Microsoft Pay has now been updated with support for Masterpass. It will be available to U.S.-based users on Windows 10 using the latest version of its Edge browser to make secure payments online. The service supports debit and credit cards from Mastercard, Visa, Discover, and American Express.
To take advantage of this service, you will need to link your Microsoft account with Masterpass. Once the account has been linked, payments can be made without re-entering payment information on authorized websites.
Raj Dhamodharan, senior VP of Digital Solutions at Mastercard commented:
“We are deeply committed to powering a secure and optimized shopping experience that consumers and merchants deserve. Integrating technologies like Microsoft Pay with Masterpass will help the industry move to standards-based payments. Microsoft is a great partner and we will continue to collaborate with Microsoft to make shopping a better experience on all devices.”
The Redmond giant renamed its Wallet service to Microsoft Pay last year which also brought support for the service on Windows 10. However, it is still restricted to Microsoft Edge with no announcements about its availability on alternate browsers.
Will White, partner group program manager at Microsoft commented:
“We are always seeking to enhance our users shopping experience in a secure and simple manner and this latest release does that by leveraging the growing Masterpass network.”
MasterCard first announced the integration of Masterpass with Microsoft Pay (known as Wallet back then) in October 2016 and it has taken both of these companies a long time to finally bring the service to users.
