This stems from the fact that Saudi Arabia has fully embrace the massive use of the Internet by all and sundry, coupled with the willingness of the Government in supporting electronic processing. However, it was discovered that the more the Government strive to ensure that electronic processes including payment grows, the less impact that was seen. This underlines the necessity of research that will highlight the acceptability status of electronic commerce in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in comparison with economies which have successfully liberalised their economy by the effective use of the Web for financial transactions. Also, the research performs detail analytical illustration of facts concerning the challenges in the Saudi Arabian Web payment implementation and the corrective measures for policy makers and other stakeholders.
