Last year, PayPal retooled its iOS and Android apps to introduce a lot of new digital wallet features in the U.S., most noticeably the ability to pay from your smartphone at restaurants either ahead of time or when you get your bill. Now PayPal is bringing those services to international markets, starting with the U.K. Among PayPal’s first U.K. customers are Wagamama, which started taking pre-orders through the app; Prezzo, which will bill your smartphone and even split bills digitally between customers; and Gourmet Burger Kitchen, which will let you pick up your order by merely flashing their PayPal profile picture. Though PayPal is most known for its online peer-to-peer payments service, it’s been expanding into the many different facets of mobile payments: in-app commerce, point-of-sale credit card transactions, location-targeted deals and, most recently, the digital wallet. The new restaurant payment features don’t use near-field communications (NFC) like new smartphone payment systems from Isis, Mastercard or Visa. Instead they just rely on an internet connection. PayPal is now accepted as tender in more than 2000 U.K. stores. Get the full story at GigaOM
