Amazon knows how to make teenagers happier as well as their parents!
Announcing a new service, called Amazon For Teens, Amazon helps parents to meet their children halfway.
The new account gives teens a chance for shopping more independently even if they are less than 18 years old.
Bringing separate logins for teens, but still keeping them connected to their parents’ accounts, Amazon lets teenagers choose what to buy and allows parents either to approve or disapprove the order.
In order to use the service, parents first need to fill their kids’ contact details and also payment card information which they want to use on purchasing process in the app.
Afterwards, a notification will be sent to invite kids to create their own usernames & passwords.
Completing this very easy login system, teens will be able to select the product they want to buy, place the order and even add a note to convince their parents who will receive an e-mail or SMS to approve the order by checking the price, shipping address, the cost, and the note left by kids.
Michael Carr, Vice President, Amazon Households said:
As a parent of a teen, I know how they crave independence, but at the same time that has to be balanced with the convenience and trust that parents need. We’ve listened to families and have built a great experience for both teens and parents,
For teens who have a parent with a Prime membership, they can also access Prime benefits at no additional cost, including fast, free shipping, Prime Video and gaming benefits with Twitch Prime.
As it is wondered, the new service special for teens is only active in the US for now and additional update has not been shared by Amazon yet.
