Theoretical contribution/Originality: This study contributes to developing and validating key dimensions of perceived security and their constructs. Mediation effect test results from TAM, which were perceived ease and perceived use, indicated that only the perceived usefulness variable significantly mediated the relationship between perceived security and intention to use B2C e-commerce websites. Perceived use's mediation was not supported. Practitioner/Policy implication: This research empirically supports the perceived security construct as a second-order construct involving confidentiality, availability, non-repudiation, and privacy. Research limitation/Implication: This study used data from Indonesian individuals, which may differ from other countries' characteristics. It may limit the research' finding generalization.
