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

The online shopping giant announced Wednesday a new way for teens 13 to 17 years old to shop or stream content through the Amazon apps with their own logins.

The new move could be a seen simply as a bid to give teenagers more freedom.

Teens using the service will also be able to include a personal note when making a purchase (for example: "This is a book I need for class"). This will send parents a message with details of the order. 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. The parent can approve the order by text or they can visit their orders page to review it in more detail. The kid then receives an invite and they choose their own username and password.

If the approval process gets tedious, parents can also set pre-approved spending limits. "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". Parents receive itemized notifications for every order and can cancel and return any item in accordance with Amazon's policies.

The teen accounts are a part of Amazon Households, an existing Amazon feature that lets Prime members share accounts and payment methods with other family members.

Parents can set up the teen accounts in two ways.

With the holidays quickly approaching, Amazon is doing everything it can to get its Prime service in as many households as possible.
