What Happens if you Fail to Pay Credit Card Bill on Time?

Customers who do not pay their bills on time are frowned upon by credit card firms. They send you reminders by mail and SMS when it’s time to pay. If you miss a payment, you will be charged a penalty as well as interest on the amount you owe. Furthermore, interest-free financing is not available for purchases made the following month. The most significant loss is a tarnished credit history and reduced credit score, both of which reduce your prospects of obtaining credit in the future.
