Credit cards as a modern means of payment, provide many conveniences and benefits in the midst of the rapid development of the business world. In addition, to address the use of credit cards based on usury, the Syariah Bank issued a Syariah Credit Card or Financing Card, this product must be based on the National Syariah Council Decision (Fatwa Majelis Ulama Indonesia) No.54 / DSN-MUI / 2006 on Syariah Card.
