Virtual Piggy, Inc. (OTCQB:VPIG), provider of innovative safe youth payments technology, Oink, today announced users will soon have additional in-store payment capabilities with transactions enabled via the Discover® Network.

With more than 2 billion teens spending $800 Billion globally, Oink has been providing a family wallet solution to shop safely and securely and can be used as a financial management tool.

"Discover and Oink share common goals centered around financial transparency and youth financial literacy," said Dr. Jo Webber, CEO & Founder of Oink. "This shared vision, coupled with the wide acceptance of the Discover network, makes this arrangement perfect for Discover and Oink."

This new functionality will initially go live in the U.S., and then will expand to Europe and Asia later this year.
