Here’s an overview:
Net Banking of that bank:
This is by far the easiest method to pay your credit card bills. You just need to login to your Net Banking and pay the credit card bill. One of the good things I like about this method is that your Credit Card bill payment will be settled instantly and the money is deducted directly from your bank account. You don’t even need to separately add money in any e-wallet. On the downside, if you pay your CC bills using Net Banking then you will get nothing in terms of rewards or cashback. Here’s how to do that-
1. First of all Login to your Net banking with your credentials.
2. Now go to Credit Card Section and select your credit card.
3. Here you can see details like Current Outstanding, Credit limit, etc. To pay the Credit card bill simply click on the Pay Bill button.
4. After that select the Current Outstanding Amount and Click on the Next button.
5. Now click on the confirm button and your Credit Card bill be paid successfully.
Note: Make sure to have enough balance in your bank account to pay the Credit Card bill.
Have you ever heard about getting rewarded for paying the credit card bills every time? Well, you heard it right! Cred is one of the best ways to pay your credit card bills and for each payment, you get points and rewards. You can add multiple credit cards in one Cred app. However, you need to remember that all your Credit Card must be registered with the same mobile number which you’re using in the Cred app.
One of the interesting things I like about Cred is that it will notify you about your repayments so that you will forget to pay your credit card bills on time. However sometimes it notifies you for the same even when you pay the Credit card already, but it’s still better than paying a late payment fee. Not only this Cred also has a unique refer and earn program where you will get 10 Cred gems that you can redeem as Flipkart or Amazon gift voucher.
Mobikwik is another great app for paying Credit Card bills. For each payment, Mobikwik will reward you with Supercash which is almost useless but still better than nothing. Make sure to check offers before paying your Credit card bills. The offers are changed from time to time but currently, it’s offering Flat Rs 100 cashback on the first bill payment ever on Mobikwik. Here’s how to do that-
1. First of all Download the Mobikwik app and login/signup into it.
2. Now on the homepage click on the Credit Card Bill icon as seen in the below screenshot.
3. After that enter your Credit Card Number and the amount which you want to pay.
4. You can also click on the Offer section to know the current offers on paying your Credit Card bills.
5. Finally click on the Pay Bill option and select your payment option.
6. After a successful transaction Mobikwik will take up to 3 working days to settle your Credit Card Payment.
Note: Paying through wallet balance loaded via any payments will attract a convenience charge of 2.95% + GST.
E-commerce giant Amazon is also spreading its legs in the online bill payment industry.
