  Millicent Microcommerce System

Welcome to the Millicent Web Site!

The MillicentTM system is the basis for a new way to buy and sell content in very small amounts over the Internet. The system supports transactions as small as 1/10th of a cent up to $5.00 in size. Microcommerce transactions in this range are important to online publishers that want to sell newspapers by the article, cartoons by the strip, or music by the song. Software providers targeting the Network Computer (NC) market can use the Millicent system to sell Java applets and host-based applications on a per-use basis. In an Intranet setting, Millicent software acts as an Web-aware accountant that meters access to information systems and to services inside the enterprise.

We invite you to explore this Web server to learn more about the Millicent system, how it will be deployed and how you can get involved. If you would like to be kept abreast of Millicent developments, please send email to We'll be happy to add you to the Millicent interest list.
