how do i use a credit card

I walk into a store (tell me step by step now to use a credit card to buy something) (example with cash: Give person the exact amount you owe, or over that amount, they will take the cash and give you change if it was over the amount you owe, take the change, DONE) When using a Credit Card do you just need to. show more I walk into a store (tell me step by step now to use a credit card to buy something)

When using a Credit Card do you just need to swipe? Or also enter a pin code? (In Canada)

When using a Pre-Paid Credit Card (Visa Gift card) do you just need to swipe? Or also enter a pin code? (In Canada)

My situation:

Im 16, Im booking a room in a hotel online and paying with credit card (no problem)

Once I show up at the hotel they will let me go to my room without paying (I paid online already) but they will check the same

card I used to book and pay for the room online to make sure it's real, How will that work? Do i read them my pre-paid credit card number and ask, "is that what you have on your screen for the person who booked the room?" do I swipe it and then they say everything is fine? Or do I have to. GULP. swipe my card and then they ask me to enter my pin! (Faint!) (When I got my visa gift card from the bank I did not get a pin, or password, I was just given a card, when I went shopping online all I needed was my number, name, and 3 digit code on my card, no pin! is that 3 digit number my pin? Do I even need a pin to use a credit card. or do I just swipe?)

I'm 16, and yes I can buy a pre paid credit card from my bank, I can also book a room online and show up at the hotel and check in alone (no parents needed, I even called the hotel and they said I can)

Yeah, but do I need a pin? and if I do how do I get one with my pre paid visa card.
