Abstract: A theoretical framework of trust in internet shopping and intentions of purchasing Licensed Sport Merchandise (LSM) online was tested through Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) procedures. Confirmatory Factor Analysis supported the measurement model, which included scales to measure Trust in Internet Shopping, Transferred Trust, Experienced Trust, Psychological Attachment, and Intentions of Purchasing LSM online. The SEM showed that Transferred Trust and Experienced Trust held positive and significant associations with Trust in Internet Shopping. Trust in Internet Shopping and Psychological Attachment were positively and significantly associated with Intentions of Purchasing LSM online and, together, explained 50% of the variance in purchase intention.
