A prerequisite in a competitive market environment is a result-oriented market strategies that are customer service oriented. Good service delivery channels have been considered as relevant in this regard. This study evaluates the effect of spread of bank branches and utilization of e-payment system in form of sales point banking on return on equity of banks. Banks in Nigeria were sampled and both primary and secondary data were used. Findings from Panel regression model estimate show a strong support for more branch establishment as a relevant market channel to increase performance of banks.
