Alloy Online, a teen Internet portal, named PocketCard as its preferred form of payment for its teen customers, superceding the four major credit cards currently listed on its shopping checkout page. Enrollment for the Visa debit cards is via pocketcard.com. The cards carry the Alloy.com
URL and the teen's name, but the card has built-in preset spending limits which are set by parents. Spending also can be tracked through instant e-mail alerts.
