This study aims to see whether the presence of P2P Lending provides business convenience for lenders with reference to user satisfaction. The approach taken by using the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) with Structural Equation Modeling (SEM). The results show that all variables consisting of User Perception directly influence Ease and Attitude Perception, Ease Perception directly influences Attitude and Satisfaction; and Perception of Use has an indirect effect on satisfaction with quasy mediation. Therefore, 55% of respondents stated that P2P Lending provides convenience in doing business.
