Abstract :

Purchasing clothes via mobile devices is a reality. Promising products can be sold through this channel. Since mobile commerce, in general, is a fact, one wonders about the factors that more specifically influence an individualâ??s decision to repeat clothing purchasing. In particular, the aim of this paper is to analyze the cognitive (reputation, guarantee and security & privacy policies) and experiential aspects or signals (aesthetics, interactivity, enjoyment and personalization) that increase customer satisfaction and trust in the mobile buying process, as well as customer intention to repeat buying using this same channel. The final useful sample amounted to 123 mobile clothing consumers. The results indicate that the cognitive signals show greater influence than the experiential in relational variables. On the one hand, reputation, guarantee and security & privacy policies directly increase the trust in the company, and indirectly the intention to repurchase clothing by mobile devices. On the other hand, satisfaction is enhanced by the attractiveness of the mobile website. Finally, both satisfaction and trust are key factors in the customerâ??s intention to repeat buying clothes via mobile devices. This work goes one step further; first, it discusses variables that, to date, have not been analyzed in relation to each other in the literature of mobile clothing commerce. Second, from a business perspective this article provides indispensable knowledge for going beyond the mere transaction to acting on improving long-term consumer-seller relationships.
