Foreign mobile payment has initially formed a relatively mature industry chain and has a good momentum of development, especially in Europe, Japan and Korea. Compared to foreign, China’s mobile payment has not initially formed a relatively mature industry chain. Thus it has resulted in that China’s mobile payment is developing slowly.

Because the mobile payment is restricted by payment habits, payment security, the credit system, the business model and the supporting regulations, China’s parties of mobile payment industrial chain can not find an effective solution to the problem of the distribution of benefits. Therefore, how to solve the problems is the most important issue in the field of mobile payments.This paper analyses mobile payment using related theory of business ecosystem.
