After a consumer makes a decision he/she expects satisfaction to occur from his/ her decision. If the product /service does not meet his/her requirements, then dissatisfaction might occur. At this point the marketer may lose the chance to make this customer a loyal user. That’s why savvy marketers make sure that their consumer is completely satisfied and does not develop any negative post-purchase feelings.

Likewise mobile technology plays an important role for marketers at the post - purchase stage. Mobile services can improve post-purchase customer service experiences. For instance, consumers can receive updates on the order status for items purchased. Moreover, Customer support can be enhanced by delivering more interactive content (e.g., images, video), to consumers regardless of their location

Marketers can prevent cognitive dissonance by using mobile marketing tools such as following up the customers via push notifications and sending them promotions, free trails, and etc..

Consumers’ willingness to use mobile services at the post- purchase stage depends on forming beliefs that these mobile marketing services will offer benefits
