    Default on credit.

    Does "on credit" include "by credit card" as well in addition to the primary meaning of "on the condition of paying later"? Or do you have to say "buy somthing by credit card" separately?

    ex)My father doesn't like buying things on credit.

    If you buy something with a credit card, you are buying it on credit.

    www.investorwords.com:

    When a consumer purchases something using a credit card, they are buying on credit (receiving the item at that time, and paying back the credit card company month by month). Any time when an individual finances something with a loan (such as an automobile or a house), they are using credit in that situation as well.
