The purpose of this paper was to investigate influence of perceived risk (financial risk, product risk, convenience risk and non-delivery risk) on online impulse buying tendency. Web-based survey was conducted for data collection using online questionnaire distributed through stratified random sampling technique from online consumers of Pakistan. A total of 200 valid responses were gathered and the data was analyzed by using SPSS software and demographic statistics, correlation and regression tests.
