Price DiscriminationPrice discrimination is any pricing strategy that attempts to sell both to customers who are price sensitive and those who are relatively insensitive to price. For example, a manufacturer of sunglasses may set a low price for unpopular colors. Customers who are price sensitive may be tempted to buy a color that is on sale. Customers who aren't price sensitive will buy the color they prefer.

For example, vehicle registration and license fees based on the emissions of the vehicle.Yield management is the science of pricing inventory that occurs at a point in time such as a seat on a flight or a hotel room.
