    How about this: '(I think) they have the right to receive the service they pay for, and (naturally)(of course) I must provide that service to their satisfaction.'

    This way makes perfect sense to me:
    "I thought they had the right to ask for the service they paid for
    and naturally I had the duty to do a service for their satisfaction"

    The use of 'think/thought' and have/had depends on the context.
    You could say 'provide a service'.
    And it is 'to their satisfaction'.
