Santa Claus comes around just once a year. In the meantime, there are Credit Cards.

Credit Card Bill Payment Online

One of the important aspects to remember while using credit cards is to clear the outstanding dues on time.

When the credit card statement is generated, the bank sends a message with the total outstanding and the payment due date.

After that it's our responsibility to remember the due date and make the payment accordingly. If we don't pay the credit card bill on time, we must pay the late payment fee along with the associated interest. Further, all the new spending we do on the card would accrue interest till the outstanding is cleared.

All this would add up to your actual credit card bill and make it look huge. Therefore, paying your credit card bill on time is imperative to have your credit card spends under control.

Card issuers provide various online and offline channels to make your credit card bill payment with ease and convenience. However, choosing a right channel is important as the processing time varies for each.

Listed below are various online and offline modes to make a credit card payment. Not all the methods are offered by every bank or card issuer. Based on your card provider, you can choose one and plan your payment accordingly.

Credit Card Bill Payment FAQs:

  1. What are the consequences of missing credit card payments?
  2. You should never miss paying at least the minimum amount due on your credit card. If you do miss a payment, a fee will be levied. The bank may also increase your interest rate. If you continue to miss payments after notifications and reminders, this could result in your card being blocked till the payment is made in full.

    Upon continuous default, the bank might list you as a defaulter and report your account details to CIBIL. This might impact your credit score and hamper future credit opportunities. Banks also have the right to impose legal action to recover the dues.

  3. When will I receive my credit card statement?
  4. Each bank sets different credit card billing dates. For example, if the billing date on your credit card is the 20th of every month, the bill will be generated on 20th and sent to you.

    Your statement will be sent via post or email, as per your preference. However, if the outstanding amount is less than the minimum amount or when the total due on the card is nil, you might not receive any statement.

  5. Does it mean my bill is zero if I do not receive a credit card statement?
  6. Not necessarily. If you haven't spent on your credit card, you may not receive a statement for that month. If you recall spending on your credit card or you are not sure, and you do not receive a statement, please call your bank's customer service to ensure that there is no payment to be made.

  7. Which is the fastest method to pay my credit card bill?
  8. The fastest method depends on how long your bank takes to process the payment. Generally, the fastest mode of bill payment is online banking where it is processed instantly.

  9. What is the processing time of credit card cheque payments?
  10. Cheque payments can take up to 7 working days. Outstation cheques may take up to 21 days. Hence, make sure your cheque is deposited ahead of the due date to avoid missing the payment.

News About Credit Card Bill Payment

  • Credit Card Transactions on Mobile Wallets Decline in November’18

    As per the recent date from the RBI, a total of 347.32 million mobile wallet transactions, worth Rs.16,108 crore, were recorded in the month of November against 368.45 million transactions (Rs.18,786 crore) in the previous month. 

    The transaction volume declined by 5.7% month over month while the transaction value was 14% lower. 

    The decline in the transactions is attributed to the shut out of mobile wallet companies due to Aadhaar-based identification to sign-up new customers in those months.  

    Ever since the Supreme Court has given its judgement to use of Aadhaar only for welfare schemes and delivering state subsidies, some wallet companies moved to an offline identification mechanism. This resulted in the rise of authentication costs from Rs.15 per person under e-KYC, to Rs.100-150 per person for a physical KYC. 

    Hence, the mobile wallet companies mentioned the decline in the transactions is due to the restricted on-boarding of customers. Another reason could be the increased popularity of UPI-based wallets, opined the industry experts.  

    Credit card and debit card transactions also declined with their volume going down by around 4% to 1,362.14 million in November from 1,424.97 million in October. On the other hand, the value of the transactions decreased by 5% from Rs.4.04 trillion in October to Rs.3.84 trillion in November.  

    RTGS payments have also seen a drop by around 7.6% to 10.97 million in November from 11.86 million in October.
