Did you know that Gold and Platinum cheque cards can be used to make payments just like credit cards? This allows buyers to make use of available funds as opposed to buying on credit with a credit card.
In 2014 an American survey showed that 43% of buyers preferred using debit cards over 35% of buyers who preferred using credit cards. And when it came to online shopping 48% preferred credit cards over 30% using debit cards. Either way you put it, credit and debit cards dominate the market with between 70-80% of all purchases.
