Abstract This study attempts to identify the catalytic role of smartphone addiction in driving mobile wallet payment adoption behavior in emerging economies such as India. The research model was tested using a questionnaire-based response collected from 512 young consumers. The findings of structural equation modeling and multi-group analysis helped in understanding the influence and importance of the research constructs of perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, and subjective norms in the adoption of mobile wallet payments by young people. The results indicated that the moderating effect of smartphone addiction played a substantial role in the adoption of mobile wallet payments. It has also revealed the importance of communication to the right consumer through proper channels and the appropriate age group. The outcome of the study can be utilized by marketers to frame strategies for positioning their services among an appropriate consumer base, thereby enhancing Internet business opportunities.
