Yes, Paul, it is not a good idea to use a debit card online. Debit cards withdraw funds directly from your bank account. Credit cards are a much better choice for online purchases as they offer more protection if your credit card number is compromised. The debit card numbers are just as vulnerable to being captured by fraudsters as credit card numbers but, if you only use a credit card, you are not taking the chance of giving someone access to your bank account! I hope this helps.

Furthermore credit cards usually come with zero liability.
