The goals of the study are to understand the extent of materialism and compulsive buying among shoppers in Kochi Municipal Corporation.

Type of study-The study is descriptive and cross-sectional in nature using the survey design. Population -There are around 0.35 million credit card users in Kochi Municipal Corporation, Kerala (Total of 1.5 million people). These cards are offered by 28 different national and international banks together having 199 different types of product offerings. Sample Frame and Sampling Technique - A quota sample of 550 respondents is selected from among those who are using the credit cards for a period greater than one year. This method is identified by the researcher as a credible way of tracking credit card spending and financing patterns as the respondents have completed a few billing cycles in the said period. Prior to this a pilot study was conducted among 200 credit card users to determine their responses and to validate the questionnaire. The number of final respondents from whom data collection was done is 550. The quota sampling is a non-probability sampling technique which can involve the judgement of the researcher as well to ensure quality of the responses.
