This paper has explored a pioneer model for online shopping behavior for natural flowers in Mauritius. Further to the extensive literature review, a survey method was adopted whereby 200 questionnaires were distributed to respondents using a non-probability convenience sampling method. The empirical estimates of the study have depicted that price, trust, reputation of retailers; education and age have an impact towards online shopping behavior for natural flowers, whilst gender and income do not influence customers. Correlation analysis also revealed that perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, subjective norms, behavioral intention and attitudes impacted on the online shopping behavior for natural flowers. A pioneer conceptual model was also proposed in this paper, whereby, policy makers and practitioners of online business can use the model as a reference to pave the way to encourage online purchases. This research represents a different way of understanding online shopping behavior for natural flowers.
