The role of usability and satisfaction in the consumer's commitment to a financial services website
In this paper, we have analysed the antecedents of affective commitment to a website, due to the fact that commitment is a key factor in order to maintain a long-term relationship between the consumer and the business in the online context. In terms of affective commitment, we have found a positive, direct and significant relationship between website perceived usability and consumer's affective commitment. So, higher levels of website usability might lead to higher levels of consumer's affective commitment to the website. In addition, in this research we have also noticed a direct, positive and significant relationship between satisfaction in previous interactions and the consumer's commitment to a financial services website.
