What restrictions can I put on spending?

Store Level Control

With Greenlight's patent-pending parental controls, you have the ability to restrict which stores your children can make purchases at and how much they can spend.

Looking for more flexibility? Adding money into your child's "Spend Anywhere" Greenlight allows your children to spend money where they see fit. Money that you add to Spend Anywhere can be spent wherever Mastercard is accepted, online and in-store.

In most cases, within your greenlight settings, you can also connect any of your child’s individual greenlights to Spend Anywhere so that these funds can be combined for purchases.

For example, if your child goes to make a purchase for $6 at Target, but their greenlight only has $5 in the account, if this setting is turned ON the additional $1 will come from their Spend Anywhere greenlight so that the purchase is not declined. If this setting is turned OFF, the purchase would be declined.

In-App Approvals

If your child wants to make a purchase at a store you haven't approved and they don't have enough money in their "Spend Anywhere" Greenlight, they can send you a request for additional funds in real-time. You can approve or decline the request and chat with your child as needed.

Freeze a Greenlight Card

Lose a Greenlight Card or want to temporarily disable your child's card? No sweat. Simply turn the card off within the Greenlight App. Parents can turn a card on or off at any time instantly!
