What You Need to Know Before Adding a Credit Card

Before you can add a credit card to your FedEx account, you’ll need to have one. You can apply for a card from most major credit card companies, though you may need to have a certain credit score to qualify.

If you don’t have a credit card yet, you can consider getting one for the convenience of using it with FedEx. Before you add a credit card to your account, consider the interest rate associated with your card. The interest rate will be applied to the total amount on the card if you don’t pay it off in full each month. Depending on the amount you spend on shipping, the interest could outweigh the benefits of adding a credit card to your account.

Pros and Cons of Adding a Credit Card to Your Account

Pros

When you add a credit card to your FedEx account, you have the option to set up automatic payments that charge your card. This makes it easy to pay for all of the shipments you’ve sent with FedEx without having to log in to your account and manually pay for each shipment. Automatic payments can be especially helpful for businesses that ship frequently. You can also set up a reserve on your account when you add a credit card to your account. This means that charges will be held against your card and held in an escrow account. When you ship with FedEx, the charges will drop off your account, and the reserve will be put back on your credit card. This is ideal for people who want to ship a large shipment and don’t have the money in their account to do so.

Cons

When you add a credit card to your account, you’ll be charged interest on the amount you owe. You may want to consider this when you’re adding a card to your account, especially if you plan on charging a large amount. You’ll also want to make sure you’re paying your bill on time so you don’t damage your credit score. Adding a credit card to your account also gives you the opportunity to overspend. If you’re not careful, you may end up spending more than you can pay back. You can avoid this by keeping track of your spending and paying off your bills as soon as possible, even if it’s just the minimum payment.

Conclusion

These are some of the ways that you can use a credit card with FedEx. When you add a card to your account, you can set up automatic payments, charge larger shipments to your card, and set up a reserve. You should consider the interest rate associated with your card and whether or not you can pay off your balance before it’s due, though.
