Wheels are supposed to be important parts of a suitcase. Users had better to choose many skates or rubber wheels, because wheels are easy to be broken with impertinent movement on board. Next, you need to check if there is sheen on the upper of the wheels. Generally, the wheels made of raw material will show sheen, while the wheels which look rough with no sheen always made of recycle material and bad in quality.

The common materials of hardshell include ABS, PC and thermoplastic composite, and the softshell for the suitcase or luggage bags always made of oxford fabric or leather. ABS shell is formed by model, which is solid and , but is so hard and heavy.

Researchers would interview the customers before they enter the market and put a RFID tag on their bags or clothing so that they can master the movement of the customers at any time. Then they would send message by app and count the money when they check out.

According the the result of the research, the traditional sale rules are considered to be right that every 55 feet they go, which means that every 20 steps they take, they will spend 1 more dollar. Since the selling skills has been admit again, the following challenge is how to let customers willingly to go further in the market? After all, the store manager can’t stain customers to go to every corner in the market.

Though manager can’t force customers, he can induce consumption. This time, app can come in handy. Researchers plan to utilize app to induce customers to go further, so they divide the volunteers into two groups. One group can receive the coupon message away from the route they are shopping, the other group just receive the coupon on their route.
