Factors Influencing the Adoption of Internet Banking in Tunisia

Wadie Nasri


The purpose of this paper is to determine those factors that influence the adoption of internet banking services in
Tunisia. A theoretical model is provided that conceptualizes and links different factors influencing the adoption
of internet banking. A total of 253 respondents in Tunisia were sampled for responding: 95 were internet bank
users, 158 were internet bank non users. Factor analyses and regression technique are employed to study the
relationship. The results of the model tested clearly that use of internet banking in Tunisia is influenced most
strongly by convenience, risk, security and prior internet knowledge. Only information on online banking did not
affect intention to use internet banking service in Tunisia. The results also propose that demographic factors
impact significantly internet banking behaviour, specifically, occupation and instruction. Finally, this paper
suggests that an understanding the factors affecting intention to use internet banking is very important to the
practitioners who plan and promote new forms of banking in the current competitive market.
