My new book on “Trusting Mobile Payment Services” has just been published in German. In the book I analyze the role of trust within the development and establishment phase of mobile payment services. Even if the form of payment instruments has constantly changed in the past, the demand on its trustability has never changed. Based on complex value chains and sophisticated technical solutions, Mobile Payment services in particular demand a special trust-factor before they got accepted in the market.
What trust exactly is, which functions trust has in relation to the usage of technical systems and which certain aspects of trust in particular are interesting for Mobile Payment solutions, will be analyzed in the book.
Currently the book is only available in German, but the English-Version will follow soon.
