Many financing models exist; using a bank card to access credit is one of the models most frequently used at present. Perhaps this is due to the speed of these types of transactions. In any case, in order to find out first-hand how to pay with a credit card, you must first be aware of all the associated information.
Firstly, remember that a credit card must be linked to a bank account. It is imperative that a direct debit be set up to pay for the credit awarded by the bank, as the amount made available on the credit card will be paid for using the balance of the account direct debits are issued from. Similarly, access to a credit card is only possible if the customer who requests the card meets the bank’s criteria. The bank creates a customer profile to ensure that financed credit will be repaid.
In this respect, before finding out how to pay with a credit card, you must take into account that you will only be able to access a card if you meet certain requirements and obligations. This type of financing is not exempt from fees. However, the fees charge will depend on the bank you request the card from.

How to pay using the credit cards.
The physical way to pay using a credit card involves nothing more than using a PIN code to confirm purchases. Some stores and clients may also require the card holder’s signature. Card are equipped with a magnetic strip and a chip. The chip is essential as it is used to access the contactless technology systems that have enabled BBVA to bring new innovations to market.
BBVA’s state-of-the-art credit cards are equipped with this innovative contactless payment system. All you need to do is place your card close to the point of sale terminal in order to confirm a transaction. If the purchase is under €20, you don’t even need to enter your PIN. This technology makes your transactions more secure and makes payments quicker and more convenient as you don’t need cash. You must either enter your PIN or sign a receipt for transactions of more than €20 (irrespective of whether the operation is performed using a chip, magnetic strip of contactless mechanism).
BBVA has also gone a step further and created the BBVA Wallet to make purchasing processes even more convenient. You can use this system to make payments from your Android cell phone and manage the financing of your associated credit cards.
