  • Publication number: 20150254648
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention disclose utilizing a token associated with a payment device to enter into transactions. In some embodiments the token is associated directly with a payment device, while in other embodiments the token may be associated with a digital wallet that is associated with the payment device. Particularly, embodiments of the present invention may create a managed digital wallet for a client. A client may then designate individuals to participate in the wallet as an administrator and/or as a user. The present invention may allow a client to control the purchases of a user of the account using the token through the use of limits. Each of the users associated with the account may be assigned one or more individual tokens to use with the digital wallet to enter into transactions instead of using the actual account information of accounts associated with the digital wallet.
