Examining consumers' intention, behavior, and beliefs in mobile banking adoption and continuous usage
Published inJyväskylä studies in business and economics
Changing consumer behavior continues to have a profound impact on digital banking adoption and prolonged usage in developed and emerging markets. Several factors influence the consumer decision journey when choosing any specific digital channel or combination of channels.

The most valuable findings indicate that the m-banking adoption and usage literature is fragmented and lacks a clear road map or agenda. The extant literature appears limited by its narrow focus on SMS banking in developing countries. More surprisingly, no studies address the use of m-banking applications via smartphones or tablets or consider the consequences of such usage. Self-congruence is significantly related to perceived value (PEVA) and addresses a critical gap in the extant literature, which does not seem to have analyzed the effect of self-congruence on m-banking continuous usage. Overall, PEVA is significantly associated with increased m-banking usage, and PEVA is a significant antecedent of the intention to use for consumers in a mature market. On a different note, the main motivation for the continuous usage of m- banking is convenience. The results also indicate positive changes in bank customers’ relationship commitment after using m-banking services. ...
