Determining the Effect of Banking Service Quality on Customer Loyalty Using Customer Satisfaction as a Mediating Variable: An Applied Study on the Jordanian Commercial Banking Sector

  •  Zaher Abdel Fattah Al-Slehat    


Banks operate in an environment characterized by competition between banking service providers and the continuous development of financial technology. On this basis, the quality of banking services determines the success of banks. This study aims to test customer satisfaction as a mediating variable in the relationship between banking service quality and customer loyalty using the convenience sample method. Using the SmartPLS software, the data analysis and hypothesis test results show that the quality of banking service in all its dimensions positively affects customer loyalty. Moreover, customer satisfaction mediates such a relationship. Accordingly, the Jordanian commercial banking sector should focus on the tangibility dimension and influence customer satisfaction to promote customer loyalty.
