Abstract

Concerning the digitalism, globalization and competition; offering innovative products or services starts to become a critical issue for banks. Banks adapt its technological infrastructure for mobile banking applications to serve in more efficient and valuable way to their existing and potential customers. Unlike with the western countries, mobile technologies usage in developing countries have skipped lots of steps and become so popular. So for, one of the emerging market was chosen for the data collection and data were collected via internet survey with 451 participants. The effects of innovation characteristics (compatibility, ease of use, perceived usefulness, observability, perceived risk), consumer innovativeness and consumer perceived brand innovativeness on consumer innovation adoption were investigated in a holistic model. The results suggested that innovation characteristics had the most impact on consumer innovation adoption. Among these characteristics, compatibility and observability were most influential factors. Consumer innovativeness also affected adoption of innovations. However, contrary to the expectations, consumer perceived brand innovativeness’ effect on adoption was not supported. Future research directions and managerial implications were also given.
