Instead of sharing credentials with minors or ordering on their behalf, parents can now give their very own Amazon For Teens account. This new feature from the online megastore makes online shopping a more streamlined experience for the younger members of the family.

If the teenager wants to buy something, they just add it to cart and a notification for approval is sent to the parents. To make parents spend money faster, they even have an SMS notification service so parents can just reply with a “Y” to forward the order to shipment.

With the Teen account, little notes can also be attached to the purchase requests. This approval system makes sure there’s no surprise for parents once the credit card bill arrives. For parents who have a bit more trust in their children, there is also a mode where they can just a spending limit for their kids — a sort of Amazon allowance. With over $200-billion spent by and for teens in the U.S. alone, this age group is definitely worth their own Amazon accounts.
