People queuing

Should you tell customers how long they’ll be queuing for this holiday season?

December 2, 2022

By partially hiding this information, the researchers say they are likely to generate more customers in the queue. However, if a product is of low-demand and of low-value, the researchers suggest that companies should avoid partially hiding the queue length information, as it is likely to have the opposite desired effect and deter customers.
