oa South African Journal of Information Management - Development of a socio-cognitive model for examining consumers' adoption of the Internet for the purchase of apparel
This research was undertaken to provide a conceptual framework from a social-cognitive perspective to study the behaviour of consumers regarding their adoption of the Internet for apparel purchasing. This framework provides an instrument for e-tailers and marketers to study the adoption process, provides a model for reducing the perceived risks in terms of on-line apparel purchasing and provides information regarding on-line user behaviour. Marketers and e-tailers can then develop suitable marketing strategies for Internet marketing of apparel, as well as assist their target market to make better purchasing decisions on the Internet.
