Factors influencing e-marketplace adoption in agricultural micro-enterprises

Gregory J. Brush, Duncan McIntosh
2010 International Journal of Electronic Business  
This study draws on the Tornatzky and Fleischer (1990) adoption model to explore the motivations and barriers to e-marketplace adoption that agricultural micro-enterprises experience.  ...  Dominant motivations include the ability to exclude the agent middleman, a reduction in transaction costs, and market reach.  ...  For example, F2 who has not used the e-marketplace, has a very good working relationship with his agent, a strong preference for the agent payment protection and the value of the services provided by his  ...
