Allowance Manager User Roles and Levels

Allowance Manager (AM) is an online service that simplifies the task of administering, receiving, tracking, and otherwise managing allowances. To accomplish this, it defines a number of user roles and levels.

User Roles

Within AM, there are two types of users:

  • Administrator (Admin) – the allowance giver, and
  • Recipient (Recipient) – the allowance recipient.
User Levels

Allowance Manager is available in two levels of functionality:

  • Junior – basic, self-serve, cash ledger functionality, and
  • Premium – Junior features, plus Premium features.

Junior is provided at no charge, while Premium is offered for an annual subscription fee with additional fees based upon how you use it.

One of the important features of Premium is the AllowanceCard, governed by additional terms available at AllowanceCard Cardholder Agreement.

When you as an Admin user choose to make a Recipient user a Premium user, you enter payment credentials which are stored (“Stored Account”) to handle transactions related to the Premium subscription, including the recurring annual Allowance Manager Premium Fee, and any unscheduled transactions like value loads and card replacement fees as noted in the following table:
