    Marketers have for several years dealt with consumer heterogeneity by segmenting the market to identify and address different consumer clusters. Yet, albeit the global nature of the internet, it is surprising that only a small number of studies (e.g., Barnes et al. 2007; Brengman et al. 2005; Shiu and Dawson 2002) identified their segmentation typologies using data from more than one country. In addition, whilst the role of emotions in consumer decision making is well-documented in the marketing literature (e.g., Han, Lerner and Keltner 2007; Kwortnik and Ross 2007), there is no consumer typology based on online users’ feelings. This study comes to address these gaps by collecting data from online users within four countries, namely the UK, USA, Australia and Canada to construct typologies based on consumer emotions.
