Various studies have examined the effects of factors on online attitudes and behavior. By applying the Technology Acceptance Model, this study is focused on investigating factors that affect customers online purchasing behavior. In particular, this study examines i) effects of such factors as product information, price, convenience, and perceived product or service quality on perceived usefulness; ii) effects of convenience, perceived product or service quality, and desire to shop without a salesperson on perceived ease of use; iii) effects of perceived ease of use on perceived usefulness; iv) effects of perceived ease of use and usefulness on intentions to shop online; and v) effects of trust on purchase intentions.

The data collected online and offline were analyzed using factor and regression analysis, and structural equation modeling. The results of this study indicate that perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, and trust had a statistically significant effect on behavioral intention to shop on the Internet.
