Abstract

Purpose: This study aims to show the factors that influence the intention of Generation Z Muslims to buy halal food products through ShopeeFood. Design/methodology/approach: This study used quantitative methods. The analytical technique used is partial least square-structural equation modeling with 230 respondents as a sample of Generation Z Muslims in West Java, Indonesia. This research was conducted in June 2022 by distributing questionnaires via Google Forms and social media. Findings: The results showed that perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, attitudes, subjective norms, perceived behavioral control, religiosity and intention to buy halal food through ShopeeFood in Generation Z Muslims in West Java were in the high category. However, subjective norms and perceived behavioral control are the only ones that positively and significantly affect purchase intention. Practical implications: ShopeeFood is expected to be able to identify and take advantage of the high level of intention of Generation Z Muslims to buy halal food through ShopeeFood. ShopeeFood can socialize and increase consumer attention that ShopeeFood is different from other online food delivery services. ShopeeFood can require merchants to display transparency in the composition of food products. Originality/value: To the best of the authors’ knowledge, this study is perhaps the first study in the context of Generation Z Muslims in West Java, Indonesia, that deals with the perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, attitudes, subjective norms, perceived behavioral control and religiosity on the intention to buy halal food through ShopeeFood. The study’s findings are essential in Islamic marketing and technological acceptance (ShopeeFood Apps).
