Amazon Introduces Logins For Teen Shoppers

The new teen accounts are a part of Amazon Households, the Amazon feature that allows customers to share their Prime accounts with other family members, create shared digital libraries for the family, and share credit and debit cards.

Amazon has released a new way for parents to control what their teenage children are buying on the shopping website. Teens can also be assigned pre-set spending limits per order as an alternative to having orders reviewed. The logic is that these teens will continue to shop through Amazon on their own once they become adults.

Setting up a teen account on Amazon requires input from the parent.

A Household allows you to connect and share Amazon benefits with the whole family. The kid then receives an invite and they choose their own username and password.

Amazon has launched a new monthly payment plan for Prime Student, according to a recent press release.

Teens can use their unique accounts to place orders using the Amazon app. To get started, parents can visit amazon.com/forteens or sign up via a text or email invitation from their teens. This should work out good for parents and kids.

For the time being, however, the feature is more about letting teens shop a bit more independently.

Analysts say by essentially establishing an online allowance, Amazon has found a way to lure in the next generation of consumers. Teens can select items that they'd like to buy, and Amazon will send their parents a text message with a description of the item and a link to approve the purchase. Parents are shown the item, how much it costs, and similar details, as well as any note about it the teen may have made.
