Minimum payment

When you apply for any type of revolving charge account you agree to pay a minimum payment each month.  Your creditor will send you a statement each month reflecting any new charges, credits, payments, and balances.  If you carry a balance on your card, there will be a minimum amount due each month, which will be on this statement. Each credit card issuer calculates this amount independently, but it is usually between 2-3% of your balance.
