Credit Card Bill Payment Options for banks across India
A credit card is a plastic card which a financial company/bank issues to the users for enabling them to borrow funds from bank to pay for daily expenditures like utility bills, mobile bills or buying other goods and services on the stipulation that user will pay back the amount to the bank with an additional interest. Now the spending trend is changing from using credit card for large transactions to daily utilisation for any place where users are not able to pay by cash or debit cards because now people are having more understanding on use of credit card for moving credit and thus a single user may have multiple cards from different banks to have the provision of benefits given by card issuers.
The banks also provides line of credit (where a maximum limit of spending is set for the borrower by the bank in agreement ) which is accessible by user as long as he/she is not exceeding limit and doing minimum payments on time. Line of credit has breaking down flexibility as well in which user can request a particular amount which he or she don’t need to spend at one time rather they can customise their spending as per need and they would have to pay interest, only on the amount they borrowed. Banks issue credit cards mostly in association with Visa, Master card, Discover and American Express. Credit cards can be differentiated on the basis of incentives and rewards provided to users.
