m-commerce 's problem

Whatever happened to m-commerce reminds me of what happened to e-commerce. When e-commerce tries to enter mainstream commerce, it competes with offline stores. In an environment where offline stores are abundant and convenient, e-commerce will have hard time.

Our company, www.eguo.com, did a study in an affluent community in Beijing with 10,000 families. We opened a 24-hour store, offer catalogs, and web site to complement that store. If people order online or through phone, they get their orders delivered within 20 minutes. We basically provide three channels for consumers to choose: offline, phone, and web. Guess what is the result? I am sure you know.

m-commerce faces competition from e-commerce. When computers are everywhere, from work to home, why people bother to buy through M? It is not going to be a mainstream channel.

When considering an online-only dealer to purchase an automobile, which is most important to you?
30-day low price guarantee
Comprehensive and verifiable vehicle inspection policy
Extended warranty protection plan provided by the dealer
Full money back return policy with no questions asked for at least a week after delivery
The dealer has many outstanding reviews, and few or no complaints.
I would not consider buying a vehicle from an online-only dealer.
