What is a credit card?
A credit card is a payment card that allows you to make purchases and transactions with ease. You can use a credit card for purchases online and in-store, as well as bill payments.
A credit card is essentially short-term financing given by a bank and comes with a credit limit (the maximum amount that you can borrow). When you use a credit card, you receive a monthly statement that shows you the amount you need to pay to the bank. You can choose to pay off the full balance or make a minimum payment, however, you will be charged interest on the remaining balance.
