Geographical distances in forming business relationships was reduced with the growth of
technologies and internet economy will grow robustly while e-commerce is playing a very
important role as it has accessible to the both large corporations and small companies. He

Sharma Vishnoi Nidhi and Khattri Varsha (2013) in their paper study of "ONLINE
found out that traditional market place became e-market place rapidly. From needle to ship,
everything being sold and bought on the internet. With the advent of internet and e-
commerce, a variety of new business models were coming into picture with innovative
techniques to sell their goods and services with excited deals and lucrative discounts. Here
authors had tried to find out the factors influencing the purchase deals and discount coupons
from online deal websites and also tried to study the preference towards mode of payment
and consumers’ trust while shopping. A sample of respondent was administered an e-
questionnaire and their responses were evaluated using statistical tool and technique. This
paper, thus, identifies that prospects quiet like to buy deals and discount coupons and
marketers should put their focus on increasing awareness about availability of goods and
services and building a feedback mechanism. Trust on security will lead to repeat purchase.
To study the trust factor, authors further studied the mode of payment preferred by
consumers. The most preferred mode of payment was bank transfer in case they had trust on

Vijay, Sai. T. & Balaji, M. S. (2009) in their journal paper “IMPACT OF

BEHAVIOUR: A STUDY OF CONSUMERS IN INDIA” revealed that Consumers all
over the world were increasingly shifting from the crowded stores to the one-click online
shopping format. However, in spite of the convenience offered, online shopping was far from
being the most preferred form of shopping in India. A survey among 150 internet users,
including both users and non-users of online shopping, was carried out to understand why
some purchase online while others do not. The results suggested that convenience and saving
of time drive Indian consumers to shop online; while security and privacy concerns dissuade
them from doing so.

Archana Shrivastava, Ujwal Lanjewar, (2011) in their paper “BEHAVIOURAL

APPROACH” noticed that in online buying, the rate of diffusion and adoption of the online
buying amongst consumers is still relatively low in India. In view of above problem an
empirical study of online buying behaviour was undertaken. Based on literature review, four
predominant psychographic parameters namely attitude, motivation, personality and trust
were studied with respect to online buying. The online buying decision process models based
on all the four parameters were designed after statistical analysis. These models were
integrated with business intelligence, knowledge management and data mining to design
behavioural business intelligence framework with a cohesive view of online buyer behaviour.
At last they concluded that as trust is a feeling of mutual acceptance between two
parties; it develops out of continuous physical interaction and leads to long-term
acceptance and commitment. So the important issue that need to be addressed is “trust”,
amongst the seller-buyer, the lack of which often acts as an impediment in the virtual market

ONLINE INVESTING” they found out in this environment, some traditional service
quality dimensions that determine customer satisfaction, such as the physical appearance of
facilities, employees, and equipment, and employees responsiveness and empathy are
unobservable. In contrast, trust may play a central role here in enhancing customer
satisfaction. Model trust as an endogenously formed entity that ultimately impacts customer
satisfaction and we elucidate the linkages between trust and other factors related to the
performance of the online service provider and to the service environment.

Burke (2002) has a done a research on “TECHNOLOGY AND THE CUSTOMER

STORE”. He noticed that trust is a key factor that determines the success of Business to
Consumer (B2C) e-commerce transactions. He identified several critical factors that
influence trust in the context of online shopping. He focused on available security measures
which assure online shoppers safety and great sales promotions and online deals which
stimulate customers to shop online.

Rakesh Kumar (2010), in his research paper titled “C” has stated that: The rises in
number of credit card providers and users have come of age. With these positively
influencing trends expected to continue in the near and far-future. The credit card industry is
likely to soar more than any industry segment. To add to that, easy and continuous payments'
structures with each passing day and with every bank poised to expand its network, the Indian
credit card user community is the biggest beneficiary. The intensifying competition prevalent
in the present day Indian credit card market has further fuelled the usage of credit cards in the
country like never-before. In an aim to overpower the peers and to sustain and prosper
themselves, the banks and financial institutions have started cutting down the interest rates
and offering lucrative deals.
Ankur Kumar Rastogi (2011) has done a research on “ONLINE SHOPPING: A
MODERN APPROACH OF BUYING” has stated that: Online shopping has become a
significant part of our life as a result of the growing internet and our busy schedule. This adds

us as it is time saving and also a wide range of products can be selected with the best offer.

Dr Syed Shah Alam, Zaharah Bakar, Dr Hishamuddin Bin Ismail, Mst. Nilufar Ahsan
(2008), in their research paper titled “ YOUNG CONSUMERS ONLINE SHOPPING:
AN EMPIRICAL STUDY” has stated that : The analytical results of our investigation
indicate relationships between young consumers’ perceptions of the factors that influence
their intention to buy through online. More specifically, consumers’ perceptions of the
customer service, reliability and trust of online purchasing exhibit significant relationships
with their online buying intention. Marketers need to realize that the online marketing
environment affects the way consumers view and develop relationships. In this context, to
add value to the online shopping experience and to build relationships, trust is everything.

Shweta Tanwar, (2009) has done a research on “ONLINE SHOPPING: A NEW

that: Online shopping has come up as a boon for all type of consumers and it has something
to offer for everyone. Despite of this fact that it was highly convenient and time saving and to
certain extent it was also cost cutting exercise as one need not to step out of his / her home for
doing shopping. The main area of concern was the limited internet usage and language
problem. A lot of stress need to be given on these two parameters so that this IT revolution
can be of use to everyone in India and then only it can be a success in true sense of terms.
Otherwise, it will just end up being a style statement of few who wants to be away from the
crowd and then it will lose its applicability in the real world.

EXPLORATORY STUDY”. She has stated that: online shopping is a recent phenomenon in
the field of e-business and is definitely going to be the future of shopping in India. Though
online shopping is very common outside India, its growth in Indian Market, which is a large
and strategic consumer market, is still not in line with the global market. The potential
growth of online shopping has triggered the idea of conducting a study on online shopping in
India. The study has used factor analysis, correlation and multiple regressions to analyse the
impact of various categories of factors and variables on online shopping behaviour of

Manish Dwivedi, Kumawat Mahesh & Verma Sanjeev, (2012), in their research paper
has stated that: For retailers in India, online shopping is gaining recognition as it entails many
benefits for them. Some of these include, No real estate costs, Enhanced customer service,
Mass customization, Global reach, Niche marketing and specialized stores. In the next 5
years, online retailing in India will strengthen even further. However, long-standing
sustainability directly depends on factors like changes in the market, innovations and
interactivity by market players. Owing to increased penetration of credit cards and easy
access of computing facilities to a wider population, Internet retailing in India has witnessed
a promising growth. Moreover, bargainhunting consumers are latching on this trend as
Internet retailers are known to offer products at special discounted prices compared to store-
based retailers.
