Santa Claus comes around just once a year. In the meantime, there are Credit Cards.
  • Credit Card Bill Payment Through CRED

    CRED is a free credit card bill payment mobile application. Available for download on iOS and Android platforms, it simplifies the bill payment process and rewards users for paying their card bills on time.

    Cred accepts MasterCard, Visa, RuPay, American Express as well as Diners Club credit cards issued by most major banks.

    How CRED Works

    CRED can be accessed only if you have a credit score (CIBIL) of 750 and above. CRED requests access and verifies your current credit score from credit bureaus like Experian, Crif and CIBIL. If you qualify, the app will integrate existing cards to your CRED account. A detailed registration guide is mentioned below:

    • Install the app from your Android/iOS mobile phone and sign up with your mobile number.
    • After verifying your number by OTP, the app will check your credit score and notify you if you are eligible for the service.
    • On successful verification, the app will add all credit cards linked to your mobile number. You can add up to 10 credit cards at a time, with the option to add more if required.
    • You have to verify your card details by adding in the masked numbers.
    • CRED will instantly verify your card/cards by depositing Re.1 through IMPS/UPI.
    • After verification, you can pay your credit card bills and earn reward points equal to the bill amount paid.
