The validity of the final overall model was evaluated using the statistics and acceptable fit of the measurement model to the data has been demonstrated. Based on the outcomes, the factors with the highest direct effect on Intention to use M- marketing appeared to be Attitude toward using M -marketing, while the factor with the highest indirect effect on Intention to use M- marketing appeared to be Compatibility.
