The rise of social commerce has brought several new challenges for firms and reshaped the way people purchase products and services. Firms are struggling to co-create value with customers to identify their needs and offer innovative products. To address these challenges, this study proposes a value co-creation circle and explores the key factors for developing a successful value co-creation circle on social commerce platforms. A case study of a taxi company in Taiwan was conducted. Data was collected from face-to-face interviews with the managers and analysed using Google Analytics. The proposed value co-creation circle not only creates benefits from network externality by the growth in membership, but also enhances service quality in the social commerce platform. This study explores a new perspective of the value co-creation circle in the social commerce environment that allows practitioners to develop a value circulation by network externality and co-create value with customers.
