Basic knowledge and introduction on mobile money and its critical success factors, attributes, key stake holders along with meaning were discussed in Mobile Money Basics (updated on 21-Dec-2014). People interested in the use of mobile phones for their payments, sending money to each other (P2P) or checking balance, often ask what is the difference between e-money, mobile money, mobile banking, mobile payments, mobile commerce etc. Most of the consumers who wants to use and even some who are already using these services are confused. As there are no universally accepted/defined definitions. This lack of uniformity does become critical at the regulatory level as well as when potential players are trying to have a meaningful conversation with each other.
