Abstract: The research investigates consumers’ online shopping behaviour. The Authors suggest that due to high perceived risk of online shopping consumers are prompted to use cues of shoppers’ reputation. One of such cues can be a number of opinions expressed by the previous customers. In the series of two experiments a number of other consumers’ opinions has been manipulated to influence choice of product supplier. The results suggest that other consumers’ opinions could be used as a shoppers’ quality cue. The subjects didn’t choose the cheapest version of product but they made a trade-off between price and number of opinions.
