The purpose of this study is to investigate the impacts of individual difference toward technology and situational influences on use intention of Self-Service Technology. While the previous research related to SSTs focuses on individual tendency toward technology, little research has been done on the impact of situational influences on usage intention of SSTs. This study proposed Technology Readiness Index for measuring individual tendency toward technology and categorized situational influences into two dimensions: location convenience, employee presence. The empirical testing of the research was conducted on 20` users who have prior experience in using SSTs except for ATMs in bank. This study demonstrated that the people who are favorable emotions positively affect SSTs. Also this study confirmed that it is effective to build strategies to form favorable attitude and usage intention of knowledge of SSTs rather than method through service employees. Finally, SSTs were distributed for customers.
