Abstract
The purpose of the study was to examine the effect of e-bill payment on customer satisfaction in Uganda with Stanbic Bank Uganda Limited as the case study. The study involved 5 managers, 10 Middle Level staff involved in E-banking operations, 5 Head office (Stanbic) E-banking operative staff, 8 Customer relationship officers attending walk-in-customers and 63 Customers of Stanbic Bank Uganda Limited. A cross-sectional approach, as well as a combination of quantitative and qualitative data analysis techniques was employed in this study. Quantitative data analysis techniques involved the use of descriptive statistics such as frequencies and percentages to summarize responses on issues of E-bills payment impact on customer satisfaction while the Pearson’s correlation coefficient was used to establish the relationship between dimensions of E-bills payment and customer satisfaction as study objectives. Findings indicate that there is a moderate positive relationship between e-bill payment and customer satisfaction; (r=0.266 p=0.016 n=82). The relationship is statistically significant at 95% confidence level since p-value (Sig.) is less than 0.050 (=0.000). This implies that improvements in e-bill payment factors shall be related to improvements in customer satisfaction. Findings from descriptive statistics indicated that on average the respondents agreed to the statement that e-bill payment has an effect on customer satisfaction which included capacity to handle a greatly enhanced volume and of payments, far lesser time per bill handles, increased efficiency and accuracy and reduced payment concerns.
