Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine the drivers of the customers’ cross-buying intentions for retail banking services in Hong Kong. Design/methodology/approach – The research model was developed based on literature and tested empirically among 269 customers of retail banks in Hong Kong. Structural equation modelling was used to test the system of relationships. Findings – The results indicate that the customers’ cross-buying intentions are primarily associated with image conflicts about the provider’s abilities to deliver high quality financial services from different activities and high levels of customer loyalty. Research limitations/implications – The research is limited to a single country focus of Hong Kong retail banking. The generalizibility of these findings is therefore limited to this context. Practical implications – The findings of the study have important implications for academicians in understanding what drives cross-buying behaviour as well as retail bank practitioners to hel...

The concept of online customer service experience (OCSE) has recently received great interest from academia and businesses alike. Despite the belief that providing superb online experiences will influence customers' behaviour, most of the research focuses solely on the customer perspective rather than the firm's strategic viewpoint. This study investigates current strategies of retail banking service, developing a much-needed typology of such practices. Based on in-depth interviews with senior e...

This article explores a formative, hierarchical model of relationship quality and its effects in the Hong Kong retail banking services sector. Data were collected from a survey of 269 customers and analyzed using structural equation modeling (SEM). The findings support the theoretical framework showing relationship quality impacts repurchase intention, cross-buying intention, recommendation behavior, and reduced switching behavior to competitor offerings. Further, a moderating effect of gender w...

Purpose – This research seeks to extend the work of Dabholkar et al. into the e‐retail domain to assess alternate theoretical frameworks of e‐service quality. Particular focus is placed on e‐service quality and whether elements of e‐service quality should be viewed by dimensions, as antecedents to a global evaluation of e‐service quality, or as a formative configuration to predict behavioral intentions. The mediating role of customer satisfaction is also to be explored in these frameworks.Design...

Cross-selling additional services to existing customers is an important task for multi-service companies. This paper examines whether and how a corporate reputation influences customers' economically orientated (that is, perceived benefits of buying new services from current supplier) and relationship perceptions (that is, evaluations of relationship strength and supplier's offerings) and, in turn, their cross-buying intentions. Good corporate reputations build customer cross-buying intentions b...

Structural equation modeling (SEM) has become a quasi-standard in marketing and management research when it comes to analyzing the cause-effect relations between latent constructs. For most researchers, SEM is equivalent to carrying out covariance-based SEM (CB-SEM). While marketing researchers have a basic understanding of CB-SEM, most of them are only barely familiar with the other useful approach to SEM-partial least squares SEM (PLS-SEM). The current paper reviews PLS-SEM and its algorithm, ...

Is a customer’s past purchase experience of traditional banking products applicable to the continuing purchase of insurance and investment products at a bank branch? Are service attributes used with similar extensions evaluated differently from when used with dissimilar extensions? In response to these questions, this study develops and examines a framework of service attributes (e.g., locational and one-stop shopping convenience, functional and technical service quality, and firm reputation and...

This research examines this question in the context of a subscription service. Design/methodology/approach This...
