What is mCommerce? as it appeared in International Journal of Mobile Communications on June 18, 2013
Mobile Commerce, also known as M-Commerce or mCommerce, is the ability to conduct commerce using a mobile device, such as a mobile phone, a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), a smartphone, or other emerging mobile equipment such as dashtop mobile devices.
“Although the rapid growth of the mobile phone market makes companies very excited about the great potential of m-commerce, after the crisis people are more sceptical and think it might just be more hype. There is still no single answer to justify either of these two opposite opinions. To achieve m-commerce success, people are looking for innovative killer applications or extensions of existing e-commerce applications in a mobile environment. “
