In today`s mobile world there is a high potential for m(obile)-payment services, but the mere existence of such services does not mean that the market is ready for them. M-payment services must add value to attract new users. After years of research regarding technology acceptance (TA) of m-payment, the aim of this paper is to examine how technology readiness (TR) influences customers’ perception and acceptance of m-payment. TA of consumers in combination with TR is investigated for m-payment in Finland, Germany, the USA and Japan. We conduct an online survey to collect data in those four countries. We use that data to carry out a TA analysis using a structural equation model (SEM). The research model arises from the findings of a priori explorative study and a comprehensive literature review. Evaluation results based on an extended TA model (TAM) show that user acceptance of m-payment differs influenced by constructs.
