Predictors of Continuous Intention to Use Mobile Payment Platforms in a Typical Developing Economy Context: A Literature Review (Published)

This paper aims to review literature on the predictors of continuous intention to use mobile payment platforms in a typical developing economy context. Extant literatures reveal that the unified theory of use and technology is the most widely used theory to explain continuous intention behavior in financial technology marketing literature but few studies have extended the theory to accommodate other variables and investigate the nexus among these variables especially on continuous intention to use mobile platforms from a developing economy like Nigeria. Also, the existing frameworks and models developed in advanced economies may not be suitable for developing mobile payment platforms usage behavior in Nigeria because of its peculiarities. The major importance of this study is to review extant literature on continuous usage of mobile payment technology and make available a comprehensive and robust framework for prospective researchers in this area, which will guide and direct their studies. The framework is premised on five key constructs- performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence, facilitating condition, intrinsic motivation, price value and prior experience. More so, the proposed conceptual framework is capable of providing insight for developing financial technology-related policies.
