Research results show that the retail enterprises O2 O e-commerce adoption behavior is the rational choice to adapt to the internet economy and the new business model,the initial hypothesis is tested by theory and the latent variables have a significant impact on the adoption behavior, the questionnaire data is reliable and stable and the sample data and the measurement model fit well, the professional knowledge of enterprises is the most important factor affecting the adoption behavior, the three latent variables of the decision subject is the largest indirect influence on adoption behavior.The characteristics and innovative points of this paper are mainly embodied in the following four aspects: The first aspect,the study topic is close to the background of the retail enterprises transformation development in the internet economy era.The traditional retail enterprises under the impact of the internet economy have faced more difficults and problems that will increase the retail enterprises restructuring and development pressure.The information technology diffusion and application in the field of retail enterprise becomes an important development direction for traditional retail enterprise restructuring and development.So from the perspective of enterprise decision-making body, the research of retail enterprises O2 O e-commerce adoption behavior has a strong reality effect and at the same time it provides a new research perspective for other scholars to study this problem.
