|Includes: Rego Payment Architectures, Inc. (RPMT)

Virtual Piggy and Payelp Global are teaming up to bring their payment technologies to a broad network of merchants, according to news released yesterday by both companies. The agreement calls for Virtual Piggy's safe youth payments service to be directly integrated into the Payelp framework.

Payelp Global is a revolutionary e-commerce and business development platform. Its payment service processes over 446,000 transactions per minute and is currently used by companies such as Valve, Riot Games, Skype, Apple iTunes, and PayPal. It's currently available in over 74 countries on 300 different payment gateways.

"Payelp Global is an excellent partner that will drastically increase the global reach of our technology," said Virtual Piggy's CEO and Founder, Dr. Jo Webber. "As we continue our international expansion, we're very excited about the ease of integration we'll be able to offer within the countries Payelp serves and continue keeping the younger gaming market safe as they play and transact online."

"We're very delighted to partner with Virtual Piggy," said Albert Donahue, Payelp Global's CEO. "In my opinion, Virtual Piggy is the most effective way to monetize online games within the teen and tween market and generate increased engagement within that age group. More importantly, Virtual Piggy allows younger gamers to play and transact online in a safe and secure manner while keeping the parents in control."

Virtual Piggy is the only COPPA-compliant payment technology designed to allow retailers and game publishers to reach under 18 consumers in a safe, legal, and effective manner. Virtual Piggy promotes financial management while empowering youth under 18 to make purchasing, saving, and other money management decisions within a parental controlled environment. It's always 100% free to use.
