Gimi Master is a paid subscription that upgrades the Gimi app for children who are ready to handle their own money. Gimi Master includes a prepaid Mastercard that children use to spend real money and a seperate account for the money they want to save.
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 parents have the option to block online shopping. Supporters also get full insight into spending behaviour, and notifications about card activity.
Parents decide when their children are ready for a card, there is no universal age. But we recommend it from ages 10+. Still not sure? We have a card test for children, find it in your app under Settings or on our website.
The Gimi Card can be used online and in stores. The card does not work in ATMs or at blocked merchants that are not appropriate for children.
Supporters top-up the card by adding their own card to the Gimi app. Go to: Settings -> Payment method and add a card!
Only children can transfer money between the card and their Gimi account.
Gimi does not support refunds for money that's been transferred to the Gimi Card or the account.
