A Conceptual Framework for Successful E-commerce Smartphone Applications: The Context of GCC

by   Adel Bahaddad, et al.

Rapid expansion of online business has engulfed the GCC region. Such expansion causes competition among business entities, causing the need to identify the factors that the customers use to choose a suitable mobile business application. Instead of just focusing on the visitors/users of the application, a shift in focus towards transforming casual customers to loyal customers is needed. The IS Success Model, whose main constructs are Information Quality, Quality Systems, Service Quality, User Satisfaction, Intention to Use and Net Benefits, includes diversified indicators along with their measures. This research considers User Satisfaction, Intention to Use and Net Benefits constructs as it is, but modified System Quality, Information Quality and Service Quality constructs based on previous state-of-the-art literature. The developed theoretical model was further tested surveying 803 GCC participants. Responses were analyzed using exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis. Study reveals the significance of Service Quality (consisting of M-loyalty Building, Customer Chat and feedback, Help and technical support, and Credibility and Reliability Build) over Information Quality and System Quality, impacting the importance of User Satisfaction over the other constructs.
