A Debit Card is a plastic payment card that can be used instead of cash when making purchases.
The money is immediately transferred directly from the cardholder’s bank account to pay for the transaction. 
The key difference between a Credit Card and a Debit Card is that when you use a Credit Card, you are spending the bank’s money.  When you use a Debit Card, you are spending your money.
