Gimi Master is a paid subscription that upgrades the Gimi app for children who are ready to manage their own money. It comes with a prepaid Mastercard for spending and an account for saving.
The Gimi Card is a prepaid Mastercard issued by Prepaid Financial Services Limited, pursuant to a license from Mastercard International Incorporated. Prepaid Financial Services Limited is regulated and authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority.
The Gimi Card is connected to the Gimi app. It allows children to spend their own money and teaches them financial literacy. The card works online, but supporters have the option to block online shopping. Supporters also get full insight into spending behaviour, and notifications about card activity.
The card can be used online, and in all stores. The card does not work in ATMs, and at some merchants that we blocked, as they are not appropriate to children.
Supporters top-up the card by adding their own card to the Gimi app. Go to: Settings -> Payment method and add a card!
Go to: Card -> Top-up card and enter the amount you want to transfer!
Most electric scooter apps don't accept prepaid cards like the Gimi Card. Start by checking their policy regarding age limits and accepted cards. If they do accept prepaid cards, contact us!
