This paper makes comments and suggestions: Improve perceived ease of use, convenient for consumers; enhance perceived usefulness, more informative and accurate data; reduce perceived risk, increase consumer trust; combine local culture, provide personalized services; timely adjust strategy and macro layout. Promote the interests of both the supply and demand sides, and provide decision-making reference for relevant departments.
