Purchasing with a Debit Card can be considered more secure. If you use the PIN function, it can be very secure. Most establishments dont ask for proper identification when buying with credit. Keep in mind that MOST debit cards also contain a credit function. Most credit cards and debit cards are protected by fraud from the financial institution that issues the card. In this day and age, the money can be re-deposited into your account.

What is use of credit card and debit card?

Both debit card and credit card can be used to pay for purchasing goods or services. However, when you use a debit card, the amount is directly deducted from your bank or checking account. On the other hand, when you use a credit card, the issuing bank or institution pays for your purchasing in full and you will pay the credit card issuer either in full or installments with certain fees or interests. As per experts from Credit Nation, with a Credit Card, you can delay payment of the bill by up to 50 days. Also, most card issuers give you a discount on the next year's annual fees if you make purchases over a certain specified amount on your card.
