What is a Credit Card?

A credit card is a payment card used to make purchases, pay bills, etc. We use Credit Cards online on websites, mobile phones, or physically in department stores, hotels, airports, etc.

How do Credit Cards work?

Credit cards have a spending limit called the Credit Limit. This limit dictates how much you can borrow from the credit card issuer and spend on purchases. You get a bill at the end of the billing period. You must pay the bill with real money within a stipulated time, called the credit period. Credit card issuers such as banks impose hefty fines when people fail to pay the due amount. It is one of the alternative ways the card issuer makes money out of credit cards. The other being a commission that the merchant pays on each transaction (generally 2%).

Credit Card Issuers

Visa & Mastercard are the two leading credit card issuers. The others being American Express (or AMEX), Diners Club, Discover, etc.
