How to treat credit card transactions (to pay expenses) in cash based accounting

When a business using cash based accounting pays an expense with a credit card, is that considered a cash transaction, or a credit transaction? Does that transaction hit the books with the CC is swiped, or when the bill is payed a month or so later? What's the best way to handle/treat these credit card transactions?
