This study examines antecedents to fintech use intention to determine which antecedents can provide a parsimonious, yet accurate explanation.
Meta-analyses based on 42 samples estimate how seven antecedents are associated with fintech use intentions. Subsequent analyses utilize meta-analyses to estimate a regression analysis to simultaneously estimate the relationship between the antecedents and fintech use intention. Relative weight analysis then determined each antecedent's utility.
Hedonic motivation, price value, performance expectations and social influence had the strongest relationships with intention to use fintech. Further analyses found a parsimonious model with only three antecedents was nearly as predictive as the full seven antecedent model. Four moderating variables were examined but played minor roles.
Common method variance may impact the findings because all primary studies used cross-sectional surveys.
Very few measures (i.e. three) can robustly explain fintech use intention. When these measures cannot be readily influenced, alternatives are also presented.
This is the first integrative review of fintech use intentions. The authors integrate what is currently known about fintech use intentions and then provide a robust model for fintech use intentions that both researchers and practitioners can utilize.
