Osper is a web and mobile app-based service for parents who wish to improve the money management skills of their children aged 8 and upwards. As part of Osper, parents and young people receive access to a powerful money management mobile app on Android and iOS (the “ Osper App ”) and receive a prepaid debit card (an“ Osper Card ”). A parent adds money to a young person’s Osper Card through the Osper App which the young person can spend using their Osper Card.
The Osper Card is a prepaid debit card powered by Mastercard and designed for young people to use with their parents’ supervision. See theOsperCardholder Agreementfor full details about the Osper Card.

For new customers, from time to time we offer free trials of Osper for a designated period of time as determined by Osper (the “ Trial Period ”).The Trial Period usually starts from when you order the Osper Card. During the Trial Period, you will not be charged any Osper subscription fees, but you will be charged for your reasonable use of the Osper Card if you use it for one of the things we have to charge you for – seehttps://osper.com/pricingfor a list of the things we have to charge for.

If you do not want us to charge you, you must cancelyour contract withus before the end of the Trial Period by notifying us. Please seethe cancellationsection below which sets out how you may cancel your contract with Osper.
The Osper subscription fees for your access and use of Osper are usually collected on a monthly basis. Unless we notify you otherwise, monthly subscription fees will be collected at the beginning of your subscription period, starting from the first day after the end of your Trial Period, or, from the date you order an Osper Card (if ordered without a Trial Period). You will then continue to be charged on a monthly basis until you cancel your Osper subscription.
Osper may, from time to time, provide the option to pay the Osper subscription fee on an annual basis. If you choose this option, the applicable annual fee will be communicated to you when you order the Osper Card. The billing cycle for your Osper subscription will commence on either the first day after the end of the Trial Period, or, on the date you order an Osper Card (if ordered without a Trial Period). You will continue to be charged on an annual basis until you cancel your Osper subscription.
We will collect the subscription payment automatically from your parent wallet balance or registered debit card. You must provide your payment details when you active the Osper Card.
If we are unable to collect the subscription payment from the parent wallet or your registered debit card we will email you to let you know. We may re-attempt to collect the subscription payment several times to make sure we maximise your chance of being able to continue using Osper.
If the subscription is overdue, we may collect a late subscription fee from the Osper card. We will charge the late subscription fee every month until the Osper card balance reaches zero or the subscription is paid. The late subscription fee will be communicated in ourpricing schedule.

We may collect a late subscription fee from the Osper card when the subscription is more than 7 days overdue. Osper incurs costs to maintain the service for every active Osper card.

Once your application has been approved, you will receive a confirmation that your Osper card is on its way.
When you receive the Osper Card, we recommend you or your child makes a note of the 8 digit number that appears on the Osper Card for contacting the Osper Help team in case of future need, e.g. if they lose their card. Parents may also wish to keep a copy. You should then ensure they sign the back of the card straight-away.

Once your application has been approved, you will receive a confirmation that you are ready to use Osper.
Your child can retrieve their PIN by logging into their Osper App and following the instructions in the PIN reminder feature. We recommend parents help their child to understand the importance of remembering their PIN and keeping it secret from other people. Young people will need this PIN to withdraw cash at cash machines and to spend money with their Osper Cards in stores using Chip and PIN machines.
There are two ways to load funds onto an Osper card
You will be able to load funds onto the Osper card from your Osper parent wallet. During the Osper Card activation, you will be required to add a UK registered debit card which will be used to top-up the parent wallet.
You can make a one-off top-up to the parent wallet or set-up an auto top-up which will automatically add funds to your parent wallet based on set triggers, listed below.
We have limits on how much you top-up into the parent wallet. You will be unable to make a top-up which would exceed any of these limits. You can see these on ourlimits page.
Osper may charge a loading administration fee to add funds to your parent wallet. You can find all fees that we charge outside the Osper subscription in ourpricing and fees page.
You can view the balance of your Parent Wallet in the Osper app. The funds in your parent wallet can be used to make an instant load to the Osper card or to make regular weekly or monthly allowance loads to the Osper card.
If there are insufficient funds in the Parent Wallet to make a load, you will need to top-up the wallet first, unless you have enabled the auto top-up feature.
If you make a mistake while loading money onto an Osper Card (e.g. you loaded too much) then please contact the Osper Help team. They will attempt to correct the mistake and move the corrected funds back to the parent wallet. However, please note, that if the cardholder has spent the money by the time the correction is attempted then it will not be possible to take back the funds..
Auto top-up makes sure that there are funds on your Osper parent account to load onto the Osper Card the regular allowance, one-off loads and to pay the Osper Card subscription payment.
A Parent wallet auto top up will automatically top-up your Osper parent account with an amount you choose from your registered UK debit card once per month.
You can enable, disable or change an auto top-up at any time and the change will be be effective the next working day or on the next auto-top up date, whichever is later.
Osper may charge a loading administration fee to add funds to your parent wallet. You can find all fees that we charge outside the Osper subscription in ourpricing and fees page.
When we are given notice that you wish to terminate your contract with Osper, once all pending transactions have cleared and fees settled, any remaining funds on the Osper parent account and any Osper Cards associated with your account, can be refunded onto the source of funds free of charge.
You may also request funds are refunded to the source of funds by contacting our support team. We may charge you to refund funds during your subscription. You can find all fees that we charge outside the Osper subscription in ourpricingand fees page.
Gifting allows friends and family to instantly load funds directly onto an Osper Card using their UK registered debit card. You can find the unique gifting link for each Osper Card in the Osper app. The person who is gifting won’t need to download the Osper App, they just need to use the unique gifting link.
We will create a gifting account when someone first makes a gift. We may charge a loading administration fee to load the card which will be shown when the gifter confirms the load.
Please see the Osper Cardholder Agreement for full details on using an Osper Card.
Once you have signed up to Osper, you can access the Osper App to manage your Osper accounts.
The Osper App allows young people to manage their Osper Card and parents to give them money and have visibility of their children’s account activity. The Osper App is slightly different for young people and parents.
Young people can use the Osper App to view transactions, check the balance of their Osper card, temporarily lock their Osper Card and perform other activities. Parents can view the accounts of each of their children, load money onto their children’s Osper Cards, set-up recurring allowances and perform other activities. Features will continue to be added to the Osper App as Osper evolves.
We strongly recommend the Osper App be used by both parents and young people to get the best experience from the Osper service.
Yes. Many of the young people using our service do not have an iPhone or Android phone. They manage their accounts using the household iPad, Android tablet, iPod Touch or their parent’s phone. Please visit the Osper FAQs for more information.
