A deposit is a financial product in which a bank undertakes to pay its customers an interest rate in exchange for leaving their money in the bank for a certain period of time. Hence, bank deposits are also called fixed-term deposits.

With a bank deposit, savers agree not to withdraw their money for a certain period of time in exchange for receiving interest from the bank. It is like a loan to the bank.
