    I don't think this had anything to do with the phone or that site.

    Buying on line is perfectly safe so long as you see the https at the start of the browser. That means you are on a direct hook up with the computer on the other line and nobody can hack into that connection.

    a home computer is much safer, imo
    This is simply not true. SSL is being forced from the site you hit when you do a purchase, not the browser. The Android browser fully supports SSL in this regard. You can make purchases just as you would from a PC and be no less safe. In fact, if you think about malware in the wild right now you're MORE likely to be infected with a rootkit or something of that nature on your PC than your phone.

    Ultimately your CC information being stolen comes down to basic things like someone not securing the actual server where they transaction takes place or you not knowing you've got malware on your home PC and it's got a nice keylogger or something else packaging up data and shipping it off to Nigeria every day.
