gohenry card - not only is this handy in case a packed lunch is forgotten, but it may even mean that your children buy all their school supplies themselves!
gohenry's prepaid card and app is jam packed with featured for children and parents to help families learn about managing money together. Parents can set tasks and chores and schedule pocket money payments amongst many other things whilst children can set their own saving goals and check their statement visually.
gohenry makes it easy for parents to check their children's transactions. The gohenry app is able to send you notifications as soon as your child uses the card, whether that is online, in a shop or to get cash out of an ATM.
Decide how much and how often children can spend. You can also toggle online spending, high street shops or ATM on or off. No debt or overdraft is possible, so no expensive mistakes. And blocking the card has never been easier: children can do it themselves quickly. Children can really spend safely and start saving by themselves.
