Due to its dynamic nature, the emergence of evolutionary technologies, and the constant changing of the bank-related businesses, policy making in electronic banking has faced numerous challenges and has made it difficult to apply the common policymaking models to this arena. Since the policymaking process highly depends on the public culture, the administrative structure of the country, and the stakeholders’ needs, the purpose of this paper is to present a meta-model for electronic banking with regard to these considerations. The research method is qualitative in general and a meta-synthesis in particular. To this end, at first, all common policymaking models in the relevant texts and literature were identified so that, by decomposing the past models into their components and then recombining them, a new meta-model could be developed. After Analyzing 26 policy making models, the five models of “Garbage Can”, “Systematic Model”, “Process Model”, “Weak Signals” and “Game Theory” were selected according to the criteria of uncertainty, non-comprehensiveness of the topic, the lack of integrity among actors, and outside-in approach. At the end, by decomposing the components of these models and recombining them through open coding method, the developed policymaking meta-model for banking was achieved.
