Microsoft not too long ago introduced a new feature for Microsoft Edge known as Shopping with Microsoft Edge. It’s an impressive tool, that will save you money while shopping online, but more so for anyone who shops online on a regular basis. Now, to take advantage of this feature, you must be living in a supported country.
What is Shopping in Microsoft Edge?
Shopping in Microsoft Edge feature helps to automatically find coupons, better prices, and rebates while you shop online or browse supported websites to find products or purchase them. A list of all available coupons on that site can be accessed from a sidebar. If you take advantage of Shopping with Microsoft Edge, then the tool will check multiple retailers in a bit to locate the lowest prices with the help of coupons.
How to tell if Shopping with Microsoft Edge is supported on your computer?
OK, so as we’ve stated before, this feature is not available for everyone. If you want to find out, then we suggest opening your Edge web browser and visit edge://settings/privacy. If you do not see “Save time and money with Shopping in Microsoft Edge” under the Services banner, then you’re out of luck for now.
