    I want to buy some apps for a friend using my credit card as she doesn't have one. So by logging into her lumia using my info, purchase the apps and then logging out and removing my account, would she still be able to purchase apps when she has logged back in using her account details? And how do I remove my credit card details from her lumia?

    Just download the Microsoft gift card app and send her a gift card.

    I don't know if it's possible where your at but couldn't you just buy her a Windows gift card... You can buy online if there is not a Microsoft store in your area.

    No you can not login on here phone with your account and than buy an app. (as can be done in android).
    You have to add your credit card in here Microsoft account.
    Than she can buy a app (your credit card will be visible in here Wallet app)
    Than you have to go in here ms account and remove your credit card out here MS account.

    But she also could buy a Microsoft gift card. (or Xbox gift card) and add that to here account.

    The Micro soft gift card app as mentioned in the first reply is i think only valid in the USA.

    I mean to use her phone as if it were mine as if she doesn't have a Microsoft account, allowing me to log into the phone, make purchases that she wants and then logout again so that my credit card cannot be used by her.

    The Digital Gift Card is not available in my region.

    okay you can use 1 Microsoft account on more phones. (I my family I have 4 phones with the same ms account).
    (If you do that then you also have the same contact list and agenda)
    If you put a pin code on the wallet app of your friend than she can not use it to buy apps.
    And also because you have the same MS account you only need to buy the app ones. So if you buy it on your phone she can download it for free.
    So if she wants a app you even do not need to use here phone. Just download (and pay it ) on your phone and than she can down load it later.
    Or even login on the store on your computer and "send" it to here.
    Is this wanted to know?

    To log in on HER phone with YOUR Microsoft Account you have to Factory Reset, she looses all HER data and you input your Microsoft Account during setup. Then to log out of YOUR Microsoft Account you need to Factory Reset again loosing all YOUR data including the app you just bought her so she can use HER Microsoft Account on the setup and restore her data.

    ​Just buy her some flowers and a box of candy.

    Just buy a low value prepaid visa or mastercard. I have done this myself as I don't want my main card attached to the account.

    Works great

    Tell her to pay for it herself and not to be so cheap!

    Never share credit card information with anyone other than your spouse. Try the gift card option please.
