This research investigates the role of interactivity and service quality toward customer engagement (i.e., co-developing, influencing, augmenting, mobilizing) in the context of mobile e-commerce applications (apps). Based on a survey of 717 mobile e-commerce app users in Indonesia, the study utilizes a quantitative approach using Partial Least Squares-Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) to test the conceptual framework. The findings show that interactivity positively related to all forms of customer engagement behavior (i.e., co-developing, influencing, augmenting, mobilizing), and service quality moderates the relationships between interactivity on augmenting and mobilizing. This study offers a more detailed understanding of the role of interactivity and service quality in each dimension of customer engagement. As such, this study complements prior insights on value co-creation in a multi-stakeholder service system.
