive selling strategies employed in retail establishments: up-selling and down-selling.

The findings are based on a field study conducted among 2,381 customers from a large, national casual dining chain. Then they followed up with 352 customers 1 month later to determine the impact of the suggestive selling strategy on future visitation.

Was founded that while up-selling did improve short-term revenues, it had an adverse effect on customers’ attitudinal responses which resulted in a reduction in future brand patronage.

Conversely, down-selling did not compromise short-term revenues as is commonly thought, and also led to a superior attitudinal response and increased brand patronage.

Were demonstrated that the effect of the suggestive selling strategy on satisfaction and brand loyalty is chain mediated through value and quality. Finally, the findings suggest that, under certain circumstances, employing a down-selling strategy may lead to superior long-term revenues.
