BAŞYAZICIOĞLU, H. N. (2020). THE EVALUATION OF THE RELATIONSHIPS AMONG PERCEIVED RISK OF DELIVERY, ONLINE PURCHASE ATTITUDE, AND INTENTION OF CONSUMERS. Business & Management Studies: An International Journal, 8(4), 445–463. https://doi.org/10.15295/bmij.v8i4.1724


Although online shopping offers many benefits to consumers such as product variety, price comparison opportunity, space, and time convenience, it is seen that the online purchase intention of consumers is affected by the risks of online shopping. In the literature, the risks of online shopping have been examined in general, but it has been found that delivery risk, one of the essential elements of online shopping, has not been addressed in detail. Therefore, this study aims to examine the perceived delivery risks of consumers in online shopping. For this purpose, primary data was collected with a face-to-face survey method from 482 respondents. The confirmatory factor analysis determined that the perceived delivery risk consisted of four factors, namely product risk, non-delivery risk, financial risk, and time risk. In the second stage, the effects of these risks on online purchase attitude and intention were analysed with path analysis. Therefore, this study is thought to fill an essential gap in the literature and will guide future studies.
