A credit card receivable is money owed to a bank or issuer on the outstanding balance in a credit card account. Because the borrower is contractually obligated to pay the balance, the creditor expects this amount to be repaid. If a borrower does not repay the balance, it is often charged off as a loss. Since credit card usage is so widespread, and account balances can soar quite high, credit card receivables form the backbone of many financial services functions, such as asset-backed securities, debt collection, and debt buying.
