  7. 7. 7 ABSTRACT There are two basic objectives in this research: (1) to identify factors that influence the intention of using online electronics shopping, (2) propose suggestions, recommendations for service suppliers in designing function, services in order to meet consumer’s requirements. The research is conducted through two stages which are qualitative research and quantitative research. In qualitative research, six factors are determined to have impact on the intention of using online electronics shopping, including: (1) perceived price, (2) perceived convenience, (3) perceived easy of use, (4) perceived enjoyment, (5) social influence, (6) perceived risk of products/services use. In the model the impact on the intention of 3 demographic variables is also examined, which are gender, income, and age. The quantitative research is conducted through the questionnaire. Multiple regression analysis is used in the research through SPSS 16.0 with the sample quantity of 467. As can be seen from results of multiple regression analysis, the research model is consistent with survey data, hypotheses are all accepted. Hypotheses about factors: perceived price, perceived convenience, perceived easy of use, social influence, and perceived enjoyment have positive effect on the intention of use, which is all accepted. Hypothesis of perceived risk of product use, which has the negative impact on the use intention of online consumers, is also accepted. Research results help service providers have better understanding about factors that influence the use intention of online consumers. This can be the orientation of design and development of function, services meeting consumer’s requirements. Besides, contributions have been made as scientific literature in the sector of online shopping by building the theoretical model explains factors affecting use intention of consumers in shopping for electronic items. It is helpful in giving a better understanding of Vietnam market for researchers.
  8. 8. Chapter 1. Introduction In chapter 1, the necessity of the research is presented, which states the objectives that the research aims at, the research scope, and also the limitations and the structure of the research. 1.1 Rationales for Chosen Topic Internet nowadays is not only the communication network but also a global means of transaction for consumers. With the rapid growth over the recent years, internet has become the popular means for communication, service and trade (Andriole, 2010). Internet has changed the traditional way of shopping. Consumers are no longer bound to time and place; they can shop products and services anywhere at anytime (Ratchford et al., 2007). Taking the advantage along with the rapid development of the internet in Vietnam, domestic consumers have become familiar with online shopping. In Vietnam, by the end of 2012, there have been 68% of websites allow orders and 10.5% has the online payment function (Ho and Chen, 2013). Goods introduced on the website are relatively diverse and rich, in which there has been a significant increase in the percentage of websites introducing electronic products compared to previous years, from 32.6% in 2010 to 47.5% in 2011. This reflects the fact that for electronic items, consumers have become familiar with the selection of items and shops online, thus not having a website would be a large disadvantage for firms doing business with this kind of item (Mai and Tuan, 2012). In addition, in recent years, the ratio of internet users has also increased rapidly. These statistics above indicate that the growth of online shopping sites, especially websites for electronic items has not been developed similarly with the development of internet in Vietnam. Consequently, a study on shopping for electronic items online is an essential need in supporting firms to meet consumer’s demands. Although there have been many theories, research models in the world now to explain factors affecting behaviour and acceptance of internet users shopping online, based on the data, until now, there has not been a study finding the answers for matters related to the major factors affecting the intention of using service to shop electronic items online. Besides, the application of a theoretical model in the world to Vietnam can be not
  9. 9. 9 appropriate due to the specific conditions of economics, culture and society (Pham et al., 2013). Therefore, it is necessary to study modern research model in the world, based on the domestic studies recently in order to build a consistent model for Vietnam’s conditions. The topic “Studying factors affecting the intention of shopping electronics online” is conducted to solve the issue. 1.2 Research Background Since E-commerce came into being, it has quickly drawn public attention as well as the business community and researchers (Hong and Zhu, 2006; Scupola, 2009; Grandón et al., 2011; Campbell et al., 2013). Recent years, electronic trading is still a potential sector for the expansion and development of the economy. E-commerce is the huge resource which is impossible to be used up when it is exploited as natural resources; moreover, in the era of extremely fast information technology and telecommunications development, it is getting increasingly richer and more diverse. In Vietnam, e-commerce has started to emerge in recent years. However, the growth is still modest. The matter here is why the availability and application of e-commerce in Vietnamese firms are slow in the era of explosive information technology today (Pham et al., 2011; Van Huy et al., 2012). The actual state of application of information technology and e-commerce of small and medium enterprises in Vietnam: is very vague in understanding e-commerce. In a survey on 375 enterprises conducted by Department of Commerce, Ho Chi Minh City University, there are 74% of enterprises using email, 88% of enterprises using internet to seek for information. However, as said by enterprises, they have had difficulties in applying e-commerce in operation due to lack of understanding about product information presentation, content edit, website operation and system management such as server, bandwidth etc., the results from survey on e-commerce of over 2,000 enterprises in 5 large cities by VCCI in 2005 are very limited: 7.3% says “do not know about e-commerce”, although the ratio of internet connection is high (90%), ratio of having a website is low (71.1%), the majorities use internet to send and receive email, not to assist business. These figures above are really modest results and reflect the actual state of application of information technology and e-commerce by small and medium enterprises.
  10. 10. 1.3 Research Aim and Objectives The objectives of this dissertation are as follows:  To review the suitability and application of e-business in Vietnam and in online shopping of electronic products in Vietnam  To identify factors influence the intention of using online shopping of electronic products in Vietnam’s customers.  To propose recommendations, suggestions for Mainetti Vietnam in design function and services shopping online for electronic products to build effective e-business strategy. 1.4 Research Significant Contributions have been positively made theoretically and practically in the sector of online shopping in Vietnam. Contribution to theory: E-commerce in general and online shopping in particular are still new sectors in Vietnam, thus it is necessary to have studies theoretically to orient the practical activities. This study has contributed one more scientific literature in the field of online shopping through the building of a theoretical model to explain factors affecting the intention of consumers in shopping online for electronics goods in Vietnam. Contribution to the practice  By determining factors that influence the intention of using online shopping for electronics items, electronics suppliers have been provided with a more specific perspective of consumers in using online shopping. Service suppliers can also take recommendations of the research as references to strengthen their competitiveness in satisfying consumer’s needs.  A new research direction is provided to service suppliers in implementing similar researches for other goods such as book, movie… Thus, online shopping service in the conditions of Vietnam particularly and in developing countries generally can be more complete.
