The introduction of new technologies, digitalisation and restrictions on physical activity during the COVID-19 pandemic have encouraged the development of e-commerce. Due to constantly changing consumer needs and growing competition, organisations working in the field of e-commerce face enormous challenges. The aim of the article, analysing factors that influence the users of e-commerce platforms, is to determine what factors influence the decisions made by the users of Lithuanian e-commerce platforms. The analysis of the scientific literature helped to identify the main factors influencing the decisions made by the users of e-commerce platforms, and the results of the quantitative survey allowed to determine that the decisions made by the users of Lithuanian e-commerce platforms depend on demographic factors, i.e. age, gender, place of residence, and monthly income.
