“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!

@mehua Well, so much for using Edge anymore. I actually decided to make it my main browser on my server, and... this is completely ruining any good will you had, and is likely something that will prevent me from ever using your browser again. I gave it a try. It was good. You ruined it.
Just a tip for future development: if it's not core to a web browsing experience or security in that experience, it doesn't belong baked into the browser. It doesn't matter how much money you're getting to put in bloated adware. The fact that you're selling out your web browser is disgusting.

@NerdelbaumFrink There is a good case for building browsers with differentiating features (otherwise we might as well all just be using Chrome and Safari) and MS have done a good job with adding stuff that Chrome should have put in years ago. But MS also seem addicted to these spammy, half-baked tie-ins with random companies that will be dropped anyway in a year or two. See the Pinterest integration in Collections (why??). This one is presumably driven by some manager stressing about Edge not hitting revenue / engagement targets, caring nothing about the fact that they're corrupting their core browser with gimmicky, exploitative rubbish. It's a shame because chromium Edge has been a genuine success in my view, and has even made browser choice relevant again.

How do I turn this off? I don't want to spend one CPU cycle on this and I don't want it popping up.
