Willingness to pay refers to the amount a consumer is willing to pay to buy the product. It is basically how much the consumers value the product.
Consumers value the product based on how much they are letting go. That is, how much value of goods or utility they are letting go to buy this particular good or take this particular decision. This makes up their willingness to pay for the good, which is derived on the value of their foregone alternatives or the opportunity cost.
