We demonstrate that consumers apply more stringent acceptance criteria when deciding to acquire a product for purchase than when deciding to acquire the same product for rent. As a result, consumers exhibit a higher propensity to acquire products when making a renting decision than when making a buying decision even when the price and consumption duration of renting and buying are identical. We show that decision reversibility is a critical factor that differentiates buying and renting decisions: the difference in acquisition propensity between buying and renting is attenuated, when the buying decision includes return policy.
