It depends whether you are using Gimi with a connected bank account or with a piggybank.
Connected bank account: Yes, real money
If a parent has connected their child's bank account to the Gimi app, the app will display the actual balance in the account. All deposits made through the app will be transferred as real money to the connected bank account. Please note that this feature is only available in certain countries.
Piggybank: No, not real money
The piggybank is a tracker of the child’s allowance, and works like a simple calculator. When the child wants to buy something for the piggybank money, the parent pays and deduct the respective amount from the piggybank using the minus button. When the parent wants to top up the piggybank, they use the plus button. No bank transfers or withdrawals. The piggybank is meant to practice with - get a bank account when your child is ready!
