Question

What happens when a customer purchases an item with a debit card?

Answer

D

When a customer makes a purchase with a debit card, the funds are automatically transferred from the customer's account to the store's account without any short-term loan or interest being charged. Unlike a credit card transaction, a debit card transaction does not go through an electronic clearinghouse or result in a bill being sent to the customer.
