    MasterCard (MA -1.1%) unveils a payment solution called PayPass Wallet Services that allows users to make purchases by touch, click, or tap depending upon the device in hand. On a special CC covering the product launch, execs make it abundantly clear that the new payments system will compete directly with eBay's (EBAY -0.1%) PayPal in an attempt to make it the one-click checkout standard.

    Hoping to stem Amazon's (AMZN) share gains, eBay (EBAY) and Wal-Mart (WMT) are investing heavily in improving their search technology; eBay has tripled its search engineer headcount to over 150. The engineers are tasked with revamping eBay's Voyager engine, which is over a decade old. If the efforts succeed, it could be a negative for Google (GOOG), given its dependence on ad sales related to product searches. Last November, eBay bought recommendation engine Hunch.com.

    As PayPal (EBAY), Google (GOOG), and others bet big on a mobile payments market many expect to take off, consumer security and privacy fears could limit near-term growth. A survey asking U.S. consumers about the technology found large majorities opposed to sharing tracking and contact info with stores they visit. Perhaps most worryingly, 74% said they're unlikely to adopt mobile payments. (previous)

    Looking to challenge market leader Flipkart and a slew of other local players, eBay (EBAY) is boosting its Indian e-commerce investments. The online auction giant hopes PayPal integration will give it an edge in a country where cash-on-delivery is the most common payment method. Looming on the horizon is Amazon (AMZN), which recently launched Indian price-comparison site Junglee.com.

    Mobile payments juggernaut Square says it's now handling $5B (annualized) in transactions, up from $4B just a month ago and $2B in October. Square, said to be seeking funding at a $4B valuation, is popular with small businesses not only because of its low fee and ease-of-use, but also its ability to pay merchants within a day of a purchase, compared with 2-5 days for regular credit-card payments. PayPal Here has its work cut out for it.

    eBay (EBAY +16%) is now making new 52-week highs on the back of its Q1 beat and strong PayPal data. Piper is joining Benchmark in upgrading shares in response; though the firm doesn't see much earnings upside over the next 2 years, it expects bullishness about PayPal's mobile payments position to drive shares higher. PayPal expects to handle $7B worth of mobile payments in 2012, up from 2011's $4B. (transcript)

    eBay (EBAY) +9.1% premarket after reporting Q1 sales and profit that topped estimates, spurred by growth in its PayPal online payments business. Benchmark upgrades shares to Buy from Hold, believing the market opportunity for PayPal is understated given the potential for a meaningful increase in merchant and consumer adoption rates.

    PayPal (EBAY) follows up on the release of Square rival PayPal Here by launching PayPal Payments, an all-in-one solution for small businesses that covers online, in-store, and mobile payments. Both free and paid service plans will be offered. Also, in order to drive home the fact PayPal is no longer a mere PC web payment solution, the company is removing the word "website" from all its products.
