Greenlight Debit Card for High Schoolers Goes Mobile & Global

The world’s first debit card for kids with patent-pending technology enabling parents to pick the exact stores where their children can spend, has upgraded to mobile and expanded acceptance globally. 

The Greenlight smart debit card for kids now works internationally, and also integrates with Apple Pay. Effective immediately, Greenlight’s smart debit card for kids can be used internationally in over 120+ countries.

Greenlight began with a focus on the U.S. market and its 10,000+ customers are on track to complete over 1,000,000 transactions this year. Kids traveling abroad for vacation or to study, can use their Greenlight debit cards instead of carrying cash.

In addition to its expanded international capabilities, Greenlight’s smart debit card for kids now integrates with Apple Pay. As a result, kids don’t need to have the physical Greenlight card in order to make a purchase – they just need their iPhones. With Apple Pay integration, Greenlight users have peace of mind that their payments by iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac are safe and private.

The Greenlight card comes with the child’s name (and PIN) built in. And it can be instantly shut off–from either the parent’s phone or the child’s phone – the minute it can’t be found.

Greenlight Financial Technology creates safe, healthy and family-friendly financial services. The Greenlight card is issued by Community Federal Savings Bank, member FDIC, pursuant to license by MasterCard.
