PayPal (EBAY) and point-of-sale hardware king NCR are joining forces in an attempt to challenge Square and its meteoric rise. PayPal will be offered as a payment option at restaurants supporting NCR's Mobile Pay app (works with NCR's Aloha systems), and PayPal's own apps will handle payments at NCR-supporting restaurants. Given NCR's systems are used by half of all major U.S. retail chains, the tie-up could easily be expanded. Square, for its part, is seeing good uptake for its Wallet solution, which supports Pay With Square. (yesterday's deals)
