The results of random and fixed effect models show that credit card financing is significantly affect the ROA and NIM for all banks. Meanwhile, credit cards significantly affect the ROA for
conventional banks and also affect NIM for Islamic banks. The results implies that credit cards have significant contribution to the bank profitability. Credit card loan/financing is popular among the banking institutions due it nature that offer high
