Abstract

Japanese consumers are changing their consumption patterns, following those of the Europeans and Americans (Salsberg, 2010). Generally known to be brand and quality conscious, Japanese are not willing to sacrifice quality and convenience for discounted and online purchases. Japanese consumers pick and choose their products differently. In general, the modified structural equation model shows that all relationships proposed by the theoretical model were significant except for two (i.e. product towards satisfaction and distribution towards e-satisfaction). The results suggest that to determine an online repeat shopper's e-satisfaction, companies need to focus their attention on their promotional activities, pricing and shopper's experience. On the other hand, when companies are seeking to determine an online repeat shopper's e-trust, companies need to focus their attention on product, promotional pricing and shopper's experience. Most importantly, the results show that between e-trust and e-satisfaction, e-satisfaction has a more significant impact on repeat online shoppers' loyalty.
