What is an Online Charge Card?

An online charge card is typically just a credit card that you applied for online. Some people are confused and think this card can only be used for online purchases; however, there is really no difference with an online charge card than a typical charge card with the exception of the application process.

Applying for a Charge Card Online

Filling out an online application for any type of financing is risky. You should make sure you are working on a secure website and only using a personal computer. Identity thieves can capture the information you enter and compromise your other finances, so it is best to proceed cautiously with any online information.

Using an Online Charge Card

An online charge card can be used like any other charge card. You should be sure you are applying for an actual charge card and not just a charge account which would mean you do not get an actual piece of plastic. Having the card is important because you will not be able to use your account information at most vendors without having the card in hand. These charge cards work like any other credit card, applying interest to your purchases and requiring regular monthly payments.
