Technical Summary Electronic commerce frequently requires a substantial exchange of information in order to complete a purchase or other transaction, especially the first time the parties communicate. A standard set of hierarchically organized payment related information fields in an XML syntax are defined as the second version of an Electronic Commerce Modeling Language (ECML) so that this task can be more easily automated, for example by wallet software. Working Group Summary This specification is a product of the TRADE working group. Protocol Quality Ned Freed and Scott Hollenbeck reviewed the specification for the IESG.
