This study extracted and analyzed the factor that considered the several positions for Mobile Commerce so that it can reflect diverse the demands from those related to Mobile Commerce. It sought the new characteristic which is different from the Electronic Commerce, and took account of the successful factor for Mobile Commerce which includes the position in a user, a developer and an operator. In addition AHP (Analytics Hierarchy Process) was used in order to evaluate the subject characteristic applied to each related to through more objective methods. The analysis results identified in this study such as the quality trust and understandability for an information duality might be the one of the chief elements of success in Mobile Commerce which applies at the present.
