- Trust and distrust can coexist and are equally vital in trustor-trustee’s relationships by simplifying complexity. In this study, the definitions, roles and relationships of trust and distrust are put forward in the context of mobile commerce. The inherent features of mobile commerce determine that only two psychological states of trust and distrust are not enough to describe the various states of consumers. This paper integrates trust and distrust, and illustrates a framework of four rather than two states of existing and potential m-commerce consumers, which includes high trust & high distrust, high trust & low distrust, low trust & low distrust and low trust & high distrust. Further, recommendations for m-vendors aimed at consumers of each situation are proposed.
