You can certainly pay for online purchases using a credit card. Whether you can use a store credit card depends on the specific policy of the card issuer, but if that card is accepted at other places besides that particular retailer, you can use it online anywhere that accepts a credit card as a form of payment. Many retail credit cards that can only be used at the store with their name on it can be used online, at that retailer’s web site. Check the terms and conditions of the card you’re planning to apply for to make sure it will work where you want it to. Also, when you are shopping online, be sure to use a card with a zero liability fraud policy. Just in case your card information gets hacked, you’ll be safe from having to pay the charges or having your credit ruined. Always use a secure Wi-Fi connection when sending your payment information online, no matter what card you’re using or what site you’re visiting.
