PayPal app adds more mobile wallet features

PayPal is updating its mobile app, adding features such as the ability to place an order ahead of time and pay with it while at the restaurant table.

The move comes as eBay Inc.'s subsidiary works to expand beyond processing payments for online purchases. It's been trying to service transactions at brick-and-mortar stores as the two worlds continue to meld.

The free app is available Thursday for iPhones and Android phones. It includes a feature called "Shop." With it, people can find nearby stores and restaurants that take PayPal payments. People could use their phones to pay for things.
