1. Structural features of the card

Since its inception, the structure of the card has undergone significant changes to increase safety and convenience for customers. Today, with the achievements of microelectronics technology, some cards are attached with an electronic chip to increase the ability to remember information and the security of the card. Most cards today are made of hard plastic (plastic), measuring 84mm x 54mm x 0.76mm, with rounded corners on two sides:

  The front of the card includes:

 Card issuer's name, logo and badge.

 Card number: is a unique number for each cardholder. This number is embossed on the card and will be reprinted on the invoice when the cardholder makes a purchase. Depending on the type of card, the number of digits is different and the group structure is also different.

 Validity date of the card: is the period during which the card is circulated.

 Full name of the cardholder.

 Magnetic Stripe (Magnetic Stripe):

Manufactured based on magnetic technology with 1 magnetic tape containing 2 information slots on the back of the card. This card has been in common use for the past 20 years. However it has

Some disadvantages are as follows:

  The possibility of being exploited is high because the information written in the card is not self-encrypted, people can read the card easily with a reader attached to a computer.

  The card has fixed information, the information area is narrow, and the security code techniques are not applied. Therefore, in recent years, money has been taken advantage of

 Smart card (electronic card with microprocessor chip):

As the latest generation of payment cards, smart cards are based on microprocessor technology, embedded in an electronic "chip" that is structured like a perfect computer. Smart cards are safer and more efficient than magnetic tape cards because the "chip" can hold 80 times more information than a magnetic stripe.

  Classification according to the payment nature of the card:

 Credit card:

Is a cashless payment instrument that allows users the ability to spend first, pay later. The time from when the card is used to pay for goods and services to the time the cardholder pays the bank depends on the type of credit card of different organizations. If the cardholder pays the entire outstanding balance by the due date, this period becomes a grace period and the cardholder is completely interest-free on the outstanding balance at the end of the period. However, if at the end of this time period, the entire outstanding balance at the end of the period has not been paid to the bank, the cardholder will bear late fees and interest. When the entire amount is refunded to the bank, the cardholder's credit limit is restored to its original state. This is the "revolving" nature of credit cards.

Financial institutions such as banks or financial companies issue credit cards to customers based on the reputation and ability to guarantee payment of each customer. The ability to ensure payment is determined based on the synthesis of many different information such as: income, spending situation, available relationships with financial institutions, social status ... of customers.

When using a card, instead of cash, the cardholder presents his/her credit card at the points of supply of goods and services that accept cards (referred to as card acceptors) for payment.

 Debit card:

Like a credit card, a debit card is also a means of cashless payment. Any customer who has an account opened at a bank has a debit card, or in case there is no account, the customer wants to issue a debit card, the debit card itself will be attached to an account. customer account. Debit cards allow customers to access their account balances via an online connection system to pay for goods.

 Cash Card (Cash Card):

is a form of debit card but has only one function, which is to withdraw cash at automatic teller machines (ATMs) or at banks. With a special function only for withdrawal, the withdrawal amount each time will be gradually deducted from the deposit amount in the account.

  Sort by territory

 Domestic card: A card issued by a financial institution or a domestic bank, which can only be used in the country.

 International card: A card used not only in the country where it was issued but also internationally. To be able to issue this card, the issuing bank must be a member of an international card organization.
