Teens Get Their Own Amazon Accounts, With Parents' Approval

Teens Get Their Own Amazon Accounts, With Parents' Approval”

The For Teens login is only made possible if the parent agrees, and parents ultimately retain the power over their teen's shopping habits, including settings spending limits and having the ability to deny an order.

Amazon has announced a new service that will open up its gargantuan ecommerce platform to millions more teenagers.

The new service should also make life a little easier for parents - a key demographic for Amazon - allowing them to create separate Amazon log-ins for their kids that they can monitor. If the parents subscribe to Amazon Prime, the teens will receive access to Prime-exclusive features like Prime Video and Twitch as well.

Parents who aren't pleased with their child's purchase have up to 30 minutes to cancel an order, according to an Amazon spokeswoman. This will send parents a message with details of the order., Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) today unveiled a new way for teens to shop for the items they want all by themselves - with parents' approval, of course.

Parents can choose not to approve each item their teens buy and instead set spending limits per order.

"Our new monthly payment option lets students enjoy the best of Amazon in a more flexible and simple way", Ellen Kinney, Director of Amazon Prime Student, said in a statement. "We've listened to families and have built a great experience for both teens and parents", said Michael Carr, vice president, Amazon Households.

That means Amazon would then be tapping into the pocket money teens may have on hand from their part-time jobs, babysitting money, allowances and the like.
