  1. Another one is pricing the stuff X9. 99 or the sorts. Let me make an example: Psychologically, people will see 99.99 as a price much lower than 100.00 thus thinking that the price is lower and more people buying. Much lesser people will buy it when the pricing of the product is at 100.00.

  2. Disney is the master of the scarcity ploy. Their older movies are put out just about every 5-6 years in limited editions even though there are generally not many differences between the one you bought 5-6 years ago.

  3. There’s even more. The x.99 in America develops a lower expected price. You see the dollar amount but disregard the cents. Example 9.99 is only 9 dollars!
