How many people on Gaia are even young enough to need a site like this? Or are Gaians now a LOT younger than I expected?
You can only legally have your own Paypal if you are 18+. And yes, there's actually a lot of Gaians who are <18 years of age. 3nodding
I see this as a way for parents to allow their kids to learn how to be responsible with their money and for there to be parental controls, limits to spending, etc. Like if they have an allowance, for example. The parent can allow their child to use some of it for Gaia if that's what they choose to do with it. My mom did this for me when I was a teenager but I used her credit card. She'd let me spend $5 of my allowance on Gaia. /snort
As much as I'd love to sign up and get the item, I'll stick with Paypal. I just didn't feel comfortable when I saw "To complete login with Virtual Piggy, agree to: PayPal sharing the following information:" sweatdrop
Sure, Paypal would take my side but I just don't find it necessary. Buying it from the MP it is!
