Summary Self-service technologies empower consumers to do things for themselves that they could not do before. In the case of consumers’ unsatisfactory encounters with self-service technologies, however, consumers feel powerless. Self-service technology powerlessness is defined as consumers’ feelings of SST dominance. To the authors’ knowledge, this construct has not been investigated previously in the service domain. This paper examines self-service technology powerlessness, and proposes and tests a model of its antecedents and consequences in unsatisfactory encounters with self-service technologies. Consumers’ dissatisfaction with the attributes of self-service technologies was found to be related to consumers’ perceptions of powerlessness. Exit and negative word were found to be outcomes of it.
