Approve a Teen's Order

When a teen places an order, the parent can review and approve the order. Parents can get teen order notifications via email, text or both. Parents can approve orders through Your Orders or by text.

To approve through Your Orders:

  1. Go to Your Orders. In the Amazon app, Your Orders can be accessed through the main app menu.
  2. You’ll see an alert box that says view orders placed by your teen.
  3. You can then approve or decline each individual order awaiting approval.


  • If you have set a spending limit for your teen and the order is below that spending limit or you have selected to automatically approve all orders, you won’t be asked to approve your teen’s order before it’s fulfilled, but you will be notified of the purchase. You can change these settings at any time in the teen’s profile in Manage Your Household.
  • If the teen order was placed more than 48 hours ago, it will have expired and you won’t be able approve it. Please have your teen place a new order.
