Microsoft used to have a service called Wallet that stored all your bank and loyalty cards. The company rebranded the platform to Microsoft Pay to better compete against Android Pay and Apple Pay. Think of it as Microsoft's version of PayPal. Microsoft recently added support for Masterpass, so we're intrigued to learn if you've been using the service to make purchases online.
Community member Lobo Technician took to our forum to ask who has been using the service and recommends it to newcomers and those looking to switch from other solutions.
It's a fairly seamless experience, requiring you to have a valid payment gateway enabled. Humorously, I can use Microsoft Pay, which uses my PayPal account to fund the transaction. The issue Microsoft has with Pay is PayPal is extraordinarily convenient and is supported by many online merchants. If the tech giant is able to get a grasp on the market and manages to get more big sites under its belt, I can certainly see the service growing.
