m-Commerce need not be hi-tech
Grabbed a Car Finder magazine during a late lunch this afternoon.
While skimming through the pages, the magazine was advertising that people wanting to advertise their cars may be able to send in their photos using MMS and remitting payments thru G-Cash or Smart Money. There, I realized that is already m-commerce — no bells and whistles but the whole transaction was done using the mobile phone.
That person may not have as much access to the internet nor have a typical digital camera or maybe a scanner but with the mobile phone, business was done quickly and even more efficiently. It basically shortens the process if you compare it the conventional way and on top of that, no credit card was used.
We should have more of that.
