Payment Deferral feature on ADCB Credit Card allows cardholders to defer their credit card payment by a fixed period. During that period, customer is not required to pay minimum amount due and is not levied late payment fee.
An example of how Payment Deferral works is as follows: -If the Statement of Account is created on 5th of March and Payment due date is after 25 days, the Credit Cardholder is not required to make the payment on or before 30th of March. The Payment due date will defer to 30th of April (for one month Payment Deferral) and cardholder is required to pay before 30th of April. Late payment charges will not be levied for 5th of March billing statement, however finance charges will continue to be billed during the payment deferral.
You can apply for Payment Deferral at any time. However, the request will be processed for the next upcoming billing cycle.
Please refer to this example for ease of understanding.
Example: If your Statement of Account date is created on the 5th of every month and you have applied for Payment Deferral on 4th of the month then you will not be required to make any payment on Payment Due Date for that month. However, if you have applied for Payment Deferral after your Statement of Account date i.e. 6th; then your request will be applicable for the next month and you will have to continue to make payment for current month.
