Microsoft Pay now works with Masterpass to streamline online payments

Microsoft announced today that Microsoft Pay is now integrated with Mastercard's Masterpass service, allowing you to connect your accounts to streamline online payments. In bringing the two together, you'll now be able to have the shipping address and payment information from your Microsoft account automatically filled when checking out with Masterpass online.

Speaking on the new partnership, Will White, partner group program manager at Microsoft, said:

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. We will continue to seek opportunities to enhance the shopping experience by leveraging standards and working with innovative partners like Mastercard.

The integration is currently available to U.S. users in the latest version of the Microsoft Edge browser while logged in with your Microsoft account.

Though Masterpass is a Mastercard initiative, it works with any debit or credit card from Mastercard, Visa, Discover, and American Express. If you want to get started with this new integration, you can begin the process of linking your accounts at Microsoft. From there, you can then look for the Masterpass button when making payments online to have your payment and shipping details automatically applied to your purchase.
