* A charge card is a card that provides a payment method enabling the cardholder to make purchases which are paid for by the card issuer, to whom the cardholder becomes indebted. The cardholder is obligated to repay the debt to the card issuer in full by the due date, usually on a monthly basis, or be subject to late fees and restrictions on further card use. The difference between the credit and charge card is that in case of charge card, the amount becomes payable immediately on the debit to the account. Interesting Points *No line of credit – must be paid off each month. *Heavy penalties for late payment. *In the past most retail stores offered one. *Profitable for the stores. *Single retailer version limited use.
