The parent will choose a payment method and shipping addresses their teen can use when placing orders.
For parents, an email or text message is sent when the order is "placed" - that is, when the teen is ready to order, but the item isn't actually purchased yet.
"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".
Parents can set up the teen accounts in two ways. Once a teen receives an invitation, they can create their own username and password.

Their credit card information will be hidden on the teen accounts, as will their purchase and browsing histories. And the option to enroll in the program on a monthly basis eliminates the need for cash-strapped students to have to commit to the full-year Amazon Prime membership if they don't want to.
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.
