||Shopping walls is an e-commerce model that puts product information on the shopping wall so that consumers can purchase by scanning associated QR-codes. So customers can save their time to shopping. Some success cases have been reported but there are also failed cases. For example, the S.F. Express in China set up many shopping-wall based stores but was not successful. HomePlus supermarkets in Korea, on the other hand, set up shopping walls in subway stations to successfully increase revenues. In Taiwan, many corporations invest resources to try the shopping wall model, but most of them failed. For instance, 7-11 had tried the shopping wall but were not successful. Recent years, PCHome also set up shopping walls and used their digital wallet to make the shopping process more convenient. |

Findings from these experiments include: public place, transportation station, and working place are more suitable for shopping walls. We also found that instant noodles, milk tea retort pouch , cola canned drinks , potato chips are more suitable for these environments.
