Last year in economics I had to do 3 minutes presentation about something used worldwide and I chose the credit card.

Here's what i found:
In 1949, a guy name Franck McNamara, head of a credit company called Hamilton Credit Corporation, went to have dinner with a close friend and his attorney to discuss a problem they had with a customer.
At the end of the meal McNamara noticed he had forgotten his wallet. He had to phoned her wife to bring him the wallet, so that he could pay the meal.
Later he came up with the credit card idea. A credit card that could be used in several places.

Before 1949 the credit cards were issued by individual companys, meaning each company had it’s own credit card.

curiosity:1958 was the year of the first "american express" credit card.

Hope this helps! Image
