AbstractThe buying and selling of products or services over electronic systems such as the Internet and other computer networks is known as electronic commerce.

These protocols are actually the foundation for electronic micropayments, which implement simplified and cheaper schemes intended for small value transactions. In this paper we shall present and compare the main characteristics of the most popular micropayment systems used in both face-to-face and remote commerce.
