Communications of the ACM
Some of the significant features associated with commerce, e-commerce, and m-commerce are discussed. Commerce is associated with four types of exchange, such as bargaining, bidding, auctioning, and clearing. The first two types of exchange are bilateral, while the the other two types involve trilateral transactions. Significant developments in the Internet and Web technologies have led to the introduction of e-commerce. E-commerce is defined as a general type of business of commercial transaction that involves the transfer of information across the Internet. It allows multiple users from different locations to engage in significant commercial transactions and activities over the Internet. The growth and development of Internet-based technologies has allowed telecom companies to offer new commercial opportunities to users over mobile devices, such as cellular phones and personal digital assistants.
