Use of Credit Cards

Today credit cards have found massive usage due to the convenience they offer. Unlike the old days, you do not have to carry cash all the time. Whenever you go out for shopping, all you need to do is take your credit card with you, shop whatever you want, swipe your credit card at merchant’s machine and walk out with your purchase. Simple, isn't it? In addition to the simplicity, Card issuers offer many type of benefits like cash back, reward points, interest free credit and discount offers on purchases made at select stores. All this makes it attractive to use a credit card in lieu of cash for your purchases. If you are wondering, "What happens after I swipe my card at merchant’s machine?", then read on to know more.

What happens after I swipe my Credit card at merchant’s POS machine?

When you hand over your credit card to the cashier to pay for your purchases he takes it and swipes it in the merchant's point of sale (POS) system. This system is connected to the merchant's bank via a communication link. This POS system helps in verifying your data by using an electronic verification system. The details verified include the validity of your card and the availability of sufficient balance on your credit card to pay for the purchases.

Once your details are transmitted to the merchant's bank, they are sent to your bank which then authorizes the payment if all the details are in order. This authorization is then sent to the merchant's bank, which then blocks the amount from your credit limit so as to reimburse it to the merchant later on. The authorization generates an approval code and is transmitted to the merchant. This code has to be keyed in by the cashier, after which two copies of charge slip are generated. This charge slip is your agreement to pay your issuing bank the amount of purchase. You then sign one copy of the charge slip and take the other one with you, along with your purchase.

Just like you, there are many others who use credit cards for their purchases. They also generate their own charge slips. All these charge slips are stored in batches and submitted by the merchant to his bank, once a day at the end of the working day. But remember, the nature of the relationship of the merchant with his bank is far different from your relation with your bank. It is called a merchant account and is actually a line of credit rather than a regular account. As per this contract, the bank agrees to undertake collection of payments on behalf of the merchant from his customers' banks. These payments are credited to the merchant's bank accounts after deducting the fees for all the services involved.

When the merchant deposits these batches in his bank, they are sent by the merchant's bank for clearing and settlement through the credit card association. This association charges your purchase amount to your bank and pays the amount to the merchant's bank. The merchant's bank then reimburses this amount to the merchant.

Your bank now charges your purchase amount to your credit card account. On the specific date, your bank will generate an account statement, listing all the credit and debit transactions in your account. If the debits are higher than credits, you have to pay the difference to your bank. You will also be given a due date, which is the last date by which you have to repay your bank in full. Failure to pay off this amount in full by due date will mean you will have to pay late fees as well as interest charges to the bank. These fees and charges can be very high, so be very careful.

Credit cards are a powerful credit tool to help you tide over short term financial requirements. However they must be used judiciously, as any misuse of the credit card can lead to high charges and make you fall into a debt trap, besides dropping your credit score drastically. So the watch word is - BE DISCIPLINED TO REPAY your credit card!

As the time is changing, the credit card providers have started tailoring their cards as per one’s requirements.

Types of Credit Cards

The different type of credit cards offered include:
  • Airline credit cards - Airline credit cards are primarily designed for those who frequently travel by air. These cards are generally co-branded with some airline service provider wherein the rewards are provided in the form of air miles. The card holders can use/ redeem these air miles during their next travel. In addition to air miles, the card holders can enjoy several other benefits like complimentary Lounge access at key airports in India and abroad, occasional discounts on air fare, special discounts in their network restaurants etc.
  • Lifestyle credit cards - Lifestyle credit cards are tailored to match your elite lifestyle. They offer gourmet experiences through luxurious travel and fine dining, access to airport lounges, free membership to selected golf courses and platinum concierge to assist you anywhere in the globe. With extraordinary benefits and higher credit limits, these cards can be obtained if the applicant has a good credit and repayment history or a huge monthly income.
  • Fuel credit cards - As fuel expenses are shooting up, the best thing to have as a reward is free petrol/ diesel in your vehicle. These cards are one of the best in the industry because they give you a wide variety of redemption options. You can redeem your points instantly over the Fuel counter for free petrol/ diesel, shopping at stores, online shopping, air miles, adjust against card outstanding, purchase gift vouchers or rewards merchandise.
  • Shopping credit cards – These type of Credit cards are designed for those who are deemed to be more shopaholic (doesn’t mean they spend carelessly) and adore to get rewarded for their spending. The rewards from these type of cards can be redeemed instantly at shopping outlets and e-shopping partners, or for various other options like fuel, Air Miles, Cash Back, Online shopping, gift vouchers and Card issuer’s catalog Merchandise.
  • Cashback credit cards – Under these credit cards, the card holders are rewarded for their spending i.e. a percentage of the amount spent is paid back to the card holder. The users can generally get their cash back conveniently and automatically as statement credit (on request). In addition to regular benefits, the users get several other privileges like dining, shopping and EMI privileges.

    The Platinum plus corporate card with HDFC was good. I blocked this card due to some issues and even after that I received an email stating there is a remaining balance for payment. I followed up with them regarding this issue, however there was no response and at last approached the branc, got a resolution and received my NOC.

    I have been holding a credit card of HDFC bank for the past 6 months. HDFC bank is providing the best services and there are no hidden charges at all. Reward points program is good and it is easily redeemable as gifts & vouchers. I think the rate of interest is normal and no annual fee on the card.

    HDFC Platinum Credit Card the experience is excellent they provide good facilities in terms on cash on call, for late payment they provide grace period and charges are less for late payment. When ever i am converting my purchase into EMI rate of interest is quite less, i have not faced any disadvantage as such.

    Citi Bank credit card : It's a shopper stop shopping card the process of dealing with this credit card is pretty smooth. First of all this card does not have the annual fees and the additional charges. When ever i swipe the card i get the call from the customer service executive verifying that the card was swipe by me or not.

    Citi Bank credit card: It's a Rewards card initially it was good and when i started using this card and the amount started increasing it was a disappointing since the charges where huge and the interest rate was way too high. If they can reduce the interest rate that would be more helpful to the customer.

    Being an HDFC customer I am getting spontaneous promotional offers from them through mail and reminders over the phone. I am swipping my VISA INTERNATIONAL CREDIT CARD for all types of shopping which is really useful for me to get the reward points easily. Interest rates was fair and neutral.

    I would call its a average card, I am holding a HDFC Platinum Credit Card the offers and features of the card are not that attractive. There is a lot of hidden cost, the billed amount does not tally. I am happy with the credit limit that they are providing this makes me to carry this card where ever I go and nothing new about this card.
