When purchasing items from stores, it is common to encounter several ways to pay: credit cards, debit cards, installment plans and more.
Credit card or debit card – Credit cards are easy to use when making purchases as you can purchase items without having the cash on hand; some stores offer financing over time so that even if you’re in need of money they may set up shorter payment plans for your convenience. This is a great option if it’s something you have been looking into with interest but not sure about yet. Some credit cards also feature discounts or deals which could give back more than what was spent during purchase. A key thing to consider before going this route is whether you want to pay an annual fee (many do) and how much starting balance will be needed for the store policy (some require $500+).
Check – This is great for one-time purchases if you don’t feel like using a credit card or debit card; checks are typically processed the same day, so there’s not much to worry about. It can be helpful in getting cash back from your purchase and it also leaves less of an impact on your finances when making transactions as opposed to paying with a debit card or credit card because check payments go through as funds coming out of your account rather than being withdrawn from a line of credit. Some people may find this method inconvenient because they have to write down their bank information at checkout (although some stores allow customers to print off these slips).
Cash – When paying with cash, items will need to be purchased immediately which limits how much you can buy at one time. Some people may find it inconvenient to carry a lot of cash on them, and the purchase limit will need to be determined by how much money is in their wallet or purse.
Debit Card – When using a debit card, items are typically processed immediately which means that transactions cannot take place until there’s enough funds available for use. If someone has limited access to credit cards then this might be an option they have when making purchases because all costs are paid upfront with the amount of money already set aside from bank accounts (unless overdraft protection was activated).
Credit Card- Credit cards allow consumers more flexibility and choice than other methods because payments don’t need to be made right away as long as there’s enough available credit.
Cash- Using cash for purchases is a good option if there are no other options, but this may not be the best choice because it’s hard to keep track of how much money has been spent on things. A lot of people also like using debit cards as an alternative way to pay when they don’t have any cash on them and can still make payments at retail stores or restaurants with limited access to banks and ATMs.
PayPal- If someone doesn’t want their transactions being seen then PayPal might be worth looking into as well that could allow consumers some degree of privacy while shopping online through eBay or websites like Etsy where buyers have more freedom about what they’ll purchase without restrictions from sellers **(add more sentences to highlight other benefits of PayPal, like the speed and convenience it offers).
Credit cards- Consumers can also look into credit card options if they want to make purchases that are larger than what their bank account allows. This is a great option because there’s no limit on how much someone can charge __ as long as he or she has money in his or her savings account. The downside with this choice though is that consumers may end up paying interest **(add more sentences about why people might not want to use credit cards).
Cash- Lastly, cash could be an option for some people who don’t have any one of these alternatives but still need something quickly from stores or restaurants during times when ATMs aren’t working.
*consumer- person who buys goods and services for personal or family use, rather than business purposes; someone to whom money is lent by banks or other credit providers **interest- the amount of money added as a charge on an account that has been borrowed from a bank **ATM- machine that allows people to withdraw cash from their bank accounts so they can purchase items in stores or restaurants during times when those places are closed **those places aren’t open (add more sentences about why some people might not want to use cash)
The benefits of PayPal include its speed and convenience (users don’t have to carry around large amounts of cash). Credit cards could also be used if consumers need something larger than what’s allowed on their credit card limit. However, there are some downsides to using PayPal: it can be expensive if you use your credit or debit cards for every purchase (credit cards charge interest and fees), and not all merchants accept PayPal as a form of payment. The benefits of cash include its security- people don’t need to worry about their purchases being hacked by someone else and stolen from them online; the convenience of having small denominations that make change easier when in stores–people also don’t have to carry around large amounts of cash with them at any given time. However, carrying around money is inconvenient because bills often get lost easily or taken without consent, since they’re so easy to steal from wallets and purses. A person
