China's mobile e-commerce has developed rapidly in the Internet age and is doing business via mobile phones and influencing people's consumer patterns and payment methods. And it is helping to increase demand and nurture new industries. However, in spite of the benefits it has no doubt brought, e-commerce has its problems, mainly in three areas: one, slow network speeds with high costs; two, the need for greater supervision; and three, the concern for safety.

Because of these issues, we propose the following industrial developments: first, improve the Internet infrastructure; second, improve the e-commerce monitoring system; and third, push e-commerce innovations and trial applications.
