    Around the world many different micropayment systems are in use. Because of this variety, content providers and customers may rely on different systems. As a result, customers may be unable to buy content from providers using a different system. This paper proposes a novel approach that allows existing micropayment systems to collaborate. This collaboration is realized by introducing an intermediate system, called Payment Gateway, that interconnects different payment systems. This payment gateway enables content providers and customer to use their micropayment system of choice.
