Using a credit card online is safe as long as you have followed a few steps

1. Be sure your computer is free of viruses or other malicious items.

2. Be sure your Internet browser is secure.

3. Check for a padlock in the url of the site you are shopping on. If it is not present, do not enter your credit card information.

There is always a risk. If you are not comfortable using online credit card, don't. Better safe then forever sorry. If you must use them, check the sites security link on the bottom of every home page first.

Mostly all online stores use online credit card processing. Some actually offer you to use your credit card through a more secure company called PayPal. I also understand that some online stores are now excepting debit cards of a form of payment.

If you use a credit card, you must always pay off the total amount due each month. You must not exceed your credit limit. Purchase only from reputable and known online companies. Always keep your credit card at safe places. All these are for you not to go bankrupt and to prevent fraud.

It is very risky to use your phone as a virtual credit card, things can be broken, lost, or copied very easily. You can use it as one but I advise it is better to use a real one. If you do not feel safe carrying a credit card than it is very useful to use a virtual credit card.

It should be safe on a secure site, but it is always best to use a credit card. If there are any fraudulent charges you can dispute them and get them reversed. With a debit card you are on your own, and once they have your information they can wipe out your checking account. I had $2500 in fraudulent credit card charges reversed in Jamaica a couple years ago. I would have been in big trouble if they got my debit card info.

iPhone credit card terminals use encrypted data to mask the card information in the same way that online credit card processors do. Since iPhone terminals have become more popular in past years with small or home businesses, Banks and Credit Card Processing Services have worked towards making the encryption even more complicated.

No - you have to either swipe or insert the card. You can, however, use the numbers as a "credit card" for an online purchase.
