Balance
Your current balance on your credit card.

Interest rates
The average annual percentage rate you pay. This interest rate is calculated for each of the categories of debt you have including credit cards, Auto Loans and other installment loans. For credit cards the rate you enter is used to calculate the interest on all future credit card payments. The length of time to pay off this credit card may be much greater than calculated if you enter a low promotional interest rate that is only good for a short period of time.

Payment %
This is the percent of your outstanding balance that will be used to calculate your minimum payment for the month. Your monthly payment is calculated as the percent of your current outstanding balance you entered, but will never be less than 15. Your monthly payment will decrease as your balance is paid down. This can greatly increase the length of time it takes to pay off your credit cards.

Payment Amount
This is your initial monthly payment. For credit cards, this is calculated as your minimum payment. Your monthly payment is calculated as the percent of your current outstanding balance you entered. Your monthly payment will decrease as your balance is paid down. This can greatly increase the length of time it takes to pay off your credit cards.
