Abstract: Abstract Online relationship marketing enables organisations to maintain and develop relationships with new and existing customers. In this study, we investigate online relationship marketing and the resulting loyalty for banks and their customers in an economy where face-to-face interactions are the norm. We introduce a model comprising relationship interaction and relationship quality and validate this for Jordanian banks and their SME customers. Increases in relational interaction were found to have a positive effect on the relationship quality dimensions of trust, satisfaction, and commitment. These then led to an increase in customer loyalty. Despite the preference in the economy for social presence in retail interactions, banks were able to establish effective online retail relationships with their SME customers.
