Internet Shopping Motivation (Early Adoption)

Using four, seven-point items, this scale measures the extent to which a consumer finds gratification in shopping online because it facilitates learning about and adopting new products, particularly those that are fashion-related.  The scale was referred to as the avant-gardism motivation by Ganesh et al. (2010).
