Morpheus P2P Service Builds in Subscription Billing in New Version: StreamCast Networks has added a payment platform to the latest version of the Morpheus peer-to-peer network. The Morpheus Commerce Platform has been fitted with online payment technology from iBill that lets consumers bill monthly recurring charges directly. To get started, file-sharing fans must deposit $5.00 in a Morpheus Wallet to make micro-payment purchases.
Another ambitious addition to the P2P client is Morpheus Tix, a feature that hawks and delivers tickets to sporting events, music concerts and Broadway shows. While it seems a logical step to use the popular network to push tickets and e-commerce items, companies on the P2P bandwagon have found it near impossible to make money by targeting consumers.
