What is Credit Card?

Today, credit cards are an inevitable part of life. A benefit, accorded to individuals with the means to repay a loan or obligation in the stipulated time (as proven by their analysed credit histories), credit cards are a common mode of purchase and payments. In India, almost all nationalized and private banks, alongside a sizable number of private and public sector banking institutions offer their patrons the unlimited advantage of highly personalized credit cards.

BankBazaar offers you a wide selection of these cards, alongside the option to apply for them directly online. Why would you need a credit card? Read on…

How to use Credit Card? - Features of Credit Card:

The fundamental advantage of owning a credit card is that it eliminates the need for liquid cash, thereby offering protection to your monies and seamless convenience to you. Instead of buying products or services with hard currency, a simple swipe at the retailer’s outlet is all that it takes. Alongside this convenience, credit cards offer a string of other benefits including,

  1. Cash Back- For a designated amount spent using the credit card, a percentage is credited back to you. Usually, the cash back earned can be adjusted against the repayments due on your card.
  2. Reward Points- A specific limit of spending on your credit card earns you a specified number of reward points. These points can be redeemed for gifts, products and services on the bank’s own online facility or across a third party platform.
  3. Interest Free Credit- 0% interest rate on purchases done using the credit card. That’s right, a spend of Rs. X requires you to pay back just Rs. X and nothing more.
  4. Discount Offers- Partnerships between the card issuing bank and retail chains, e-commerce websites and other shopping facilities offer a specified percentage of discounts if the former’s credit card is used in the transaction at the said shopping facility.
  5. Co-Branded Cards- These cards as issued by a particular bank or financial institution is in association with another business organization wherein special privileges including discounts and reward points are offered to a customer who shops at the said business outlet. The co-branded cards usually display the logos of both partners and is beneficial to those who frequent a said business outlet. Co-branding is common between banks and airline companies, petrol station franchises and promoters of high-end lifestyle products and services.
  6. Source of Ready Cash- Your credit card can also be used at an ATM to draw out money. While the interest applicable on such transactions are usually very high, this option could be handy through an unforeseen financial contingency.

What Happens after I Swipe My Credit Card at a Merchant’s POS Machine?

Of course, the million dollar question. While the mechanics of using a credit card on a day-to-day basis isn’t too complicated, the associated back-end process associated with a simple card swipe is too technical for a common individual to comprehend. In actuality, the procedure is very simple and safe-

  1. Purchase over, you hand the credit card to the retailer to pay for your purchase. He swipes, with an accompanying smile, of course.
  2. The merchant’s Point of Sale (POS) system is connected to the merchant’s bank via a communication link.
  3. Thanks to the POS system, your details are verified in real-time using the electronic verification system by the merchant’s bank. The verification is with regards to your credentials, validity of the card and availability of sufficient balance to pay for the purchase.
  4. Post the verification from the merchant’s bank, the details are forwarded to your bank for payment authorization if all the information is in order.
  5. When the merchant’s bank receives this authorization, it blocks the requisite amount from your credit limit to account for the purchase later on. Next, it generates an approval code that is transmitted to the merchant.
  6. At the merchant outlet where you stand for the clearance to affect quickly, the retailer receives this code and must key it in to obtain two charge slip copies from the POS system. One of these slips signifies your agreement with the card issuing bank to pay for the current purchase. You sign on this slip and return it back to the retailer. The other copy is yours to take away from this transaction.
  7. Safe, comprehensive and fast, all of these steps were affected in less than 2 minutes. Neat, right?

Borrowing from a popular axiom, ‘With great power comes great responsibility’, and the same holds very true in the case of credit cards. While a handy financial help, a source of ready cash and a safe and beneficial way to pay for your purchases, the misuse of this facility could be detrimental to your long term financial health. Credit card debt, defaulting on your monthly repayments or drawing up a massive pile of credit card purchases and consequently, a stiff interest rate are things to be constantly aware of. The best way to enjoy your credit card is responsibly and with caution and tolerance. While the temptation may be high to unleash a shopping spree with your brand new credit card, remember, the money you spend is not your own- it must be returned back, with interest and on time!!

A credit card is a payment card issued by a particular bank for customers looking to avail instant credits to easily purchase goods and services without spending a single penny from their pockets. The bank extends a line of credit with which the user borrows money, to be paid to a merchant. The cardholder is required to pay back the borrowed sum of money subsequently to the lender bank along with extra interest rates.

  3. What are the different types of credit cards available for customers in India?
  4. Credit cards in India are available in different variants like Gold, Silver, Platinum, Titanium, Classic, Premium and Business, distinguished by the level of services they offer.

    • Auto and fuel credit cards
    • Travel cards
    • Entertainment cards

    • Insurance coverage
    • Rewards points
    • Air Miles
    • Fuel surcharge waivers
    • Pre-approved loans on credit cards
    • Payment via monthly EMIs

  6. How do I own a credit card in India?
  7. Customers need to get in touch with an executive from a bank of their choice and submit a filled-in application form with the required documents. The bank will process your application after appraising your credit history and will then approve the new credit card according to your requirements.

  8. How important is it to understand the interest rate charged by a bank on a particular credit card?
  9. In India, banks charge the highest rate of interests for credit cards, from 36% to 42% per annum. A bank decides the interest rate for a particular customer based on his credit history, financial capability and also depending on the type of card he chooses. Applicants with good credit scores and regular payment patterns get the best deals on their credit card interest rates.

