Price Discrimination


The action of offering the same product to different buyers at different prices. The price for each buyer will depend on different factors such as order size and/or geographic location.


This practice is mostly used in marketing, in economic terms it refers to: two sales will be discriminatory when two different price-to-marginal cost ratios intervene. Two sales of equal price can be discriminatory if the rate of return is different when offering to both consumers.
