#WebExtra: Amazon Offers Account for Teens

If parents want to give their teen more autonomy, they can skip the approval step altogether and just set spending limits. That means teens can order from over 50 million items that ship for free in two days, and they can take advantage of other Prime benefits like Prime Video and the gaming perks with Twitch Prime.

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) is now allowing teens to make their own accounts on its website. This will send parents a message with details of the order. Teens can also optionally attach a note, like "this is the book I need for class", Amazon says.

Teen logins are evidently a new feature of Amazon Households, which allows an account holder to share prime shipping and digital content with members of their households. In this case, the parent will receive a notification with an itemized list of the order, and the option remains to cancel it or initiate a refund if it is too late to cancel. "This is a move that will get families deeper into Amazon, while also cultivating future Prime members". Two adults and up to four teens and four child profiles may link in a Household.

If you prefer to avoid handing over your credit card outright whenever your teens want or need something on Amazon, the retail giant has you covered.

Amazon is giving teenagers a bit of independence by allowing them to place their own orders under their own login while using their parent (s) Prime subscription. "We've listened to families and have built a great experience for both teens and parents", Michael Carr, vice president, Amazon Households said in a statement. In the past, this is the money teens may have spent at the mall instead.
