Microsoft Pay comes to Outlook.com

08.05.18

Microsoft Pay (Microsoft’s answer to Google Pay and Apple Pay) is coming into Outlook. This means that when a company sends you an invoice in an email, and you are using Outlook to read it, you can pay that bill directly, without needing to leave Outlook and open a different app or service. As it launches — Microsoft says it will come first to a limited number of Outlook.com users over the next few weeks, and then more broadly over the next few months — it said that Stripe (using Stripe Connect) and Braintree will be among the payment processors powering the service, and Zuora, FreshBooks, Intuit, Invoice2Go, Sage, Wave, and Xero will be among the billing and invoicing services that will initially be using the feature.

Microsoft Pay alternatives are: Google Pay, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay
