Credit Card Definition

By

Definition:

A plastic card used to make a purchase on credit. The issuer of the card will later collect payment for the purchase. If payment is made after the grace period, interest will be charged on the account.

A credit card is different from a debit card; money is not tied to or immediately removed from a bank account.
