We hope to discourage poor-quality imitators while helping our peers, and motivating ourselves, to produce work of even better quality in the future.

In total, 108 people tested 206 e-commerce websites. The studies took place in the United States, the United Kingdom, Denmark, and China (Hong Kong).
