Abstract
This study synthesizes the efforts to conceptualize the effects of perceived sacrifice, perceived service quality, perceived value, and customer satisfaction on consumers' behavioral intentions in the context of service environment. It reports an empirical assessment of a model of service encounters that simultaneously considers the direct effects of these variables on behavioral intentions. A number of notable findings are reported including the empirical verification that perceived sacrifice, service quality, value, and satisfaction may all be directly related to behavioral intentions when considered collectively. The results further suggest the indirect effects of the service quality and value constructs on behavioral intentions.

A taxonomy of varied behavior is offered to structure research findings pertaining to the various phenomena termed “variety seeking.” The literature is reviewed within that framework. Seemingly disparate research traditions, one viewing the phenomenon as inexplicable, the other attempting explanation, are shown to be converging. A model encompassing current research is proposed and its parameters scrutinized.

The inherent characteristics of services are well-known but do we really understand what services are, how services form an essential part of most products produced and delivered today, how services can enhance differentiation, competitiveness and help drive innovation and regional economic development? Sadly despite some 30 years of endeavour the answer is no, and so we need to consider how this problem can realistically be addressed by identifying the key services themes which need intensive l...

A conceptual framework is proposed that analyses the effect of perceived service quality, customer satisfaction, trust in the energy provider and perceived switching costs on customer loyalty in residential energy markets. Three distinct dimensions of perceived service quality are identified: technical quality of core services, technical quality of peripheral services and service process quality (functional service quality). The proposed model is tested within the scope of a representative surve...

Service quality, customer satisfaction and customer value have become the priority of both manufacturers and service provider in the increasingly intensified competition for customers in today's customer-centered era. However, findings regarding service quality, customer satisfaction and customer value are rather divergent and related studies are fragmented, especially for the complicated interrelationships among them. Thus, less is known about the relative impacts of quality-related factors on ...

The environmentally friendly or ‘sustainable’ products have been launched in various markets in response to the growing concerns for the environmental deterioration and the alarming effects of climate change in past years. However, the uptake of green products does not seem to fully reflect the self-claimed pro-environmental concerns and attitudes. Consumers who profess to be environmentally conscious and believe they could help slow down environmental deterioration do not necessarily purchase e...

Abstract This article presents a purchase equity model for online group buying (OGB) to examine the antecedents and consequences of OGB behavior. The study tests 458 usable responses collected by means of mall-intercept systematic sampling from consumers who had previously participated in OGB against the purchase equity model using structural equation modeling. Drawing from both input constructs (perceived sacrifice and perceived risk) and output constructs (perceived benefit and perceived quali...

The second process shows that programme loyalty increases customer's involvement with brand exp...
