Though online shopping is very common outside Malaysia, its growth in Malaysian Market, which is a large and strategic consumer market, is still not in line with the global market. The present research paper has used exploratory study to highlight the various factors and variables impacting the behavior of consumers towards on-line shopping in Malaysia. Data was collected from students’ samples in Malaysia. SEM (Structural Equation Model) was used to test the hypotheses and confirmed the fit of the model.
