This payment button gives parents approval over their children's online purchases. Based in Tel Aviv, Thumzap is designed specifically to keep teen mobile spending in check, something that is increasingly relevant as retailers turn to a mobile-first approach when it comes to e-commerce, not to mention the prevalence and near-constant use of smartphones among tech-savvy young people doing some online shopping.

The secure and simple to use system notifies parents when their teenage kids buy something online and allows them to approve the purchase. Although many brands target this age demographic, teens often rely on their parents for money, making the payment button a great way to manage spending and catch extraneous expenses early on.
