What is the difference between debit card & credit card?

What is the difference between debit card & credit card?

Both Debit card and credit card and other cards like smart card are plastic money. Plastic money refers to plastic cards which play the role of medium of payment. In credit cards the customer (credit card holder) can avail the facility of buying goods and services at a Point of Sale (POS) from merchant establishments (provided such arrangements exist) without making a prior payment. This credit facility is provided by the issuer bank to the customer for a specific period.
However, in the case of debit cards, the customer (debit card holder) can buy goods and services by automatically debiting the payments to card holder’s banks account.

In case of a credit card, the card holder uses credit line by making drawings within a specified or sanctioned limit and makes payment on receiving the bill along with the applicable charges and interests.
In case of debit cards, the card holder uses the balance in his / her own bank account and payment is made immediately on purchases.

    Did intelligence or guns win the war? Max Hastings gathers hundreds of spy stories in this enjoyable search for the answerMax Hastings’s 25th book is a lively, entertaining, but uneven yomp through espionage and code-breaking in the 1940s, which aims to cut through the clouds of mythology and establish just what contribution the cloak-and-dagger boys made to […]
  • List of the Lost by Morrissey review – the publishers should be ashamed of themselves
    The singer’s dreadful debut novel is plotless and written in sixth-form proseIn the interests of fairness, I try to avoid looking at what other people have said about a book I’m reviewing. With List of the Lost, sadly, this was impossible. As soon as it was published last week, the internet erupted with the sound of a thousand contemptuous guffaws. Articles […]
