    Dada la importancia que está adquiriendo Internet como método complementario a la venta en los establecimientos comerciales tradicionales, se hace necesario conocer qué motivos llevan a su aceptación y uso como canal de compra por parte de los consumidores. Por este motivo, el presente trabajo tiene como objetivo analizar las principales motivaciones hacia la compra en Internet y su incidencia en la decisión de compra y en las intenciones futuras de comportamiento hacia el sistema. Los resultados obtenidos permiten concluir que la comodidad es el principal motivo de uso del medio Internet como canal de compra y que las distintas motivaciones utilitaristas analizadas influyen tanto en el volumen de gasto realizado en Internet como en la lealtad hacia el sistema y en la predisposición a pagar un precio superior al de los canales tradicionales a cambio de los beneficios que proporciona este medio como canal de compra. / The growing importance of Internet as a complementary alternative to traditional retail outlets make it necessary to find out what motivates consumers to accept and use it as a purchase channel. This work therefore aims to analyse the main motivations for e-shopping and their influence on the purchase decision and future behaviour intentions. The results obtained suggest that convenience is the main reason for using Internet as a shopping channel and that the different utilitarian motivations analysed influence the volume of on-line expenditure, e-loyalty and willingness to pay a higher price than in traditional channels in exchange for the benefits of Internet shopping.
