minimum payment


Definition: The minimum payment is the minimum amount that must be paid to avoid defaulting on the credit card or loan. The creditor can impose a late fee if the payment received is less than the minimum payment or if the minimum payment is received after the due date. If you make minimum payments only on your balance, it will take longer and cost more money to completely repay your balance.
