CHAPTER ONE

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
With the speedy development of technology and the increase in internet usage across the globe, people are no longer interested in word of mouth or physical interactions rather they prefer communicating and gathering of information through forum, chat rooms, blogs and new groups ( Fei 2011, 2011). Online business operations and e-commerce has inspired many businesses and companies to set up their business transactions over the internet. This singular act has made life easy for the common man. Recent data have shown that Nigeria has been ranked as number one in Africa and number eight in the world with the rate of sixty-three million internet users. Data for Facebook users alone rate up to sixteen million users in Nigeria. (Nigeria ranks No 1 in internet usage in Africa, 2016).
The internet is a platform for networking and also dissemination of information. One of the purposes of the internet is for purchasing of goods and services (Burrows, 2001). There are several websites that customers can access to purchase products that are for sale such sites are: Konga, Jumia, Asos and many more. Customers visit those websites, select the product, order the products, provide a location for delivery, and either make payment through credit cards or pay on delivery and those products gets delivered to the customer in the set location.
One of the cheapest ways entrepreneurs, marketers as well as companies could create an avenue in getting in contact with the huge customer base in a short span of time even in periods of world economic crisis is through online marketing (Insider, 2015). Online shopping has been revealed to offer additional satisfaction to modern day consumers who are in search of speed and convenience (Yu, T.& Wu.G,, 2007).
In most cases, customer purchase behavior can be regarded as the loyalty of the customer to that particular product or goods (H. Jr. Juhl, 2002.). This customer purchase behavior can be
9
based on different elements such as product quality, trust, brand image, convenience, and price of that product which can also influence the customers’ behavior (J. J. Joseph Cronin, 2000). Facts have shown that research has been performed on the same topic in western countries, but very little research has been applied in Nigeria. For businesses online, it is important to know what factors influences online consumers purchase behavior when purchasing goods over the internet.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE RESEARCH PROBLEM
Most potential consumers who purchase goods online are over a million plus and they are most times online anytime of the day regardless of where they are located. Since there are so many marketers who want their goods to be bought by potential consumers, it is very crucial that those marketers or companies understand what are their consumer needs and wants in regards to how competitive the business environment is. Since consumers are unable to have physical contact with their online marketers, it is important that online marketers examine and detect those certain factors that influence online consumers purchase behavior. Also, in order for online marketers to maintain an increase customer base level, it is important for them to know what extent certain factors that will be considered in this topic influence consumers purchase behavior. The problem of this research is: TO KNOW THE EXTENT TO WHICH CERTAIN FACTORS INFLUENCE NIGERIAN ONLINE CONSUMER PURCHASE BEHAVIOUR.

11
also benefit online marketers, customers that purchase online and those that do not purchase as well. Another significance of this study is to know what factors influences consumers purchasing behavior when purchasing goods online.
1.7 SCOPE OF THE STUDY

The scope of the research will include places such as banks, shopping complex areas, restaurants and the university campus in both Yola and Jimeta towns in Adamawa state. This research would be performed and completed during the span of two to three months in order to gather, evaluate and produce result
1.8 LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY
There are problems and limitations that do arise in every research. These limitations could reduce the parse and efficiency of the study. One of those limitations was limited access to literature articles due to the limited time allotted for the completion of the study. Another limitation was the scope of the research. Five factors were selected amongst other online purchasing factors and only the two towns of Adamawa state ( Yola and Jimeta), which is too inconsequential to correctly access consumer online purchase behavior of Nigerian consumers. The unwillingness of Nigerian consumers to consent in answering the questions was another limitation that occurred in the cause of this research.
