Web Interface and Consumers Buying Intention in E-Tailing: Results From an Online Experiment
This article empirically tests the influence of perceived atmospheric elements of an e-commerce website on consumers’ emotional and behavioral responses. Virtual atmosphere is considered as a multi dimensional construct integrating visual aesthetics, layout, and website social interactivity perception. The data was collected from a sample of Internet users who participated in an online survey. The main results show that all atmospheric factors have a positive impact on mood, which in turn strongly influence online purchase intentions. However, attitude toward the site was partially explained by atmospherics and did not impact purchase intentions.
