 At the turn of the millennium, payment processing was almost entirely driven by banks and the small number of companies supporting them. But in the years since, the market has been transformed, allowing newer companies such as technology-driven group Net Element (NASDAQ: NETE) to make its presence felt.
  
 A number of factors have driven this change. One of the most obvious is the rise of the internet and online shopping. These online advances have created a need for online payment services, such as PayOnline, which allows retailers to quickly and easily get set up to take electronic payments. More recently, the options have extended to mobile payments, which have created a bridge between online and offline shopping, as consumers use internet-enabled phones to make payments on the high street.
