Pastrana Signs Endorsement Deal With Teen Payment System


Motocross racer and four-time Rally America champion Travis Pastrana has signed an endorsement deal with Socialwise, Inc.'s online BillMyParents payment system.

The company plans to roll out a major marketing campaign featuring top action sports athletes and retail partners.

BillMyParents offers a “Supervised Shopping” program that lets teens fill a shopping cart at a partner retail site, click on the BillMyParents payment button beside each product, and send the selection by email or text to the parent, who manages and approves requests. Parents can also choose to deposit allowance-like spending amounts in advance for teens' use.

"The BillMyParents programs are ideal for teens in today's fast-paced world," says Pastrana. "I hate waiting and go for what I want, and these solutions mean teens can have that too. They can let their parents know what they want with the click of a button, and parents get peace of mind."

Pastrana was the World Freestyle Motocross champion at 14 and has 9 X Games gold medals. He is also the reigning Rally America Series champion, a title he's won four years in a row. The popular MTV show "Nitro Circus" follows him and fellow daredevils around the world.
