In ionic bonds, electrons are not shared; instead, they are transferred from the less electronegative atom to the more electronegative atom. In covalent bonds, electrons are shared and the difference in charges is due to one atom being more electronegative than the other-the more electronegative atom will have a negative partial charge and the less electronegative atom will have a positive partial charge.
