Logistically, what are some things I should be aware of when ordering from an online pharmacy (for delivery into the U.S.)?

This will be my first time ordering from an online pharmacy. What are some things of which I should be aware? I'm thinking about the following:
1) Should I use a prepaid Visa card? Is my own credit card OK? Something else? I realize that this question will depend highly on through whom I order, so for the purposes of this question, let's assume either (a) I'm ordering from a company that has received several recommendations on AskMe, and therefore is probably reasonably reputable; or (b) that "what's a trustworthy online pharmacy" is an alternative reading of this question. If a prepaid Visa is recommended, will any old prepaid that I get at a drugstore work?
2) Do I just give them my home address for shipping?
3) How long will it take to arrive? See the caveat on #1 above regarding the extent to which the answer to this question will differ depending on who I use.

Thanks in advance!
