The e-commerce website features being investigated are website design, information quality, security and privacy which are gained from the literature review. The data is collected through an online survey which consists of 358 respondents who are familiar with purchasing on the e-commerce website.

The results performed in the MATLAB software shows that the most significant feature in the e-commerce website is the information quality. Findings from this study would assist the owner and the developer of an e-commerce website to improve its website quality in order to influence the customers’ purchase intention on the e-commerce website.
