This paper seeks to examine the cause decided by institutional differences and commercial value that are two of reasons of China society is more likely to accept than U.S. in perception of BDA in e-commerce. In brief, it better for U.S. e-commerce corporations that cooperate with big data companies closely is suggested in this paper.
