Are there any privacy/security risks associated with using payment handlers in Google Chrome?

Somehow, the idea of having my financial information stored in a browser makes me feel uncomfortable. I almost always use PayPal whenever I decide to shop on non-Amazon websites to avoid giving my financial information directly to the website, so should I disable this?

To be clear, the setting I'm asking about can be found in Google Chrome under Settings > Advanced > Content settings > Payment Handlers.
