  • Reuters is saying that 30 McDonald’s restaurants in France are performing a trial run of PayPal payments via mobile applications right now. The chain of restaurants is testing a new payment system that would allow customers to purchase meals using mobile devices.

    The concept was demoed during McDonald’s conference in Orlando, Florida at a booth featuring technology that will debut in the following years. The restaurants in France offer customers the option to order food via tablet or smartphone, using a special McDo mobile app and then pay for the goods via PayPal. They also get a special separate line to pick up their orders created via apps. With McDonald’s owning over 30k restaurants all over the world, this could be the beginning of something interesting.

    Home Depot and many other big franchises have signed to use PayPal for mobile payments lately. However, PayPal has some competition here, since Square recently signed a landmark deal with Starbucks to handle the processing of debit and credit card transactions for payments at coffee shops.
