Credit Card PIN 

Your credit card PIN is typically a 4 to 6 digit secret number used to make transactions on your credit card. It ensures the safety and security of your funds. When you use the card for transactions, you need to enter the PIN. The payment system then matches it to the card number and user ID. If it is an exact match, the transaction is processed, or else it fails.

How to Activate a Credit Card

As soon as you receive your credit card, the first thing you must do is activate it by setting a PIN for it. Only after setting your PIN can you begin using your card. New technological innovations in the form of green PIN and self-PIN allow you to easily generate a PIN instantly and activate your credit card as soon as it is delivered. In case you face any challenges with the activation process, you can contact credit card customer care and resolve the issue.
