Md Shamimul Islam, Noorliza Karia, Mohamed Soliman Mohamed Soliman, Mahmudul Hasan Fouji, Jamshed Khalid, Muhammad Khaleel

It is therefore necessary to understand what factors influence the intentions of customers to adopt mobile banking in Bangladesh. However, there is a lack of scientific frameworks available to adopt for this study purpose.
