Following the trend, the e-wallet providers quickly connect with the banks to develop banking applications activities. As e-wallet is closely linked to online transaction, the trust of risk issue is prominent whereby most studies present a challenge in providing e-wallet solutions to encourage user acceptance.

The analysis started with distribution of the questionnaire and getting the factors involved by adopting Exploratory Factor Analysis. Structural equation modelling and existing technology acceptance model is used in order to determine the significant factors that been accepted by the users among young generation. Results found that there are several factors that have significant relationship with the acceptance of e-wallet platform, which are behavioral intention, perceived privacy risk, perceived usefulness, trust, perceived overall risk, and perceived performance risk. More respondents should be selected in the future to give their opinion on this e-wallet issue. Besides that, more factors should be investigated in order to provide in depth view of e-wallet to the providers and consumers.</p> Nurul Nabilah Mohd Razif Masnita Misiran Hasimah Sapiri Zahayu Md Yusof ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-09-22 2020-09-22 9 1 24 10.37134/mrj.vol9.sp.1.2020
