With the explosive growth of the Internet, mobile commerce (m-commerce) is an increasingly important segment of commercial activities on the Web. The secure agent fabrication, evolution and roaming (SAFER) architecture was proposed to further facilitate m-commerce using agent technology. In this paper, the electronic payment aspect of SAFER will be explored. The secure electronic transaction (SET) protocol was selected as the basis for the electronic payment system implementation due to its wide acceptance. The various modules of the payment system and how they interface with each other are shown. An implementation done using Java will also be elaborated. This application incorporates agent roaming functionality and the ability to conduct m-commerce transactions and carry out corresponding e-payment procedures.
