Credit card issuers set a billing cycle during which all your transactions for that period are reflected in the credit card statement. The credit card billing cycle may vary from 27-31 days, depending on the card type and the issuer.
Billing cycle and other details
Every month, the credit card holder gets a billing statement from the card-issuing bank based on the billing cycle. This billing cycle may begin on the 1st of a month and continue until the 30th or 31st of a month. In some cases, it may start from the 10th of each month and go on until the 10th of next month. All the transactions done using your credit card during this period gets added to your bill on the bill generation date. To make the payment of this amount, you usually have between 20-25 days after the bill is generated.
The bill generation date is the date on which your credit card statement is generated every month. Generally, it is the last day of the billing cycle of each month.
In case you make payments for some of the transactions during the period, it gets adjusted in the final bill so that you pay only the outstanding amount. Any transaction made after the billing cycle gets reflected in next month's credit card statement.
