No one should be fooled by the apparent simplicity of this monetary phenomenon. It involves complex concepts and the proliferation of electronic payment methods is bringing to light problems that we might have considered solved but which are now resurfacing. We should look first at some of these concepts and then at the various electronic payment methods to determine whether they can fill their roles properly, particularly in view of the regulations to which providers and users are subject. Based on comparative law and an analysis of the risks involved, we can then formulate recommendations with regard to government, providers, consumers and other players in this field.
