When you use a credit card, you borrow money from the issuer, who then pays the merchant. At the end of the month, the issuer sends you a statement listing your charges, and you repay the money you borrowed plus any interest. If you pay off the entire amount each month by the due date, you pay no interest.

yehe k card holder aur dukandar men se kon bank ko zayada pay ker raha hai.. ya dono zayada pay ker rhy hain bank ko... is ka simple and yeh hai k CARDholder zayada pay ker raha hai... dukan wala nahi...bus



In my opinion, because the customer is using the money of credit card which is actually the bank money. It's on the shoulders of customers to pay the extra price or money the base of shopping conducted by the use of credit card. The merchant is not liable for paying extra money to bank because it's just provide the facility of purchasing of something. It on the customers to pay the extra money due to the use of credit card interest is imposed on the outstanding amount of credit card limit which is 3% on daily basis and 36% to 40% per monthly on the outstanding balance or balance used by the customer. Merchants have no issue with the extra amount

MGT411 Money & Banking-1ST GDB Idea Solution

Note: Dont copy paste the solution


The Case:

Suppose you go to the market and purchase some goods using your credit card issued by your bank. Definitely the bank is providing you this facility in return for some profit. Keeping in view the core principles of money and banking, please explain, who is paying the extra money to the bank for providing this facility: you, merchant or both, and why? Support your answer with logical reasons.


Note: Dont copy paste the solution


When you do an offline transaction and simply sign a charge slip, the retailer has to pay a small percentage of your total purchase – perhaps 2%. This fee goes to the bank that issued your debit (or credit) card as an interchange fee.

What about online transactions? Retailers can get those done for a lot less. They might only pay 10 cents or so per transaction.

As you might imagine, 2% of every purchase adds up to a lot of money. The banks andcredit card companies would love for you to choose credit because they get 2% of every dollar you spend. Retailers, on the other hand, beg to differ. They’d prefer that you choose debit so that they don’t have to pay a hefty interchange fee.

In order to maximize revenue, banks give you an incentive to choose credit (or a penalty for choosing debit, depending on how you look at it). They may charge you a fee for online transactions – usually in the ballpark of one to two dollars. Once you discover these fees, you’re more likely to choose credit next time. In addition, they may offer rewards (such as airline miles or entry into a sweepstakes) each time you choose credit.

Of course, somebody has to pay the 2% interchange fee. Retailers don’t pass it on to you as a transaction cost. However, it has to come from somewhere – they have to build it into the price of the products and services you buy.



When a merchant gives a credit card slip to the credit card company or bank for processing, a percentage of each purchase—usually 1.5% to 5% of the purchase amount—is deducted. This "merchant discount fee" helps pay for the bank's services and for the credit card system. By charging extra for credit card use, the merchant passes the discount fee on to customers.

Tariq Bhai you are genius. According to my knowledge the bank is providing a fascility to its customers in the form of credit cards.  Credit cards are very safe mode of payment. The cardholder will give the extra payment in the form of interest of every transaction because the most benefit is going to the cardholder. The shopkeeper or retailer is not responsible for the transaction through credit cards because they needs only the payment of his goods. It is on the will of customers that either they pay in the form of cash or through credit cards. Also when a customer pays the payment of credit card late then the due date then he pays extra amount with the real payment.
