Virtual Piggy, the US-based technology platform provider, has added subscriptions to their financial payment system for children.

As a result, teenagers and tweens will be able to purchase subscriptions within games and other online digital media services by using their Virtual Piggy accounts.

Fanlala, a social entertainment and lifestyle platform for tweens and teens, is set to become the first company to integrate the Virtual Piggy subscription payment model. Fanlala’s channel reaches more than 34 million digital cable subscribers and provides a range of teen/tween focused digital content including music streaming and broadcasting new and original series and specials. Fanlala users will be able to sign up for music, game and other digital media subscription purchases using their Virtual Piggy accounts.

As with all Virtual Piggy payments, parents will be able to set limits and time periods for subscription fees and will also be notified each time a monthly payment is made towards a subscription. VirtualPiggy enables online businesses to function in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and similar international children’s privacy laws.
