Zaeema Asrar Mohiuddin


Impulse buying can simply be defined as an unplanned decision to purchase a particular product. The person who make such buying is called an impulse buyer. It is not necessary that impulse buying would always be in the boundaries of necessary products, there are the times when customers purchase those products which are not necessary for their lives. Impulse buying can also extend to big items like vehicles, home-based appliances etc. It interrupts the usual decision making models in customers' minds. The rational sequence of the customers' activities is replaced with an irrational moment of self-satisfaction. In short, impulse buying is linked with the emotional side of the customers. It is more irresistible than planned purchasing which reveals its significance. The objective of this study is to highlight the relationship of demographic factors i.e. age, gender, income and education and impulse buying behavior of customers in Pakistan.
