PayPal and Toronto-based TouchBistro have partnered up to pilot a program that will see customers at some Toronto restaurants paying with their phones over the cloud.

TouchBistro provides iPad-based point of sale terminals to restaurants including Steamwhistle Brewery, Fidel Gastro’s, Spirithouse and Jimmy’s Coffee, where the pilot scheme will be tested.

The company uses the cloud to connect iPads to cash drawers and printers, a system that will now be trialled with phones. Customers at Jimmy’s Coffee will be able to check into the café and pay via PayPal, using the payment service’s existing check in feature.

When customers check in, café employees will be able to see their name and picture for easy identification.
