Abstract: This exploratory study expands knowledge concerning the perceptions of two groups of internet users, information searchers and e-shoppers, on the key e-shopping factors and intention to shop online. The findings suggest that the two groups of internet users showed significant differences in their perceptions of the following four e-shopping factors: product perception (product quality, price, and variety), e-shopping experience, prompt/reliable service, and online security risk. Further, product perception, e-shopping experience, online security risk, and consumer risk emerged as the factors that significantly impacted on intention to shop online.
