    Your card account is "debited".

    They make a charge to your account - though there are many other ways of saying it.

    You pay 'with plastic' - but that's the only case I can think of where the physical thing is involved in the process.

    Note that there are cards that you 'load'. In that case the physical thing is involved. At some outlets you can 'put money onto your card' - although more formally, again, that would be referred to as 'making a credit to your account'.
