Virtual Piggy is a payment enabler that allows children to safely make purchases online while keeping parents in control of all aspects of spending. The technology is COPPA compliant, PCI DSS Level 1 compliant and TRUSTe certified.
Virtual Piggy is notable for being the first, and currently the only service that enables transactions for Under 13 users that are COPPA compliant. This means the service is the only way for someone 12 or younger to make an online purchase without violating these laws regulated by the FTC, which heavily restrict which personal information a company is permitted to collect from a child. Because Virtual Piggy’s checkout process only requires the child to provide a username and password to checkout, these issues are avoided, keeping the process safe.
The notability of this technology was recognized by Frost & Sullivan, who gave Virtual Piggy their 2012 Entrepreneurial Company of the Year award in Digital Media. Their report details the innovative nature of the service, and the impact they anticipate it will have on eCommerce.
