The new application incorporates the main features previously offered on iPhone, to which is added a battery of new options.

The iPad can for example be connected wirelessly to a cash drawer. The app also supports multiple business users on the same device. And, traders also have the ability to scan products through a barcode system.

In parallel with this launch, Paypal also announced yesterday that it had made the acquisition of the start-up Duff Research, specializing in mobile payment. The amount of the transaction was not disclosed. With this takeover, the 18 employees of the start-up will join the Paypal teams.

As a reminder, the last acquisition of Paypal made public dates back to last summer with the takeover of the start-up Card.io.
