Motivational Characteristics of Online Shopping and Buying: Impulsive and Compulsive Buying in E-Stores

This study examines the psychological constructs that should have motivational impact on online consumer behavior. Our goal is to identify online consumer groups, especially to describe psychological characteristics of compulsive buyers. We focus on clinical symptoms of online impulsive and compulsive buying based on Kukar-Kinney, Ridgway and Monroe (2009).
