This chapter analyses the impact of customer complaint behaviour and classifies potential types of behaviour after a dissatisfying incident. Besides the opportunity of contacting a company directly, three alternative options are discussed which can be utilised by customers to vent their frustration. Thereafter, four different traditional complaint channels are introduced. This part is followed by a definition of social networks as a potentially emerging complaint channel. The remaining part of this chapter emphasizes the importance of complaint channels and describes three scientific theories which are important for customer satisfaction analysis: justice theory, behaviour theory and attribution theory. Each theory is described in detail and linked to the context of the study.
