A survey was used to collect data to test the hypotheses of this study. 4,227 valid questionnaires were obtained on a sample of respondents located in the United Kingdom. Structural Equation ModellingModeling (SEM) was used to test the hypotheses. The results emphasiseemphasize the importance of managing customers according to their attitudes supporting the hypotheses of a mediation role of sales channels with regards value co-creation.
