Few studies have examined customers’ beliefs and intentions across different self- service technology channels and different intended uses of these channels. The present work integrates (a) technology acceptance variables (b) trusting beliefs and trusting intention as two distinct constructs, (c) level of customers’ information about the channel, in order to test their effect on use intention for two channels, Internet and phone banking, and three banking transactions. Findings from a sample of 762 bank customers reveal that patterns of adoption are quite similar for the two channels but differ across transactions. Furthermore, the trusting intention has a strong mediating role between trusting beliefs and technology-acceptance variables on one hand, and intention to use these channels on the other hand. Several implications for developing intention to use technology-based channels are discussed.
