Two credit cards

A credit card is a card which allows people to buy items without cash. When they buy something, a sales clerk uses it to charge the money needed to their bank account, so the person will pay later. They are buying it on credit, which is the trust that they will pay it back later.

If a person does not pay within a limit (usually a month) they will have to pay extra money, called interest.
