Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 lets you manage your credit cards, debit cards, and PayPal info, to make payment easier. It is very similar to how you save passwords in any browser. The idea is to make payments seamless. However, unlike autofill, it’s more secure and uses Microsoft Pay. That said, Microsoft has expanded “Microsoft Pay” to work over Outlook, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Windows Store, and so on. The system goes beyond this, Microsoft can also pull your shipping address as well, making shopping seamless. Coming back to our topic, here we are talking about how to Add, Remove, Manage Credit Cards in Microsoft Edge on Windows 10.
