||Drawing on the concept of hedonism determination, this paper explores the hedonic functions of online shopping. Data from the 2013 Taiwan Communication Survey revealed three critical findings. First, people who use the Internet for entertainment are more likely to shop online. Second, among the four perspectives (i.e., economy, free-ofconstraints, risk aversion, and hedonism), hedonism was the most accurate predictor of online shopping. Third, when affective beliefs (hedonism related beliefs) conflicted with cognitive beliefs derived from the economic, free-of-constraints, and risk aversion perspectives, people were less likely to shop online.
