Abstract: The goal of this study is to develop and enhance an understanding of Iranian customers' adoption of Internet banking services. Enhancement of Internet banking service adoption is an important strategy in today’s increasingly competitive banking industry. Bank management must identify and improve upon factors that can limit customer adoption. Through a questionnaire, demographic, attitudinal and behavioral characteristics of Internet banking service customers of Saman and Mellat banks from private and governmental sectors are captured. The results illustrate that expectations about service quality are high. The majority of the customers are very willing to use Internet banking services. The security concerns and lack of adequate technological knowledge stand out as being two main obstacles to the adoption of Internet banking. There was also evidence that customers’ age groups and level of education more contributed to explain the respondent's propensity to use Internet banking services. Saman bank was perceived as having a significantly better service portfolio, specifically in regard to making customers aware of its services and offering its attractive incentives in comparison to Mellat bank. The service quality dimensions were found to better meet the overall expectation of customers who patronized Saman bank. Since the majority of the Iranian banks are under the governmental authority; thus, privatization could be useful in enrichment of the Iranian banks' performance.

Abstract: Competition and reforms in Ghana’s financial sector have brought about a lot of innovation into the Ghanaian banking industry. This study explores how innovative banking products are perceived by consumers. The study used purposive sampling technique to gather data from 288 students from a public university in Ghana. The study revealed that the critical features that influenced customers’ choice of banking products and their adoption were convenience, reliability, security, flexibility, time saving and ease of use. The most popular innovative products were Automated Teller Machines and E-zwich. Telephone banking and credit cards were not very popular. The mean preference for innovative banking products for female (15.0568) was slightly higher than that of male (14.7100). The mean usage of female (8.7955) was slightly higher than that of male (8.350). Due to the low usage of products such as the telephone and internet banking, it is recommended that banks in Ghana should embark on an educational campaign to highlight the benefits of these products to the populace.

Abstract: This paper contributes to the electronic banking (e-banking) literature by applying the modified Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) in an under-researched Zambian context. Specifically, it examines the influence of e-banking technology’s perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use and trust (safety and credibility) on e-banking adoption. Based on a quantitative correlational design, primary sample data were collected from 222 bank customers from two of Zambia’s largest cities. The findings indicate that the modified TAM model is applicable in the Zambian context and that perceived usefulness, ease of use and trust each significantly positively influences attitude to e-banking. In turn attitudes to e-banking influence intention and actual adoption of e-banking services. For scholars, practitioners and policy makers, the study shows that improving perceptions of trust (safety, security and credibility), usefulness and ease of use of e-banking systems would result in increased adoption. This paper is the first to extend the modified TAM model into the under-researched developing country context of e-banking in Zambia.

The study involved 137 respondents from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda. Due to the quantitative nature of the study, the results are analysed with statistical measures. This included the use of SPSS to carry out regression analysis. The analysis reveals that corporate users are not motivated by the same factors as private users. In order to become Internet banking customers, it is extremely important for corporate users to have a system that is easy to use and operate with full support from the bank.

Abstract: Customer service has become so vital and significant to consider especially in the financial business sector whether locally or globally. As banks continue to provide an increasing number of financial services and products, they face the challenge of integrating these disparate systems into a coherent, efficient infrastructure, while delivering the highest level of customer service and convenience without exposing their customers to the bank’s internal system integration problems. However, banks in Ghana especially Ghana Commercial Bank (GCB) needed to improve and formalize its customer service and public relations programs. A descriptive research method was used to gather data from the respective target population. Customer service at GCB from the customers’ perspective is not satisfactory but has led to the increase in number of new customers, maintenance of existing customer and increase in profitability among others.

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to determine those factors that influence the adoption of internet banking services in Tunisia. A theoretical model is provided that conceptualizes and links different factors influencing the adoption of internet banking. A total of 253 respondents in Tunisia were sampled for responding: 95 were internet bank users, 158 were internet bank non users. Factor analyses and regression technique are employed to study the relationship. The results of the model tested clearly that use of internet banking in Tunisia is influenced most strongly by convenience, risk, security and prior internet knowledge. Only information on online banking did not affect intention to use internet banking service in Tunisia. The results also propose that demographic factors impact significantly internet banking behaviour, specifically, occupation and instruction. Finally, this paper suggests that an understanding the factors affecting intention to use internet banking is very important to the practitioners who plan and promote new forms of banking in the current competitive market.

Abstract: The main thrust of this study is to find out the relationship between dividend policy and performance of banks in Ghana. The study used panel data constructed from the financial statements of 16 commercial banks in Ghana for a period of 5 years, from 1999-2003. These financial statements were obtained from the Banking Supervision department of Bank of Ghana. STATA was used for the data analysis. From the results of the study, the average dividend paid by banks over the study period was 24.65%. Also, it is apparent that banks that pay dividend increase their performance. The results also reinforce earlier findings that leverage, size of a bank and bank growth enhance the performance of banks. The age factor presents mixed results. Generally, the result is in tandem with earlier studies that dividend policy has an effect on firm value.
