In recent years, there has been a growing demand for new and innovative web-based payment platforms. As a result, companies have come up with many new online tools for helping consumers do everything from shop to pay their bills.

One of the primary reasons for the growth of web-based payment platforms is the rise of online banking. As a result, a number of companies have developed online tools that replace many of the services offered by physical banks. One example is Zelny's e-signature software, which helps consumers sign for documents over the web. Another example is Bluebird by American Express, which allows consumers to manage their finances entirely online.

Beyond banking, other tools have also been developed to help companies upgrade their website's online payment portals. For instance, cVita's LiveSite Online Payment System helps small business implement user-friendly e-commerce solutions. A more innovative example is Sharewall social currency platform 'PayOrShare,' which lets consumers choose their own price for content online.

These tools ultimately helps to improve the speed, security and convenience of online payments in order to make web-based transactions a more pleasant experience for consumers.
