Credit Card spend attributes

We're introducing two new attributes in the credit card response of Method Data’s API, further enriching our insights into credit card usage patterns and financial behaviors.

Now available for all credit cards:

  • usage_pattern: This attribute categorizes how people use their credit cards. It identifies users as:

    • revolvers (those who carry a balance from month to month)

    • transactors (those who pay off their balance each month)

    • dormant (inactive credit card accounts)

    This insight helps in understanding consumer spending habits and credit utilization

  • interest_bearing_balance: For the revolvers who don't pay off their card every month, this attribute details the amount they are carrying that is accruing interest. It’s a crucial data point for understanding the financial impact of credit card debt on consumers.

These spend attributes are built on top of Method's Data, our unique real-time, credential-less connectivity to financial institutions. As a result, these data points will be continuously updated, providing the most current and accurate insights into credit card usage

For more information and to explore these new attributes, please contact your Method CSM or drop us a note on our shared slack channel to skip the line.
