Abstract
Namjena – Namjena ove disertacija je istraţiti ĉimbenike prihvaćanja elektroniĉke maloprodaje od strane potrošaĉa na hrvatskom trţištu i njen utjecaj na rast dodane vrijednosti za potrošaĉe. Oblikovanje/metodologija/pristup – Ova disertacija sjedinjuje svjetski poznat i priznat Model prihvaćanja tehnologije te vanjske ĉimbenike od utjecaja na potrošaĉevo prihvaćanje elektroniĉke maloprodaje (cijena i udobnost), a istraţivanje je provedeno anketnim upitnikom na uzorku od 1007 korisnika interneta. Rezultati – Empirijski rezultati pokazuju kako na percipiranu korisnost elektroniĉke maloprodaje u Hrvatskoj najveći utjecaj ima udobnost, nešto manji utjecaj ima percipirana jednostavnost korištenja, a najmanji utjecaj, iako statistiĉki znaĉajan, ima cijena. Na percepciju jednostavnosti korištenja najviše utjeĉe percipirana kvaliteta pruţenih informacija, zatim osigurana razina usluge, a najmanji utjecaj ima uĉinkovitost informacijskog sustava. Ograniĉenja/implikacije istraţivanja – Buduća istraţivanja se trebaju provesti u istom kontekstu, ali na drugaĉijem uzorku kako bi se potvrdili rezultati ovog istraţivanja. Predlaţe se i longitudinalno istraţivanje kako bi se dodatno provjerio predloţeni konceptualni model. Nadalje, predlaţe se ukljuĉivanje i drugih vanjskih ĉimbenika (povjerenje općenito; povjerenje prema trgovcima koji su već etablirani u tradicionalnoj maloprodaji i prema trgovcima koji posluju iskljuĉivo na internetu; istraţivanje po hrvatskim makroregijama itd.). Originalnost/vrijednost – Znanstvena originalnost i vrijednost se ogleda u tome što su elementi modela prihvaćanja tehnologije, uz odabrane vanjske ĉimbenike, po prvi puta primijenjeni u istraţivanju elektroniĉke maloprodaje na prostoru Republike Hrvatske, a zakljuĉci ovog istraţivanja se mogu upotrijebiti u poslovnoj zajednici prilikom odreĊivanja poslovnih strategija.

Purpose – This doctoral thesis explores consumer acceptance of e-tailing in Croatian market and its impact on consumer added value. Design/methodology/approach – This doctoral thesis incorporates renowned and widely applied Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and external factors such as price and convenience to examine consumer acceptance of e-tailing, based on the survey data collected from 1007 internet users in Croatia. Findings – Empirical results suggest that convenience is the most significant factor of influence on perceived usefulness of e-tailing in Croatia, followed by less significant influence of perceived ease of use. Price is found to have the least significant influence on perceived usefulness of e-tailing. Furthermore, information quality has the most significant influence on perceived ease of use of e-tailing, followed by slightly smaller influence of service quality. Information system quality is found to have the least significant influence on perceived ease of use. Research limitations/implications – Future research should be carried out with similar contextual dimensions to explore consumer acceptance of e-tailing with a different sample. A longitudinal research is also suggested in order to additionaly validate the proposed model. Additional external variables such as general trust, difference between trust in click-and-mortar and trust in pure-click merchants could be also examined. Originality/value – The findings of this research have theoretical and practical implications for both scientists and managers involved into e-retail business. Scientific originality and value is reflected through the first application of TAM in the research of e-tailing in Croatia. Conclusions of this research can be considered when creating business strategies.
