Digital Financial Inclusion (DFI) which is a digital access to use of formal financial services by underserved populations to solve those problems. The success of the DFI services were not only determined by the service provider, but also by the acceptance of the users. The TAM (Technology Acceptance Model) model offers a powerful and simple explanation of the factors that affect user acceptance of a technology. The main purpose of this study was to understanding consumer acceptance of  using DFI which was investigated and measured by several factors through the TAM model ie; perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, perceived credibility, intention to use, and actual use. The population of this research was conducted in Bogor City because the level of financial inclusion in Bogor City was low but the digital development was quite good. And total sample was 134 respondent.

The PLS SEM analysis showed that perceived usefulness has no significant effect (p> 0.05) to intention to use DFI services but perceived ease of use and credibility has significant (p <0.05) and positive effect to consumer interest in using DFI services. Perceived credibility is the most influencing consumer interest in using DFI service because it has the highest coefficient value. The results of this study were expected to improve the development and acceptance of DFI services.
