Abstract

Various studies support how satisfied customers become loyal customers by investigating attitudes and behavior, while fewer studies have examined links among dissatisfaction, complaints, and loyalty, particularly in the virtualized environment. By applying justice dimension, the purpose of this study is to explore i) how different types of justice affect customer dissatisfaction; ii) how the level of customer dissatisfaction affects willingness to complain/complaining behavior; iii) how willingness to complain/complaining behavior affects repeat purchase behavior based on how complaints are resolved by a company; and iv) how repeat purchase behavior affects loyalty. Proposed relationships are investigated with effects of advanced services (i.e., 2Is, Interactivity and Individualization) and product category that are applied in the virtualized environment. By applying various statistical analyses, this study provides managerial and theoretical implications and offers suggestions to e-businesses.
