报告简介:
Social shopping (s-shopping), the use of social media to support electronic commerce, has become pervasive nowadays. This paper aims to investigate into an important type of consumer behaviour that could generate considerable economic values: impulsive purchase. Specifically, we focus on the role of peer influence. Social influence theory posits that the process via which peers change a consumer’s behaviour can be interpreted along two dimensions: informational and normative. Furthermore, drawing from literature, source credibility and social support are proposed as the antecedent factors of the influencing processes in this context. Via a survey of s-shopping participants in Sina Weibo, 303 responses were obtained to empirically test the research model. The results indicate that peers’ expertise and trustworthiness are significantly related to both types of social influence they could exert on a consumer. Further, consumers’ exchange of informational and emotional social support significantly facilitate social influence among them. This study contributes to both s-shopping and impulsive purchase literature by revealing the role of peer influence in consumers’ impulsive consumptions in the s-shopping setting. The practical implications are also illustrated in the paper.
