New smartphone apps aim to boost digital shopping for children and parents.
The company behind the app, called Shopify, is trying to change the way parents buy and manage their kids’ shopping.
It launched Shopify Kids, a service that will give parents an app for their kids to use to make purchases online.
You’ll have to use a phone app, but you can have up to 10 children using it, and your kids will have a number of ways to interact with your kids.
Kids can look up products at a store or at a participating online shop and see prices, promotions and coupons.
They can also share pictures of products they want and get personalized recommendations.
In addition to using Shopify’s service, kids will also have access to a number from their parent’s social media accounts.
“Our goal is to get parents on board with the idea that they can make shopping for their children easier and more fun,” said Jason Gorman, the co-founder and CEO of Shopify.
Shopify Kids is currently available in the Apple App Store, Google Play, Amazon App Store and Windows Phone Store.
We have also partnered with Target and Wal-Mart to offer an exclusive, limited-time offer on the App Store that gives kids the opportunity to spend up to $300 on a new Apple iPad Pro.
“Kids will have the option of a new iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S8 or HTC U11 and will have to log into Shopify via the Kids section of the Appstore to use the Kids app.
While there are currently no plans for the App store to allow kids to buy a new device, the company is exploring ways to allow children to purchase new accessories, games and apps through the app.”
We’re hoping to make that experience seamless for parents and children,” Gorman said.
When it comes to technology, the app is also bringing a number to the table.
Shopify is not the first app to let parents buy things with their kids.
The company also offers a service called ShopPass that lets parents buy items from retailers like Target and Walmart.
If parents don’t want to buy stuff, they can also create their own online shop for their kid.
