Mar 07th 2013 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on Virtual Piggy entitled "Online Shopping For Under-18s". In summary, the report says:
Virtual Piggy (VPIG) is an emerging player in the online payments and security industry. The security and compliance features of the Virtual Piggy service differentiate it from competitors, enabling merchants to safely cater to the under-18 market. Demand from children to shop online combined with merchants’ desire to serve this market in a secure and compliant manner should drive the adoption of VPIG’s solution, and we believe that VPIG could be of strategic interest to large online retailers and social networks. Having signed up a critical mass of merchants, VPIG’s focus is now on driving end-user adoption of the service.
