What Are the Main Differences Between E-Commerce and M-Commerce?

In today’s fast-paced technological world, business is usually carried out over the Internet. These online transactions are called mobile commerce and e-commerce. E-commerce is a term that has been around for a long time. This term refers to doing business online, and everyone knows about it. However, with the rise of mobile commerce, some misconceptions have also risen. Both are about doing business online, but there is still a significant difference between the two. It is best to define and differentiate these misconceptions to clear these misconceptions.

So what’s the difference between them?

M-commerce is a type of business transaction that takes place on your mobile phone, as long as your mobile phone has Internet access. Recently, phones have access to the Internet, such as 4G, making these transactions more accessible. With the advent of phones with Internet access, this business operation has become very popular. Recently, mobile commerce has become a booming business.

With mobile commerce, many products and promotional items can be sold. Not only that, you can also take advantage of coupons, loyalty cards, and discount cards through your mobile phone with the help of mobile commerce. In addition, mobile commerce also allows you to do mobile banking and use your money across companies.

E-commerce, on the other hand, is also a way to carry out business transactions over the Internet. If you have a laptop or desktop, you can easily shop online.

1. Mobile commerce means using a mobile phone with Internet access, while e-commerce requires a laptop or desktop computer, both of which are done online.

2. You can pay for an e-commerce transaction through machines where you swipe your credit cards; mobile commerce does not have this yet.

3. Mobile commerce is more portable than e-commerce because mobile phones are available 24/7 anywhere.
