Credit cards were formulated to ease the entire process of shopping. At the time of its inception, global business and commerce was in a very bad shape, and some dramatic steps were required to uplift the shopping spirit of the common man. However the growing inflation made it difficult if not impossible to lure the man from his home into the shopper’s dens. To solve this acute crisis credit cards were formulated, with the core idea was to increase the shopping fervor among the people. And the plan worked only because of the unique way in which it functions. The cards are actually passes issued by the bank, which enables a customer to shop without ash. You can buy anything, eat anything at the restaurant of your choice, or watch the latest movie at the plex near you, without paying the fees in cash! If you but transact using your card. You definitely have to repay the credited amount, but not instantly, but at a later date, to your bank, at your very convenience. Now the credit cards also did another task, in addition to its primary job; it opened up another way of cash withdrawal, cutting short the amount of time wasted standing in the bank queue to withdraw money. Now using a credit card, a person can withdraw money from an ATM kiosk. From the very moment of its inception, the credit card created a mass craze. Infact it altered the entire public psyche from “I don’t have money right now to shop”, or “we can go shopping another day” to “Let’s go shopping right away” and so on. This change of public mood was enough to increase the volume of commerce globally manifold. Very soon it began a global phenomenon, and the irreversible wheel that was once started, is still carrying on its job.
In the realm of credit cards- formerly there were two champion warriors. The Signature card and the Visa card. The Signature card was as exclusive as the metal it is named after, thus bringing huge benefits and discounts to its owner. And on the other hand the Visa card is like the passport to shop anywhere around the world. It is actually the license to a borderless shopping experience. To uphold the craze of credit cards, the business heads of the leading banks decided to merge the key features of these cards into a single rectangular piece of plastic; presenting the Visa Signature credit card. This unique card not only offered you the added benefits and discounts and cashbacks of the good old Signature card, but the Visa aspect enabled that you can avail to those benefits anywhere around the world- be it Tokyo or Taiwan or Paris. Actually credit cards works so well because of the tie-ups the banks have with a large number of medium and large service providers. They extend from the restaurant chains to the exquisite 5star hotels, from the shopping destinations to the malls and the e-commerce sites. Also other service providers such as travel websites, hotels, movie halls and multiplexes are also under the same roof. Thus if a customer avails to any of these services, and transacts using a card, then the discounts that he will get is other worldly, something which a normal cash transaction cannot match. As it became a global phenomenon, developing countries like India also began to experience the boom. In the growing metropolises such as Mundra, there are all the world class amenities
