Over a last few decades, unintended or unplanned buying has been a heated topic under study owing to its constructive and unconstructive impacts on buyers. Many authors concluded regret and switching intentions as after effects of post-purchase retaliation. So, considering the importance of the consumer loyalty and gratification in sustainability of players in the market, the focus of research on this topic is vital.
