Virtual Piggy, the innovator in safe-online youth purchasing now has a mobile iOS application, which allows parents and kids to manage their Virtual Piggy accounts on their Apple phones and tablets.
Virtual Piggy offers a secure, COPPA compliant, e-commerce solution to enable kids under 18 to make online purchases.
Kids between the ages of 8 and 18 have more than $50 billion in annual spending power and yet when it comes to online purchases they either have no ability to spend or they have their parentâ€™s credit card. Virtual Piggy provides technology that gives kids the ability to shop online in a controlled environment that parents can feel comfortable about.
â€œKids are very comfortable with e-commerce and over a third of kids 8-11 now have their own mobile device and that number is rising,â€ said Virtual Piggy Executive, Catherine Williams. â€œThe Virtual Piggy app brings our secure online payment method to the platforms where kids spend the majority of their time.â€
The introduction of the Virtual Piggy mobile application is an integral part of the companyâ€™s plans to bring their family approved e-commerce solution to the global U18 market, whether they are shopping online using mobile devices or PCâ€™s, or in-store with the integration of NFC technology. The company’s London office opens 4th February 2012.
