报告题目:Does Omnichannel Selling with Pre-Order Benefit a Retailer in the Presence of Strategic Consumers?




报告内容简介:Retailers nowadays increasingly integrate independent selling channels, moving from the multichannel paradigm to the omnichannel paradigm. In this paper we study omnichannel selling with the pre-order option and returns policy for a retailer in the presence of strategic consumers. We show that omnichannel selling with pre-order is not necessarily beneficial to the retailer in general. We identify the thresholds for unit production cost and demand uncertainty, above which omnichannel selling with pre-order is beneficial. In addition, we derive the conditions under which omnichannel with pre-order and returns policy is favorable by the retailer, even if the returned product cannot be resold. Moreover, studying the effects of the proportion of the strategic consumers in the market, we show that under some conditions omnichannel selling with pre-order will bring more profit to the retailer when the market share of the strategic consumers increases.
