Step 1

Credit Card

It is a card issued to customers for making payment towards goods and services. These cards are issued by banks or financial institutions which allow the cardholders to borrow money from them in order to make payments for consumption. Each cardholder has a set transaction limit based on his/her credibility. The card issuer charges the holder on the unpaid balance of each month in the subsequent months. The interest rates for this charge is predefined and are different for different institutions.

Step 2
