What is a Credit Card?
Generally, a credit card is a payment method in the form of a card which is used as an alternative to cash and issued by a bank so the customers can make transactions easily. As for how a credit card works, the bank “lends” the customers some money instead of deducting any from the customers’ bank accounts, unlike a debit card. In Indonesia, the state-owned Bank Indonesia (BI) is responsible for managing the credit card operations. Today, there are numerous financial service companies serving as credit card providers globally, including in Indonesia, namely VISA, MasterCard, JBC, American Express, and more.
In this digital era, an easy payment method must be a need that you desire, especially if you are having an urgent situation. A credit card is one solution you can have. Check out the reasons below on why a credit card is necessary for the first-time owners.
