With the increased popularity of mobile devices, hotels and online travel agencies have started focusing on mobile hotel booking (MHB) in recent years. However, there has been limited research on users" loyalty intentions toward MHB technology. This research attempted to provide an integrated theoretical model that examines the determinants of MHB loyalty. The proposed model, which incorporates personalization, privacy concern, trust, perceived risk, and loyalty, was tested via structural equation modeling (SEM) by using data collected from 396 MHB users. The study results demonstrated that personalization is a strong predictor of MHB users" privacy concerns, trust, and risk perceptions. In addition, privacy concern had a significant impact on trust, and trust significantly influenced perceived risk. Finally, the results revealed that trust and perceived risk were associated with loyalty. This study provides valuable theoretical contributions for researchers and practical implications for online travel agencies, hotel operators and hospitality technology vendors.

Purpose This paper aims to examine whether a customer’s perceptions of hotel tablet apps serve as determinants of customers’ behavioral intention in terms of the app’s ease of use, usefulness, credibility and subjective norm. It also explored age and gender as moderators of the relationships between these determinants and customers’ behavioral intention as well as customers’ likelihood of using specific app functions across age and gender. Design/methodology/approach A research model, grounded i...
Purpose The purpose of this study is to propose and test an extended version of technology acceptance model (TAM) to examine consumers’ acceptance of radio frequency identification (RFID) cashless payment systems in the hospitality industry. Design/methodology/approach A comprehensive structural model was developed by adding two additional constructs to original TAM, namely, self-efficacy and perceived risk. A self-administered online questionnaire was used to collect the data of the study from ...
A number of frameworks have been prescribed for online retailers, but still there exists little consensus regarding the amount of information and the level of customization needed to optimize customers' satisfaction and their purchase intention, and thereby increase sales performance. Against this backdrop, this study aims to contribute to the current practical and theoretical discussions regarding the most effective ways to design and implement online retailers' website features by empirically ...

Customer loyalty or repeat purchasing is critical for the survival and success of any store. By focusing on online stores, this study investigates the repeat purchase intention of experienced online buyers based on means-end chain theory and prospect theory. In the research model, both utilitarian value and hedonic value are hypothesised to affect repeat purchase intention positively. Perceived risk is hypothesised to affect repeat purchase intention negatively and moderate the effects of utilit...

While the Internet drives the first transition of sales channels from physical stores to web storefronts, it is mobile devices like smartphones that provide the mobility and ubiquity wired desktop computers lack and that enable the second transition from e-retailing to m-retailing. Unlike the first transition that has been well studied in the literature, the follow-up transition from e-retailing to m-retailing has been under-explored. In this paper, we examine this transition by studying the tim...
