Virtual Piggy FAQ


Q: What the heck guys, you come into the Gaia community and can’t be bothered to introduce yourselves?

A: Sorry about that!


Q: Is Virtual Piggy safe to use?

A: Yes! Virtual Piggy has earned a number of online safety certifications and endorsements, so you can feel confident signing up for our service. These include:

- PCI-DSS Level 1 certification. This means your payment information is kept under extremely tight security, the same level as other major online merchants.

- Certified by the TRUSTe® Children’s Privacy Program.

- Privacy Certified, Kids Privacy Certified and Certified for Europe under the Entertainment Software Rating Board.

Q: Are you guys a real company?

A: Yes! We are located in beautiful Hermosa Beach in California. Here’s us enjoying a lunch break playing volleyball, and our Piggy mascot making friends at the beach.

Q: What does Virtual Piggy cost to use?

A: Virtual Piggy is 100% free to use! No fees, no charges.

Q: If I register an account, when will I be charged?

A: Your account is only charged when you make a purchase that matches parental settings.

Q: Do you like cupcakes?

A: We LOVE cupcakes. Our office is right above a cupcake store, which is awesome.

Q: My payment didn’t go through. What went wrong?

A: Right now, Gaia can only accept Virtual Piggy payments that are made through a parent’s PayPal account. If you’re getting this error, adding a PayPal account under the parent’s payment options should solve it.

Q: What if I want to use my parent’s credit card as a payment source?

A: You can use your credit card for the payment by adding it to your PayPal account. To clarify: the parent will need to log into their PayPal account, and add the credit card information there.

Q: I registered as a kid, and the account isn’t working.

A: If you first started registration as a kid, you’ll need your parent to log into their side of Virtual Piggy. They’ll need to click on the gear icon under settings, then fill in their name, mailing address and payment information.

Q: I’m still having problems. Who can I contact?

A: You can reach our customer support team at support@virtualpiggy.com, or by phone at 855-203-1747 (toll free).

Q: I’m not a parent or a teen. Can I still register for Virtual Piggy?

A: Sure! One of the benefits to Virtual Piggy is we make online checkout a much easier process, where you only need to enter a username and password. You’ll also get access to our digital gift cards on shop.virtualpiggy.com.

Q: I’m outside the United States, can I still use Virtual Piggy?

A: Virtual Piggy is designed for international use. If you’re having problems, please contact us at support@virtualpiggy.com and we’ll be happy to help.

Q: Why did you start Virtual Piggy? What’s the point?

A: Think about how often kids and teens want to buy something online, but can’t. It can get annoying to ask parents for the credit card all the time. If you’re a parent, giving your kids the credit card opens you up to all kinds of problems . . . like when a Ferrari shows up at the door. Surprise, Mom!

We came up with Virtual Piggy as a solution that lets kids buy what they want, while keeping parents in control. Everyone walks away happy, and it’s hard to beat a free service.

Q: Can we be friends?

A: Definitely! You can connect with us at facebook.com/virtualpiggy, and twitter.com/followpiggy
