Six in 10 Brits admit they are certified “brand lovers” – who pay special attention to the logos on their products.
More than a fifth of 2,000 adults polled admit they often buy products because of the brand name.
One in four are even happy to pay an average of 27% more for a branded version of something, over a non-branded version of the same thing.
The consumer product Brits are most likely to ensure is a quality brand was revealed to be televisions, followed by coffee – and deodorant.
The research comes as “buy now, pay later” provider Laybuy partnered with illusionist Ryan Tricks to create a video wowing shoppers in Manchester with a display of magic, making their dream items appear from thin air.
Underneath an eye-catching mural designed by celebrity artist, Donna Adi, the illusionist was able to guess one passer-by's shoe size – and favourite shoe – before somehow revealing the empty shoebox she was holding was actually stocked with the exact trainer in question – along with a gift tag with her name on it.
Another who said they'd always wanted to visit Iceland saw tickets appear out of thin air and one shopper had their receipt magically turned into £100.
Ryan said: "It's always my goal to see surprise, mild confusion, and excitement on the faces of my audience, and by making these dream items appear magically out of nowhere I was definitely able to bring this to Manchester for the day."
The study also found 72% live by the rule of buying things in quality over quantity.
Just under six in ten (58%) also swear by the old adage that “if you buy cheap, you buy twice”, according to the OnePoll figures.
Millions also prefer to delay their gratification, as 54 percent would rather save up for a brand they really like, than get a so-called inferior version immediately.
People are more likely to care about the brand of their baked beans (23%) than their jeans (15%).
While four in ten say a well-known brand is well known precisely because the quality of its products is high.
Robyn Rohloff, from Laybuy, said: "We're celebrating the fact that shoppers can now shop at hundreds of their favourite brands for the first time all in one place within our app, rather than on individual partner websites.
"It means people can shop and pay in six interest-free instalments for household items, clothes, shoes, make-up and even holidays all in one go if desired, with brands added ranging from Amazon, ASOS, Charlotte Tilbury, Jimmy Choo and Nike, to Lastminute.com and eBay."
The Manchester mural marks the launch of Laybuy's new App Exclusives – which sees hundreds of brands added onto its app

As part of a nationwide “Scavenger Hunt” QR codes hidden in digital Laybuy billboards up and down the country can also be scanned until midnight on 19th September.
