We’ve all heard the horror stories of parents waking up and finding a massive credit card bill, no thanks to their kids going wild on in-app purchases for video games. Now if you’re a parent who has kids that still don’t really grasp the value of money, you might be interested to learn that Greenlight has something you could be interested in.
For those unfamiliar, Greenlight is a special debit card and service that allows families to monitor and control the money their kids spend, and recently the company has announced a new smart debit card with support for Apple Pay, and also support for use worldwide which means that kids who are traveling will have a better way of managing their finances.
According to the company’s CEO and co-founder Tim Sheehan, “High schoolers often have a chance to visit other countries through their foreign language classes and many families take vacations internationally, so we’re excited to enable our customers to use their Greenlight Cards worldwide. Young people are leading the way in paying for things using their mobile phones, so we’re pleased to enable Apple Pay for Greenlight customers.”
Greenlight is not a free service and for parents who are interested in signing up for it, there will be a free trial, but after which there will be a monthly subscription fee of $4.99. More details can be found on Greenlight’s website.
