Export pricing at the firm level with panel data

Anyfantaki, S., Kalyvitis, S., Katsimi, M. & Thomaidou, E. (2018). Export pricing at the firm level with panel data. Athens, Greece: Bank of Greece Printing Works.


This chapter reviews the growing empirical literature that explores the determinants of export prices at the firm level. It first presents evidence from empirical studies that link firm export pricing to destination characteristics (‘gravity-type’ models). The main implications of channels that can generate price differentiation, namely quality customization, variable markups and exchange rate pass-through, and financial frictions are then explored. A newly compiled panel dataset from Greek exporting firms is used to present evidence from regressions with export price as the dependent variable and show how the main economic hypotheses derived in theoretical models are nested in empirical specifications.
