Towards successful e-payment systems: An empirical identification and analysis of critical factors

This research aims to explore the factors relating to e-payment system to be implemented where electronic processes enable the facilitation of online transactions. A secondary analysis revealed six factors which are argued to be 'critical' for customer adoption of these systems. The findings were further augmented by an online survey of 155 respondents where the perceived importance of the critical factors were correlated through: security, trust, perceived advantage, assurance seals, perceived risk and usability. The results demonstrate that three of the critical factors were necessary (security, advantage, web assurance seals) and three were relatively sufficient (perceived risk, trust and usability) through customer intentions to adopt an e-payment system. The study provides a valid overall awareness that these critical factors are important in designing a successful e-payment system.

The contribution of intellectual property rights obtained by small and medium-sized enterprises to economic and technological development : policies to be implemented
Sözer, F. Şebnem; Yalçıner, Uğur Gürşad; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2006)
This thesis analyses the utilization of intellectual property rights (IPRs) by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), their contribution to economic and technological development and policies to be implemented for the SMEs to make more use of the system in order to reach a desired level of growth. Small and medium-scaled enterprises constitute more than 90 % of all firms almost all over the world and a substantial proportion of employment and turnover. This fact bares the necessity for the SMEs to make ...
Topology-Aware Cooperative Data Protection in Blockchain-Based Decentralized Storage Networks
Yang, Siyi; Hareedy, Ahmed; Calderbank, Robert; Dolecek, Lara (2020-06-01)
The continuous rise of the blockchain technology is moving various information systems towards decentralization. Blockchain-based decentralized storage networks (DSNs) offer significantly higher privacy and lower costs to customers compared with centralized cloud storage associated with specific vendors. Coding is required to retrieve data stored on failing components. While coding solutions for centralized storage have been intensely studied, those for DSNs have not yet been discussed. In this paper, we pr...
Facilitating the adoption of e-payment systems: Theoretical constructs and empirical analysis
Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Hackney, Ray (2010-05-04)
Purpose – The emergence of online transactions, enabled through internet media, has led to an increase in the availability of electronic payment (e-payment) systems. This research aims to investigate, through theoretical constructs (technology acceptance model, theory of reasoned action) and an empirical analysis, the critical factors that may ensure consumer adoption of these facilities. Design/methodology/approach – This research study mainly uses the deductive approach to consider secondary sources and p...
Investigation of Interaction, Online Support, Course Structure and Flexibility as the Contributing Factors to Students' Satisfaction in an Online Certificate Program
YÜKSELTÜRK, ERMAN; Yıldırım, Zahide (2008-01-01)
The purpose of the study is to investigate some of the factors that contribute to satisfaction of participants in an online Information Technologies Certificate Program (ITCP). The program includes eight courses and lasts four semesters. The sample consisted of 30 participants who enrolled to the program and 8 instructors who gave the courses in this program in 2004-2005. The data was collected through both qualitative and quantitative methods. An online questionnaire was used to gather data on participants...
Implementation of a wireless streaming system for universal multimedia access
Ünal, Halim Ünsem; Akar, Gözde; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
This thesis describes a universal multimedia access system and its implementation details. In the context of this document, universal multimedia access means accessing multimedia content over ubiquitous computer networks, using different computing platforms. The computer networks involve both wired and wireless networks, and computing platforms involve wired PC, mobile PC and personal digital assistants (PDA). The system is built on a client/server architecture. Video data is H.263 coded and carried over RT...
