  • Company’s PayOnline provides flexible, integrated payment solutions for e-commerce sector
  • Platform matches almost all native systems, offline and online, including on mobile
  • Online sales reached $395 billion in 2016, remaining a primary growth driver in the overall retail industry


The U.S. e-commerce market is rapidly expanding, as consumers benefit from a growing number of channels for online ordering, driven by a strong preference of younger generations to make their purchases online. Internet sales reached roughly $395 billion in 2016, accounting for 11.7 percent of total retail sales reported nationwide last year, according to Department of Commerce data ( The trend continued into 2017, with online retail sales reaching $105.7 billion in the first quarter. This fast-growing market offers ample investment opportunities to online payment solution providers such as Net Element, Inc. (NASDAQ:NETE) and its subsidiary PayOnline, an innovative and flexible payment processing platform.

Online retail sales in the United States grew at an accelerated rate in 2016 compared to previous years. With a 15.6 percent increase reported, e-commerce accounted for nearly 42 percent of all U.S. retail market growth last year. For comparison, total retail sales in 2016 were $3.375 trillion, factoring out sales in restaurants and bars, as well as items that are not usually purchased online, such as automobiles, fuel, etc. Most of the e-commerce market share is still held by, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), which remains leader when it comes to online sales and a favorite brand among U.S. consumers. The internet giant reported transactions of $147 billion in 2016, which is more than 31 percent higher than the previous year.

Mobile purchases are leading the way when it comes to the growth of the e-commerce sector, with almost half of the digital retail traffic happening on mobile, according to Business Insider data ( But the traffic increase does not translate into actual purchases, with consumers preferring to use desktop computers rather than their smartphones for online orders. The volume of mobile traffic, however, presents a major opportunity for retailers, as mobile allows consumers and vendors to communicate more effectively and more frequently. With the right tools and software, mobile payments could grow exponentially, helping expand the digital sales market further.

This is where global financial technology group Net Element’s PayOnline platform comes in. Having just entered the U.S. e-commerce market, the PayOnline subsidiary is one of the most versatile global online payment solutions in the industry, leveraging its parent company’s experience with omni-channel electronic payments acceptance solutions that include e-commerce, point-of-sale and mobile devices.

Providing flexible high-tech payment solutions to more than 3,000 companies in markets such as Eastern and Western Europe, Central Asia and the Commonwealth of Independent States, PayOnline is designed to allow retailers to expand their business by offering customers as many payment options as possible. In addition, the platform is developer-friendly, with its API and SDK allowing merchants to easily integrate it with their native systems, both offline and online, including via mobile apps.

With industry-leading security features making the system a safe and viable option for all retailers, PayOnline also offers easy e-commerce and CMS integration, already being available on the most popular platforms.

Net Element expects the fully integrated payment solution to be as successful in the U.S. as it has been abroad, allowing it to generate significant revenue for the company.
