I need some input...

I have to make a decision about the cost of my book.
I submitted a price already, but I think I'd to change (lower) it.
I need some input as to what is more appealing.

Don't think about size or page count.
I want to know what would 'draw' your eye.

$9.99
or
$10.00

I read somewhere a long time ago, that $9.99 is more "appealing" to the general public, and most peole like the .'99' aspect.
But $10.00 just seems more even to me.


So please let me know what you think...whats more appealing to you.
I need to re-submit this soon.

Thank you all in advance.

it's a mind trick, people ALWAYS think that .99 is so much cheaper than the whole number, just cause it's not a whole number... go for the 9.99!

Greatest mind trick in marketing history imo.

$10.00. So much easier to balance the books!

As an avid seller on ebay, I start all my items at $4.99, $9.99, etc. It just looks cheaper.

9.99 is easily more appealing.

I mean, seriously, it's 1 cent cheaper! It's more appealing to the eye AND the wallet!

It's just a fact in retail that having something as $9.99 instead of $10.00 is more appealing. Also...when I see something for $9.99, I think of it as $10, but I have already been with people who will refer to something that costs $9.99 as costing $9...so they automatically refer to it as being 99 cents cheaper when reasoning to buy it ("It's only $9".)

Me, I like $10 because I like those nice, round numbers.

I can spare a penny.
