MetadataShow full item record
The goal of this study was to examine the relationship between online evaluations, web design, and purchasing intent in the context of online commerce. Using both qualitative and quantitative methods, researchers have discovered that user review on the Internet is a significant tool for reducing information disparity, which in turn influences customer confidence and purchasing decisions. Concerns, such as a lack of credibility and the potential for erroneous evaluations, necessitate a more robust level of involvement. In this context, site design is emerging as a major moderating influence, with the ability to improve buy confidence and interest by giving an aesthetically pleasing appearance and intuitive navigation. This study sent questionnaires to eighty respondents using the Partial Least Square method, examining the validity and reliability of the questionnaires and the association between factors. In addition, the research has implications for management that could aid the e-commerce business in the development of customer-centric platforms, ethical content initiatives, and technological and design innovations that break new ground. The findings also provide a framework for future research, including investigation of the consequences of phony reviews, crosscultural studies, and the development of technologies to filter reviews. Overall, the study gives important insight into how the interaction between online reviews and web design affects the online purchasing experience. In addition, the study offers guidance for creating best practices in this dynamic and competitive business.
