The aim of this paper is to investigate the impact of individual dimensions of Online Service Quality on perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, customer satisfaction, trust and loyalty in e-commerce settings. Empirical results indicate that the perceived service quality has positive direct effects on both customer satisfaction and trust. The results also show that customer satisfaction appears to have a positive direct effect on trust, while both customer satisfaction and trust have direct positive effects on loyalty through satisfaction and trust. Thus, both satisfaction and trust play an imperative role in creating customer loyalty as suggested by many authors. Some theoretical and managerial implications and suggestions for future research are also provided.
