A Comparison of Britain and China

Fanke PENG, Ni AN, Alessandra Vecchi

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

Adopting the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) - perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use (Davis, Bagozzi, & Waeshaw, 1989) and Customer Buying Decision Process (Engel, Kollat, & Blackwell, 1968), this research examines the role of culture in influencing online shopping use, comparing differences across two continents and countries: Britain and China. Qualitative data obtained through the semi-structured focus group interviews was analysed using content analysis, which involves examining the accumulated data for ideas and constructs that have been pre-determined. The TAM held for the U.K. This project also explores whether the relationships hold for the emerging Chinese market.
