A significant Chi-Square, however, might be an artifact of the sample size (e.g., Kline, 1998); thus the other fit indices are more indicative of the model’s fit. In most cases, these indices are within the recommended range for both groups in both sites. In general, participants exhibited a tendency to prefer sites that belonged to local firms and which displayed information in their vernacular language. One Israeli site (Opus) and one US site (Barnes and Noble) replaced the two local Australian bookstores in the Australian study. Figure 3 displays the average scores on the model’s variables for the two bookstores. The scores are on a 1 (low) to 7 (high) scale.

In contrast, demographics associated with consumer price sensitivity and EDLP pricing matter more in low quality categories. Also, the extent to which the retailer serves a customer base containing less wealthy and more elderly households and operates in less competitive markets improves the performance of the store brand. As a sales manager you do not always get the performance you want out of your sales team. For this they need to bank in the sun, to get their temperatures right.

The study did not systematically control for “size” and “reputation” of the store sites although the summary information was intended to generate perceptions of size and reputation. The shopping sites were ordered in alphabetical order on the introductory web page, but participants were free to visit the sites in any order. Participants were required to visit all sites in both studies. In addition, we asked the Israeli group whether they would prefer shopping in Hebrew web sites and in Web sites which belong to Israeli firms. The book shopping and the airline ticket purchasing activities represent two of the three top online purchase categories according to a recent survey (Fox, 1998, p.11).
