There are three major steps in consumer decision making process and it is not necessary that all of the consumer follow each and every step:


1. Routine response behaviour— In which routinely products are purchased.

2. Limited problem solving—At this stage consumer has limited experience to buy products.

3. Extended problem solving—It is the most complex step of consumer decision making.
