Abstract

The continuous growth of e-commerce has stimulated great interest in generating theories and models for online consumer behavior. While studies on online consumer behavior are widespread, research on relating Internet browsing activities to online shopping behavior are scarce. This paper provides an exploratory analysis on the relationship between online browsing habits and consumers' pre-shopping effort, as one of the indicators of shopping behavior. The data used in this study was extracted from 88,637 users with more than half a million shopping instances from two large online retailers, Amazon and Walmart. Our findings provide insights for scholars to form hypotheses and design models or theories to explain online consumer behavior. Practitioners may also use the results of this study to make strategic decisions.
