ABSTRACT

Recently, group purchasing model is developing rapidly and impressively in Vietnam as a type of online shopping. This study aims at investigating the motivations that influence consumers' intention to purchase on group purchasing sites.

Keywords: Group-purchasing, Group-purchasing site, social inference, satisfaction in price discount, perceived playfulness.