  10. What are the different payment networks utilized by banks in India for credit card transactions?
  11. Banks in India have tied up with Visa, MasterCard and American Express (AMEX) to process credit card payments, connecting merchant accounts with the acquiring banks.

  12. What are the eligibility requirements to be fulfilled while acquiring a credit card?
  13. In India, banks generally offer credit cards to individuals above the age of 21 and with a steady monthly income. As part of their verification process, banks do a deep dive into the customer’s credit history and assess previous payment patterns to understand the customer’s financial situation. Only after ensuring that the applicant has the financial capability to repay the expenses incurred using a credit card, will the bank approve the customer’s application.

  14. Is there a minimum salary criterion required to be met while applying for credit cards in India?
  15. Yes, in India applicants are required to earn a minimum of Rs 75,000 to 1 Lakh per annum, though this criterion varies depending on the type of the card.

  16. What does APR refer to with respect to a credit card?
  17. Annual Percentage Rate (APR) or the ‘’cost’’ at which a customer takes credit from a bank, is the simple interest rate charged by a bank on expenses incurred on a credit card for a year.

  18. Do banks levy any charges for late payment of credit card bills?
  19. The best mantra while managing a credit card is to ‘’Pay as and when you can”. Delaying a credit card payment is not a wise option, as banks tend to impose high late payment fees and gradually increase the interest rates charged. The customer would actually end up paying way more than his original purchase amount.

  20. Do add-on or supplementary cards carry the same features as their primary credit cards?
  21. Add-on cards can be taken for family members of the primary card holder with extra charges anywhere between Rs 125 to Rs 1000. The credit limit of the primary card gets carried over to the new card with similar features. Also customers can get a comprehensive bill with details of both the cards.

  22. How do global cards help a frequent traveller?
  23. Global credit cards give a customer the leeway of instantly performing cashless transactions from any corner of the globe. Accepted worldwide, global cards give you the flexibility of spending in any foreign currency and later paying your bills in your local currency. A customer can also avoid the hassle of carrying huge amounts of cash or using traveller’s checks.

  24. What do credit card reward programs offer?
  25. Credit card reward programs have been introduced by lenders to popularize the various cards they offer by rewarding a customer for transacting using their credit card. The cardholder is awarded points as per his expenditure for purchasing goods and services. The accumulated points can later be redeemed by customers for certain discounts and gifts as per the bank’s guidelines.

  26. What measures are Indian banks required to take to avoid credit card fraud?
  27. The Reserve Bank of India mandates the provision of multiple levels of authentication from banks, for customers using credit cards to make an online purchases. Additionally, customers are advised by banks to use their credit card credentials only in encrypted internet connections to avoid fraudulent transactions.

  28. How does the cash advance facility help an Indian credit card holder?
  29. Customers can also use their credit cards as ATM cards and withdraw a stipulated amount of cash, preset by the bank as cash advance. Though this feature gives a customer access to instant cash, the bank charges very high interest rates for credit taken using this facility.

  • Uber Experiments with Cash Payments in India

    Uber, the global cashless taxi-hailing giant, is facing the realities of the Indian market by trying out cash payments for rides in Hyderabad. The city proved to be the most apt to try out the experiment owing to its sizeable and sophisticated rider and driver community.

    Uber’s global success was due to its cashless model, allowing customers to ride taxis and be charged to their credit cards. It faced issues in India as the RBI mandates a two-factor authentication for credit card transactions. Last year, Uber had tied up with PayTM, allowing users to store a virtual wallet which they could top up through their debit cards, ATMs and net banking.

    Its major competitor in India, Olacabs, has operations running in 40 cities, while Uber stands at 11. This is largely due to the fact that India operates largely on cash. Credit card users account for around 2% of the population, omitting a huge market for Uber.

    Uber users will get an option of cash in the payment section in the top left corner which must be opted for before booking a ride. Customers are still required to have a valid credit card or wallet linked to the app. However, they are not required to have a minimum balance in the wallet to be able to book a ride.

  • When Lending is Low- Credit Cards Steal the Show!

    Corporate lending, the act of forwarding large sums of money to the corporate sector, has always been the mainstay for banks in India. However, the recent economic slowdown and the collective crawl out of its depressing influence, has wreaked havoc on large investment projects and severely affected corporate profits. Thus, banks are forced to look at alternatives- and thereby is the second coming of credit cards. With a largely untapped domestic market, a string of new and appealing products and some inspired marketing, banks are hoping to make up for the slowdown with brisk credit card sales. Almost all major lenders are targeting big percentages and are hopeful that the market will respond likewise. Like they say, make hay while the sun shines, or in this case, when your A-game isn’t working out.

    I have credit card taken from Citibank. It is a Indian oil card. This is mainly used for fuel. The reward points can be easily redeemed it. When ever I purchase anything I used to get more points and even when I purchase oil mainly. It also has a petrol benefits. It would be much better if they reduces the interest rate in terms of personal loan.

    I am holding a SCB credit card. My feedback for them its they are really good. I normally use this card for minimal usage the credit limit offered by them was initially less. They themselves pro actively enhanced the limit. Recently before 3 months back they have reduced my limit however they did not intimate me about the limit decrease. Mine is a platinum credit card it is very easy to make the payment as I hold an account with them.

    I get beneficiary offers while using this Citibank Indian Oil credit card in Indian oil pumps and no service charges. Specifically such service charges would be waived off only in Indian oil petrol pumps. I also get turbo points on this credit card and one point is equal to one rupee. Accumulated points can utilize in shopping.
