Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I work in a department store, and as part of the job we are obliged to ask customers if they want a store card, which is a credit card, and if they do, to open accounts for them. What is the ruling on credit cards, and is this work permissible?

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
