1.After you've made a payment your money doesn't leave your card account immediately, it has a waiting payment until the bill is settled by the issuer of your credit card, Mastercard or Visa. Once your payments are processed you can choose to repay the full amount of your purchases in one go each month when your bank settlement day comes, or you can spread the amount over several months. Some of the Belgian backs don't allow the payment in installments.
2.You can withdraw money and make payments all over the world. Most banks block the use of credit cards in the United States, so before heading there make sure you go to your bank and ask them to activate the card for the United States. The process is quite fast, and they usually unblock your card only for the duration of your visit, so you'll need to do the whole process every time you plan to visit the United States Online payments to US merchants are still allowed without needing any activation from the bank.
