Intention to shop online among university students in Jordan

As the Internet has grown dramatically every year since the beginning of the 1990s, and the diffusion of online buying transactions are readily accepted by consumers in some countries, in others consumers seem to be less accepting. On-line commerce through Internet is obtaining attention in Jordan moreover, until today we can observe the limitation for using the on-line shopping. The aim of this research is to study the acceptance level of internet shopping among higher learning institution particularly in Jordan. The current study investigates possible factors that influence consumer Internet intention towards students’ online shopping behavior in Jordanian university, the first largest university in Jordan. Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) by Davis et al. (1989) theory has been applied on this study. Several factors such as usefulness and ease of use are become important predictors toward attitude toward on-line shopping that influence students buying intention were analyzed. A test model of theory was analyzed from 146 students. Since no previous research investigated the factors of acceptance level of internet shopping in Jordan, this study gave new insight on the role of factors in internet intention, and the factors that may impact a broader acceptance and development of on-line shopping in Jordan. I will present and discuss my finding and identify changes that will be required for broader acceptance and diffusion of Internet intention in Jordan, so we can have clear picture and understanding of the acceptance level of internet shopping in Jordan.We find the relationship between perceived usefulness and attitude was positive ( = 0.710, p<0.000) and there was also a positive relationship between perceived usefulness and intention to shop ( = 0.985, p<0.000) thus H1 and H2 of the study was supported. As was predicted there was also a positive relationship between perceived ease of use and attitude ( = 0.270, p<0.000) giving support for H3. Attitude was also found to be positively related to intention to shop online ( = 0.937, p<0.000) giving support for H4
