Amazon now lets teenagers shop via separate logins attached to their parents' accounts
12 October, 2017, 00:42
Amazon has released a new way for parents to control what their teenage children are buying on the shopping website.
Parents are able to approve all orders or set preapproved spending limits per order, which would give teenage users a customized level of autonomy that can change as they grow. "We've listened to families and have built a great experience for both teens and parents", commented Michael Carr, Vice President, Amazon Households.
Minors ages 13 through 17 will now be allowed to create their own login and independently shop on the Amazon app, instead of using their parents' account log in. And the option to enroll in the program on a monthly basis eliminates the need for cash-strapped students to have to commit to the full-year Amazon Prime membership if they don't want to. They can approve the purchase through text or their account. The invitation will be sent to parents via text message or email.

On top of the usual perks of a Prime membership - including free two-day shipping and access to Prime Video's streamable movies and TV shows - the company says Prime Students will get access to special deals, or "coupons", through their subscription.
The set up also aims to encourage teens to use their parents' Prime accounts, if they have them. The kid then receives an invite and they choose their own username and password. To get started, parents can visit amazon.com/forteens. Parents receive itemized notifications for every order and can cancel and return any item in accordance with Amazon's policies.
Their credit card information will be hidden on the teen accounts, as will their purchase and browsing histories.
