The Role of Other Customers During Self-Service Technology Failure

Lack of interpersonal contact is associated with a higher risk of failure of self-service technologies(SST), and thus, participation of other customers is especially meaningful during SST failure. We investigate two antecedents of customer helping during service failures - presence of others and tie strength - and suggest that the motive behind helping is self-centered rather than other-centered.
