Payment cards allow the card holders to make payments by electronic fund transfer. These cards are classified into credit cards and debit cards. The debit cards are cards in which the card holder directly transfers money from their bank account to make payment for the purchase. Credit cards are the cards issued by the banks, allowing the holder to purchase goods and services on credit. The credit cards are further classified into private label cards and other credit cards.
Private label credit cards or store cards or proprietary cards are branded for a specific retailer or a manufacturer. The retailer can manage the cards in house or can be managed or issued by a third party processor, who in turn collects the payments from the card holders. Terms and conditions for private label cards are made by the contract between the retailer and the third party processor. Retailers prefer to have their own cards, thus enabling the consumers to shop at their stores. Private label cards are used in retail outlets, mostly to attract the consumers and giving them another reason to shop at particular stores.
