Kid-Friendly Payment Platform Oink Goes Global
Virtual Piggy is taking its kid-friendly payment platform around the world, as the company has unveiled a new partnership with GlobalCollect.
GlobalCollect is an international payment service provider that processes payments in more than 150 currencies and more than 170 countries. The service has been used by some of the world’s top brands, including Levi’s, Sony BMG and Estee Lauder. Conversely, Virtual Piggy’s Oink platform is a payment technology that allows retailers and game publishers to reach consumers under the age of 21. The platform is compliant with the FTC and other international regulations when it comes to accepting online payments from minors. The partnership expands Oink's reach to more merchants throughout the world.
“Oink is an excellent addition to our growing global payments network around the world as a unique and innovative payment solution,” said Stephen Buechner, CRO at GlobalCollect. “We have many merchants worldwide who aim to reach the complex U21 market who shop across many different channels, and this technology combines the security and simplicity required to effectively do so.”
