Check out the companies making headlines after the bell Wednesday:

Shares of PayPal slid nearly 1.5 percent on Wednesday after a report surfaced that Apple will roll out a mobile person-to-person payment system. Apple is in talks with U.S. banks to develop a service, similar to Paypal's Venmo, that would allow consumers to "zap" payments from their checking accounts to recipients through their Apple devices, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Angie's List popped more than 11 percent after IAC/InterActiveCorp announced it had proposed a merger. Angie's has so far rebuffed an all-cash offer by the media company. The all-cash proposal would have represented a premium of more than 50 percent, IAC said in a statement.

Shares of NCR rose nearly 4 percent after a report that Blackstone was nearing a deal to invest more than $800 million in the computer company. The Wall Street Journal also reported that NCR plans to announce a $1 billion share buyback program.

Macy's continued to slide after the closing bell. Earlier in the day, the retailer slashed its guidance for the third quarter and the full year. Shares were down nearly half a percent after hours; they lost nearly 14 percent during the session.

Shares of Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen popped more than 5 percent after it reported results that beat Wall Street expectations. The fast-food chicken chain expects full-year earnings in the range of $1.86 to $1.91 per share.
