In order to develop the model and test the hypotheses, structure equation modeling (SEM) was done through AMOS.FindingsFindings indicate that all of the first latent constructs are significant where E-CS and E-CL (dependent variables) are influenced by E-SQ (independent variable). Using SEM, statistically fit structural model was developed on the basis of confirmatory factor analysis. The analysis shows that there is a strong positive relation between E-SQ and E-CS and E-SQ and E-CL.Practical implicationsAsian markets have been identified as the fastest growing e-commerce markets in present era.
