This volume presents a pragmatic approach to understanding and capitalizing on contemporary m-commerce trend.

This volume, M-Commerce: Experiencing the Phygital Retail, provides a comprehensive discussion of the contemporary m-commerce concepts along with the emerging paradigms in a pragmatic way. It presents empirical analyses and reviews on the myriad aspects of m-commerce, including both contemporary academic and business research.
