PayPal Mobile App Lets You Order Ahead at Restaurants
Other changes include a new tab called “Shop” that lets users find nearby stores or restaurants that accept PayPal. The tab also lets you check in a la Foursquare. Meanwhile, you can add new accounts to the payment system by snapping a picture of your credit card.
As with other mobile payment apps, like Google Wallet, utility depends on a great extent on the network of merchants that are offering support for the payment system. In PayPal’s case, thousands of stores including Abercrombie & Fitch, The Home Depot and Toys “R” Us let you make mobile payments using PayPal’s app.
