In the United States giving a store a check for the purchase of products is a direct debit to one's checking account when the store deposits it in their own account and it is sent to your bank.

There most be enough money in one's checking account to cover the check or it will bounce. Normally this means your bank will charge you for failing to keep enough funds in your account. The store owner will be notified and they will most likely mail you about the problem. In such a case, my personal advice is to go back to the store and pay them in cash for the product you purchased.

With a credit card, it's presented to the store and your credit card company will credit the store and charge the store about 5% for providing them the service. The customer will receive in their monthly bill from the credit card, notice of the charge and charge you interest on the money they have "loaned" you. If the credit card company is correct, you simply pay the minimum monthly balance they ask for. My personal advice is to mail the credit card company the amount of money you charged and avoid an interest charge.
