Amazon announces independent teen accounts (with parental oversight)

Amazon now lets teenagers shop via separate logins attached to their parents' accounts

Though some have raised concerns over the move, saying that this will allow Amazon to collect data from teenager users, as well as giving teenager such easy access to a parent's credit card. Amazon will allow parents to scrap the approval setup in favor of setting spending limits, too, the company says.

This press release features multimedia. (An annual Amazon Prime Student membership costs $49, compared with $99 for regular members.) Amazon, which had annual revenue of $136 billion past year, accounts for roughly one-third of all online USA sales.

Teens can also input a reason they need an item. "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. Once received, the parent confirms which payment method and shipping address will be used for teens' orders.

"The teen can also include a personalized note like, 'This is the book I need for class, '" the company said.

Once you get it set up, you'll receive a text or email every time your teen orders something off Amazon. The kid then receives an invite and they choose their own username and password.

Pre-approving orders is done alongside establishing a spending limit, meaning that while the teen can order anything they want, they can only do such up to a certain price before the ability is taken away. Once the order is placed, parents can see an itemized invoice and are able to cancel and return items, according to Amazon.com's normal terms. However, teens won't be completely free to do as they please, since parents will be alerted about purchases and will have to approve transactions. When they find something they want to buy, that item is sent to the parent for approval via text or email.

Reflecting how kids use the internet these days, the new shopping system only works through the Amazon mobile app.
