More than half of internet users said they would pay for internet
searches, archived news material, music downloads, weather reports,
railway timetables, online directory assistance, horoscopes and
financial advice. According to the latest research from the online
smartcard company, Mondex, the problem isn't encouraging people to pay
but actually facilitating the process of payments for very small amounts
of money online. The research found that web users were prepared to pay
as much as 60p per search.
