Abstract

Mobile payment (M-Payment) is a payment method that is carried out via mobile devices such as PDA, tablet PC or mobile phone. The M-Payment method is widely employed for buying ring tones, games and stock alerts or news, however the use of M-Payment method for buying electronic books (e-Books) is not yet available. This project aims to study the suitability of adopting M-Payment method for buying e-Books, with emphasis on the mobile phone as the wireless device, due to the popularity of mobile phone usage among students and the affordable price of owning a mobile phone compared to PDA or tablet PC. A diagrammatic process flow model that includes all the major entities which are Buyers, Telco and Merchant was developed. The process flow model will served as a pictorial representation of the processes involved and also as a guidance in implementing the M-Payment system in buying e-Books. The capabilities of mobile phone to browse internet through WAP site has open up a new marketing channel where e-Books providers can now market their products via WAP site. Therefore the project has identified the features of e-Books WAP site based on the proposed process flow and the eInfoC web site as case study. Finally two prototypes which are WAP prototype and web prototype were developed to demonstrate the proposed process flow.
