  1. Hi, it’s a very informative website and I found it very useful. I am a bit confused while reading this topic of M-Commerce and E-Commerce regarding the use of internet, earlier you explained

    “In conclusion, M-commerce means doing business transactions on the Internet through the use of mobile devices, while E-commerce means doing business transactions on the Internet using computers or laptops.”

    Then later you said,

    “M-commerce is available anyplace you go, even if there is no Internet”

    Please explain. Thank you.
