How do I sign up for Vircle?
If you're a parent, guardian, or will be the Primary Accountholder who funds your kids' Vircle cards, follow these quick steps to get started:
Start your family Vircle account in just a few steps:
Sign up for a Parent Account: Download the Vircle app from Google Playstore or Apple AppStore and register for a Parent account.
Adding your Kid: There is no limit to how many kids you wish to add. Each kid you add will automatically get their own Vircle debit (VISA) or prepaid (School) card. View our plans here.
Verifying your identity: We only need your name, email address, IC number to ensure the safety of your account, your funds, and your kids' cards.
Setting up your Parent’s Wallet: The Parent's Wallet is a virtual wallet where you can load money from your credit/debit card or bank account. The money you load is yours, and after signup you can transfer money to your kid whenever, wherever, and for whatever. Funds in your Parent's Wallet can also be used to cover your monthly Vircle subscription fee after your first month.
After signing up, your kids’ cards will automatically be created and typically take 7-10 business days to arrive. In the meantime, log into your app to help your kids set up their profiles, and start realizing the benefits of Vircle!
How long does it take for my kids’ prepaid Visa card to arrive?
All standard Vircle Prepaid cards will ship at no cost to you and will take 7-10 business days to arrive at your doorstep!

There are 2 plans that are offered:
Vircle Basic – this is a completely free plan that offers the core tools for kids to save, spend, receive allowances.

How can I check my kid's spending history?
We have made it super easy to check your kid's spending history!
1. Navigate to your kid's dashboard.
2. Click on the Spend History.
3. You then have the ability to filter by the last 7 days, 30 days, 60 days, or 90 days as well as type of transactions such as Payments, Refund or Cancelled.
What is Allowance Given, Available Balance and Parent Wallet?
Parent Wallet: This is where all your top up money goes. It's safe and secure and your kid has NO access the money you have in Parent wallet.
Allowance Given: Whenever you approve an allowance for your kid to spend, the amount is set aside in the allowance given bucket. This money still sits with you but your kid has permission to use it. If you decide to set an allowance with an expiry date, the amount automatically reduces in allowance given and money goes back to Parent Wallet upon its due date.
Available Balance: Available balance in the parent dashboard is a summary of how much money from your ewallet you can still allocate to your kid.
