Literature revealed three key perceived benefits of online shopping, namely: perceived convenience, perceived price and perceived variety and product selection as influencing consumer attitude. The purposive sampling techniques and quantitative survey research method were used to select 100 women shoppers in Accra and collect the data for the study. Descriptive and hierarchical multiple regressions were used to analyze the data collected with questionnaires.
