Purpose-The purpose of this paper is to extend the theory of consumption values by investigating the influence of aesthetic, conditional, convenience, monetary, epistemic, self-gratification, and social value on customer pre-adoption choice behavior to use mobile financial services. Design/methodology/approach-Data were collected using an online survey questionnaire resulting in 524 total responses from registered users of M-PESA mobile financial services in Kenya, ultimately resulting in a usable sample of 384 responses. Partial least squares was used to evaluate the research model and associated hypotheses. Findings-Aesthetic, conditional, convenience, monetary, epistemic, and self-gratification value are positive determinants of customer pre-adoption choice behavior to use M-PESA mobile financial services, but not social value. Research limitations/implications-Survey participants were limited to customers of M-PESA mobile financial services in Kenya. The study findings present important implications for managers and academic researchers in the mobile financial services market. Originality/value-This is one of the first empirical studies to investigate customer pre-adoption choice behavior to use M-PESA mobile financial services from the perspective of customer perceived value.
