McDonald's tests PayPal mobile payments

Fast food giant McDonald's is testing PayPal mobile payments technology at restaurants in France, according to Reuters.

The pilot, running at 30 sites, enables customers to order food on smartphones through a McDonald's app, or online, and then pay with PayPal before picking up their burgers at a separate line.

McDonald's, which has over 30,000 restaurants around the world, is also working on a more in-depth mobile service, says Reuters. At a recent franchisee conference in Orlando, Florida, the firm showed off technology - "coming within the next 24 months or so" - that lets users order and pay using PayPal's digital wallet and app.

PayPal has already signed up more than 15 major US retailers to its in-store payments tech but a deal with McDonald's would prove a major coup in a competitive market which recently saw rival Square bag coffee chain giant Starbucks.
