Abstract

Purpose

The recent growth of Islamic bank (IB) assets in Indonesia has been mainly driven by government interventions rather than the organic development on the demand side. A novel approach to attract new consumers, increase market share and accelerate its development is the need of the hour. This study aims to propose beyond-money framing that promotes the Shari’ah and social dimensions of IB’s products on top of its contemporary marketing strategy. This paper examines whether this technique can advance IBs selection.

Design/methodology/approach

This paper uses the (online) laboratory experiment involving 192 high- and low-literate participants from Generation Z (Gen Z). Using difference tests and Logit regression, this paper examines the impact of beyond-money framing on customers decision-making.

Findings

Beyond-money framing has a significant impact in influencing customers decisions to select profit-and-loss sharing (PLS) products offered by IBs. The effect of the framing accelerates in the high-literate customers.

Research limitations/implications

The contract examined is only the PLS one (mudharabah). Respondents are also restricted to Gen Z. This study does not separate the effect of Shari’ah and social aspects from beyond money framing.

Practical implications

To attract new customers, IBs should emphasise their products’ social and Shari’ah features rather than relying solely on a low-price strategy.

Originality/value

To the best of the authors’ knowledge, this paper is the first study proposing the framing strategy for IBs and examining its impact on IB’s product acceptance in Indonesia.
