CHAPTER 2 LITERATURE REVIEW 2.0 INTRODUCTION Within the internet banking services, researcher has indicated various determinants or drivers that had a positive effect on factor influences the acceptance the decision. Three widely used models or theories are reviewed and discussed in relation to internet banking services. These are theory of Theory of Reasoned Action (TRA), Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB), Diffusion of Innovation Theory (DOI) and Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). In the chapter, these theories are reviewed from prior studies and an attempt is made to identify the most suitable framework for this research. 2.1 Theory of reasoned action The theory of reasoned action is developed in the late 1960s by Martin Fishbein and…show more content…

Based on these perceptions, an individual may decide to accept or reject an innovation (Agarwal & Prasad, 1997). Roger’s (1983) postulated that innovation is more likely to be adopted: I. Relative advantage - the degree to which an innovation is perceived to be better than idea it supersedes. II. Compatible - the degree to which an innovation is consistent with the existing values. III. Complex - the degree to which an innovation is hard to understand and use IV. Trialled - the degree to which an innovation can be experimented V. Observed - the degree to which the result of an innovation is
