A micropayment is a term typically used to describe low-value payments. These are usually payments made on a purchase-by-purchase basis, for digital goods such as access to news content, online music, TV shows and smartphone ‘apps’. Micropayment services are also increasingly used to purchase physical goods, such as school meals, although these services tend to operate within relatively small user groups.
