Data were collected from 240 users of mobile payment services through field survey during March to April in 2020 by purposive sampling method from Mymensingh and Sylhet Districts. The main satisfaction sources those emerged from the content analysis were, in descending order of incidents: convenience, problem solving, offer and discount, security and trust, and efficacy. On the other hand, complexity and network failure were the main reasons of customer dissatisfaction with mobile payment services. The findings of the multiple linear regression models revealed that age, education, monthly income and residential area had statistically significant effect on monthly e-commerce transaction over mobile payment services. Young people were more prone to use mobile payment services than older. People with higher education transacted less money over mobile payment services. Higher income earner transacted more money over mobile payment services. People live in urban area used the services frequently and transacted more money.
