Amazon Household is a useful feature developed by Amazon to allow all members of a household to use Amazon’s benefits, which would mean Amazon Prime services, which includes a ton of things, such as sharing streaming access to a ton of movies and TV shows with Prime Video.
What is Amazon Household?
Amazon Household is one useful feature that lets you share the Amazon/Audible content as well as your payment method with another Amazon without affecting your account’s privacy and security.
Generally, Amazon considers two adults, and up to four teens and four child profiles as a household.
How to Sign up for Amazon Household?
If you want to set up an Amazon Household plan, you can do that by following the given simple steps:
- Log into your Amazon account and at the top of the screen, click on ‘Accounts and Lists’ on your device.
- On the next page, you will see a box that has the subject line ‘Shopping Programs and Rentals’, you have to click on the ‘Amazon Household’ link given under it.
- Start by adding members to your Household plan and to add the members, you have to click on the add button for each category such as Children, Teens and Adults.
- Adults need to have their own Amazon account while teens can be added to the existing account. Teens can even make purchases, however, the confirmation link will be sent to the adult account holders.
Now, when one thinks of a household, one thinks of a family living under the same roof, and living under the same roof means sharing the same address.
So, here’s a question which we have a lot of Amazon household user ask us:
Does Amazon Household have to have the same address for all profiles?
Maybe your children live somewhere else and don’t share the same address with you. Could they still benefit from Amazon Household?
Our team at Got Suspended? took to the depths of the internet in order to figure out an answer to this burning question, because, with all the suspensions that are going on (even if they are limited to Amazon sellers only), Amazon account services are flooded with concerns by Amazon subscribers. What if Amazon decides to suspend them, or simply reprimand them for using a single Amazon Household under different addresses.
Here’s What We Found Out:
It appears that the two adults who are part of an Amazon Household can have their own separate accounts on Amazon and use the same Amazon Household with no issues. If they have a bunch of kids, those kids can also use Amazon accounts connected to an adult’s account. In total, an Amazon Household can be used for up to 10 people (two adults, for teens under the age of 18, and four younger children.
But what about the address? Do all members need to have the same address?
Not necessarily! One of the two adults can set up the Amazon Household, and the rest can use it even if their addresses are different.
We dug even deeper and found out that all the members of an Amazon Household need to use the same computer for registering for that Amazon Household. After this process is done, they can go about using Amazon Household while living in different households. We wouldn’t be surprised if Amazon decided to change its policies regarding this issue. Our Amazon reinstatement service, Got Suspended?, has seen Amazon change overnight enough to know that almost nothing with this platform is set in stone. Even though suspensions have little to do with Amazon Households, we, as professionals, will keep pace with any developments Amazon might have with this service, and we’ll update you accordingly! Make sure you stay in touch so you can get the latest updates as they come in!
