Abstract: This study investigates the current B2B-EC adoption decisions of Chinese enterprises operating in mainland China. Based on previous IS adoption and institutional theory, this study empirically tests a research model which incorporates four factors: perceived benefits, internal support, institutional pressures, and cognitive constraints as main predictors of B2B-EC adoption intention. Data were collected from 102 firms by a mail questionnaire. The results, obtained from PLS analysis, show that perceived benefits, internal support, and institutional pressures are positively related to the adoption intention while cognitive constraints, has a negative effect on adoption intention of B2B-EC. We conclude that the cognitive constraints should be removed first to expedite adoption of B2B-EC in China.
