Consumer Preferences for Service Recovery Options After Delivery Delay When Shopping Online
Abstract:We identified the key attributes of service recovery for product delivery delays when shopping online and elucidated the preference structures of consumers regarding these attributes. A conjoint analysis was conducted using a sample of 201 Internet users; and we found that the 4 most critical attributes of service recovery were: compensation, response speed, apologies, and contact channels. We used a part-worth utility of attribute levels as segmentation variables and conducted a cluster analysis to group the respondents, and to distinguish preferences across various consumer segments. Our findings can serve as a reference for e-retailers when developing service recovery strategies for delayed product delivery.
