Oink is the only COPPA compliant payment technology designed to allow retailers and game publishers to reach under 21 consumers in a safe, legal and effective manner. The technology promotes financial management while empowering youth under 21 to make purchasing, saving and other money management decisions for themselves, within the boundaries setup by parents.
“Young customers are a big part of our business and being able to accept payments from them in a safe environment is a great new feature for our ecommerce,” said Scott Daley, VP of Marketing of Body Glove International. “We’re really looking forward to the new revenue opportunities Oink will open up for us and the COPPA compliance it provides.”
“Action sports are a huge category for the youth market,” said Dr. Jo Webber, CEO & Founder at Oink. “Adding a strong innovator in Body Glove gives us another excellent offering to our members, just in time for the holiday shopping season!”
