Abstract: This study examined the antecedents of customer satisfaction and purchase behaviour in an m-commerce setting. Data was collected from online customers who have previously purchased footwear from the m-commerce website of a leading footwear retailer in Bangladesh, a developing country. Using multiple regression analyses, the study examined the relationships between the independent and dependent variables (i.e., customer satisfaction and purchase). The results highlighted the positive effects of perceived website interactivity and perceived information quality on customer satisfaction, as well as the positive effects of perceived ease of use and perceived service quality on customer purchase behaviour. This study highlighted the important factors that m-commerce websites should focus on in order to deliver an enjoyable online shopping experience that can bring about the fulfilment of customer expectations, leading to stronger customer relationships and increased sales for the company. Further discussion and implications are presented.

Keywords: perceived website interactivity; perceived information quality; perceived service quality; customer satisfaction; purchase behaviour.
