  • Abstract The purpose of this paper is discussing the relation between tacit collusion and price matching policy. There are two firms in the market, and we study the effects of price matching policy on collusion. Following the literature we use discount factors to measure difficulties while maintaining collusion. In conclusion, tacit collusion appears more often after employing price matching policy, and we also find that tacit collusion is easier to facilitate when more consumers request refund on both homogeneous and heterogeneous products. We also find that, with heterogeneous goods, it can be difficult to maintain collusion by firms when product are more substituted. Besides, we assume firms are employing Cournot competition in this paper.
