Therefore, this study was made with the aim of examining the relationship between flash sale countdown timer, live streaming e-commerce on the formation of impulsive buying which is strengthened or weakened by the presence of in-home shopping tendency. Hypothesis testing is done by analyzing Partial Least Square – Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) with SmartPLS software. The results showed that flash sale countdown timer and live streaming e-commerce had a positive effect on impulsive buying, also in home shopping tendency as a moderating variable has a positive effect.
