- Price dispersion is defined as a situation where identical, or similar, products are sold by sellers at different prices. In a world without any price dispersion, we would expect homogeneous prices across all sellers especially online since there are essentially no search costs involved. However, that is not what is observed in real life, where products with identical characteristics are sold at varying prices. This paper attempts to break down the cause of this dispersion by analyzing what leads to online price dispersion, how the price of the product is affected by product characteristics, the seller characteristics, market variables etc.
