Smart service delivery typically requires customer or employee interaction in addition to the service provided by the service technology itself. Driven by the advancements in information technologies, technology autonomy in smart service delivery gains in relevance. Independent of the users’ intervention, the service technology carries out actions like scanning or payment. Despite first implementations in physical retail, knowledge is sparse on consumers’ adoption of these smart services, especially in comparison with other smart services. Hence, this study develops and empirically tests a value-based adoption model. The results of a scenario-based survey reveal that consumers form their adoption intentions of smart services through value perceptions. Consumers balance costs (i.e., cognitive effort and privacy risk) against benefits (i.e., time savings and control) in the process of creating value of smart services while an increasing service autonomy strengthens the effects of control perceptions on value.
