Based on a random sample of academicians, demographic, attitudinal, and behavioral characteristics of Internet banking (IB) users and non-users were examined. The analyses revealed significant differences between the demographic profiles and attitudes of users and non-users. IB users were further investigated, and three sub-segments were defined according to a set of bank selection criteria. Finally, based on the similarities between various Web-based bank services, four homogeneous categories of services were defined.

    ABSTRACT: This research aims to explore whether Jordanian customers’ perceptions on intention and use of Internet banking services varies according to their demographic characteristics. According to prior literature, there are five demographic factors; namely: age, gender, income, education and customers’ experience with the computer and Internet. These have been considered in the current study. The required data was collected from field survey questionnaires administered to a convenience sample of Jordanian banking customers. The main statistical results indicated that the customers’ perceptions on intention and usage of Internet banking are significantly different according to age, education, and their experience with the computer and Internet. Yet, there was no significant difference that could be attributed to gender. The results also suggest that even though the vast majority of the respondents have a higher willingness to adopt Internet banking, the actual usage rates of the most Internet banking (IB) services are too low. Theoretical contributions, implications, limitations and future research directions are also outlined.
