Purchase recommendation was specified into two experimental conditions, namely recommendation and no recommendation, which signification and inaction tendencies in consumer decision making. The credibility of information was meant as a recommendation by expert and non-expert. A 2 X 2 factorial design was employed to test the hypotheses.
