Mobile banking is a new strategy for the bank to enhance their latest technology in a new dynamic marketing environment.The low penetration of mobile banking in Malaysia, especially in terms of adoption patterns is becoming the research interest, especially when compared to the total number of cellular telephone subscriptions, which recorded the highest number of penetration rates in quarter three of 146.2% in 2013. Although the number of cellular telephone users is huge, yet the mobile banking penetration rate was just 12.7% last year against the total population.This implies that those who employ the mobile banking market is still the minority.Thus, more effort needs to be practiced to amend the number of users and penetration rate of mobile banking. Even if mobile banking is relatively new in Malaysia, it is very important for the banks to mitigate this issue and thus can draw more users.It is a fact that mobile banking is yet in its infancy and quite foreign to the people of Malaysia.
