Purpose – The purpose of this study is to replicate and extend the findings of Matzler
Design/methodology/approach – Based on a random sample of 406 bank customers, the impact of five price dimensions (price-quality ratio, price fairness, price transparency, price reliability, and relative price) on overall satisfaction is tested using structural equation modeling with Partial Least Squares (PLS). The asymmetric relationship is tested using regression analysis with dummy variables.
Findings – The results confirm Matzler
Research limitations/implications – The study replicates previous findings and supports the multi-dimensional nature of price satisfaction and shows that the three-factor theory of customer satisfaction applies also to price satisfaction.
Practical implications – The measurement of price satisfaction at the level of individual price dimensions and the assessment of asymmetric relationships provides managers with more precise data in order to take the right measures to increase satisfaction.
Originality/value – This paper confirms previous findings on the dimensionality of price satisfaction in a random sample of bank customers using structural equation modeling with PLS. Hence, it provides strong empirical support for Matzler
