ABSTRACT
This article explains the reason why mobile payments system Payforit is not widely known to consumers despite its being endorsed by mobile operators in Great Britain and liked by Internet content owners. The reason for the limited knowledge of consumers about Payforit is the hedging by mobile networks who are worried about the future of mobile payment systems. Payforit is facing competition from PayPal Mobile and at the same time content owners are allowed by mobile operators to choose their own billing methods.
