  • Location-based services of M-commerce uses the information about the location of the mobile phone user or of any m-commerce transaction. This knowledge about the location of the user allows for location-based services like,

    • Local weather
    • Tracking and monitoring of people

  • And of course, about 64% of Mobile Shoppers Expect Live Support Chat, which is a wide spread feature presently.


  • The difference between E-commerce & M-commerce,



  • Micropayment is an e-commerce transaction which involves a very small sum of money in exchange for a good or a service. Usually, this "very small sum" ranges less than 75 cents and even can be a fraction of a cent. But this requires a special type of system since the transactions are too small to be feasible in credit card usage.
  • Recent micropayment systems include,

    • Flattr
    • M-Coin
    • Zong
    • PayPal
