PayPal (EBAY) is pulling out all the stops to challenge Square in the iPad cash register space: it's now offering free payment processing for 2013 to any U.S. business that exchanges a register for a PayPal Here solution, which includes a stand, cash drawer, and printer. Meanwhile, Square is rolling out a $299 stand/card swiper for its iPad solution, and Groupon (GRPN) is launching a register app, rebranding its mobile payments unit (includes a restaurant app) as Breadcrumb, and offering $5K in free payment processing to new clients. VeriFone (PAY) and NCR, whose traditional offerings are threatened by the likes of Square, also offer iPad point-of-sale solutions, as does NetSuite's (N) Retail Anywhere unit.
