Why I Hate Micropayments - Rita McGrath - Harvard Business Review
It all comes down to how the payment link of customers' consumption chains fits into their total experience. iTunes, Amazon, and the cable companies have figured out how to make the payment experience either seamless (Amazon and its one-click process), transparent (Apple's iTunes — you know exactly what you're getting for your 99 cents) or inescapable if you want to get other things done (cue the phone and cable companies). No micro-payment system I've investigated has achieved either seamlessness, transparency, or inevitability. No standard perceived value has emerged for a piece of web content. And don't even get me started on the need to enter credit card info, passwords, secret codes, and captcha entries before you get anywhere. Micropayments in their current form are an irritating interruption, not something a consumer participates in either gladly or grudgingly.
