Well, it depends on the account type you have with your bank, as well as the card type. If it's Visa Electron debit card, yes, you can use it online, but only if the vendor supports that type of payment and transactions, still however, you need to supply your PIN, otherwise it's a no-go.

I have one and that assertion is indeed incorrect. I've never had to use the PIN code when doing online transactions.
