“Buy now, pay later,” or BNPL, lets shoppers break their purchases into equal installment payments, often interest-free, which can allow shoppers to get their purchase upfront, instead of having to wait until it’s paid in full.
Usually, BNPL is offered in specific ecommerce websites like Target, Walmart. But now, Microsoft partners with 3rd party Zip (previously Quadpay) to offer a BNPL payment option at browser level. It means any purchase between $35 - $1,000 you make through Microsoft Edge can be split into 4 installments over 6 weeks.
On top of coverage, we also aim to 1) meet you where you are. 2) simplify the application process.
When you are in checkout page, you can find BNPL option right when you enter credit card number
For some shoppers, you can also find BNPL option right when you enter checkout page.
Applying BNPL could take time, you need to sign in with zip every single time. With BNPL in Edge, you can simply link your Microsoft account with your zip account with one click and then bypass sign in from Zip side. It can expedite the application process for you.
BNPL is currently available in Microsoft Edge Canary and Dev channels and will be available by default to all users in Microsoft Edge release 96. If you experience any issue while using this feature, please let us know through Microsoft Edge by pressing Shift+Alt+I on a Windows device or going to Settings and more … > Help and feedback > Send feedback.
You can read more on the FAQ support article. Please also join us here on the Microsoft Edge Insider forums or Twitter to discuss your experience or send us your feedback through the browser! We hope you enjoy this exciting new feature and look forward to hearing from you!

I totally agree with you. If this feature goes live, microsoft edge will again become a legacy browser filled with bloat that nobody asked for.

@mehua If the team has so much time to spare in these unwanted features, why don't you improve the performance of edge.
I have mentioned so many ideas and you are from the team, you must be knowing a lot more problems.
Work on these, why waste time in providing bloat.

@mehua Also make the force block all ads in developer settings perpetual. We won't need any adblockers.

@mehua Also give the option to darken and un-darken any page without actually restarting the browser. You have this provided as a setting in developer settings, but not to regular users.
Provide this as a moon or sun option in the toolbar or tab bar.

I can't find the setting to turn this off and it clutters the payment methods I have stored. I know I never want to use this - how do I remove it from the display?

@mehua This all feels extremely unnecessary for a browsing experience. I don't want it. I don't even want the shopping and discovery features y'all have pushed out. These kinds of things should be separated into extensions. I am way more interested in a lightning fast browser that uses minimal resources while being secure. Edge on Mac is getting heavier and heavier.
Please stop turning all these things on by default, or at least give us an option for a "Core" experience that is basic browsing features plus the security enhancements. As it stands right now, I spend about 5-6 minutes making sure that all the extra crap is disabled whenever I set up Edge on a new computer or move between channels.

@Jp12345 The fact that it's is in the browser code means that even if I'm not using it adds to the size of the browser and slows down viewing web pages. They already have a mechanism called extensions which allow people to optionally add things like this. Most people want a browser that loads and displays web pages as fast as possible and doesn't consume all of the memory on their machine.

I think the next feature they are going to add will be Payday Loans in Edge, because why not.
