Vee Loop allows your teen to grow safely into the online shopping era we live in. It gives them independence and freedom with your watchful eye
Maximum freedom for
We know its hard for teens to shop online because you don’t have a payment card, well not anymore, with Vee Loop you can shop all you want and let Dad do the boring bit
Can you tell me more about how it works?
so here are the basic steps:
- The parent signs up
- The parent can add their teen using their email address
- The teen can sign up and will be linked to the parent straight away
- The teen can start the process as well, they can sign up and add the parent using the parent’s email
- The teen can then shop with online shops we are partners with (the more you use us the more retailers we get onboard)
- Say the teen is shopping at YouLook.com, when they get to the point of registering/logging in with the retailer they will also have an option to pay with Vee Loop, which takes them to our secure website and they can Send Order to Mum/Dad
- Mum/Dad get an email notification telling them there is an order from Teen awaiting their approval
- Mum/Dad follow the link or just go to VeeLoop.com and log in to see the order
- Mum/Dad can say Yes or No to items
- Mum/Dad choose delivery method, put in payment details and delivery address
- ONLY Mum/Dad can complete the transaction
- Mum/Dad and Teen get summary of the order
- Teen will receive a notification if all items were rejected by the parent
As a parent do I approve what my teen is buying before I pay for it?
Yes, you will receive notification when your teen creates an order and you will have to Approve/Reject items before proceeding to checkout.
Can I add my nephew to use the service? or does it have to be Mum or Dad?
It doesn’t have to be Mum or Dad, you can add anyone. An adult (paying) account can add up to three teens so you could have a nephew and your two kids for example
Can I the Parent have more than one Teen on Vee Loop?
Yes a Parent account can add up to 3 teens.
Is my card details secure with Vee Loop
Yes indeed, Vee Loop is partnering with an established Payment Gateway to store your details and ensure the highest levels of security are implemented.
Is Vee Loop a Free service?
My vision as a founder and a Parent is NOT to charge the parents or the teens. As a mother of two girls I feel we spend enough raising our kids and need more free services. My mission is to make our money from generating sales for the retailers, we might have to have ads if necessary (I hope not). The more of you show interest in the service the stronger this position becomes, so please support us by putting your email above.
What online shops would Vee Loop work with?
We are asking you this question above, so please go ahead and suggest what shops would you like to see on Vee Loop. When we fully launch we will tell you on our homepage the websites we are partners with. You will also see us as a payment method on the retailer’s website.
Will my teen have access to payment and address details
Absolutely not, your teen will only access the details they provided us and the order history they submitted through Vee Loop
Will my teen disclose any personal details
No they won’t, that’s the whole idea of Vee Loop the teen only gives us basic details about themselves, ie name, DOB, email.
Can I set an allowance for my teen?
Not straight away when we launch, to start with the parent will have to see and approve/reject each order. But we are working on adding an allowance feature where you can set an allowance for your teen and not have to approve every order as long as they stay within this allowance.
Can I add more than one parent?
No, not when we first launch but soon after.
What online shops will Vee Loop work with?
We are asking you this question above, so please suggest what shops would you like to see on Vee Loop. For the latest news follow us
How long will I need to wait for my order?
As soon as your parent has reviewed the order you will get a message from us telling you when your approved items will come. If Mum or Dad reject all your items we will also tell you :(
Will I definitely get the items I ordered?
If your parent takes too long to review the order, some items may run out of stock, we can’t put items on hold. So the quicker your parent approves your order the more chance you have of getting it.
What happens to the items that my parent rejects?
Rejected items will be put in a pile where you and your parents can see. Perhaps you can ask your parent to get you some of those items on your Birthday (if they are still available of course)
Randa Bennett - Founder of Vee Loop
I'm a busy, working mother of two and like many mums today I try to do everything I can online, especially shopping.
When I tried to encourage my teen to be independent and do things for herself we felt there isn't a safe way for her to shop online that gives me the peace of mind I need. That's when the idea for Vee Loop started to shape. My experience working in the tech industry for the past 14 years is helping turn this idea into reality. My aim is to help other families get the balance right between choice for teens and control for parents - hopefully making family life just a little bit easier!
Watch this space for our big launch soon. If you have any questions or ideas please drop me a line below.
