To set up Amazon Household and share Amazon Prime benefits with family members or friends, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to Your Amazon Account: Make sure you are signed in to your Amazon account with an active Amazon Prime membership.
  2. Go to Amazon Household: Visit the Amazon Household page at:
  3. Create Your Household: Click on the “Add Adult” or “Add Teen” button to invite an adult family member or a teen (age 13 to 17 years old) to your household. If you want to add a child (age 12 years old or younger) to your household, click on “Add a Child.”
  4. Enter Their Information: Fill in the required information for the adult, teen, or child you want to add to your household. If the person you want to add already has an Amazon account, they’ll receive an invitation to join your household. If they don’t have an Amazon account, they will be guided to create one.
  5. Confirm the Invitation: The person you invited will receive an email invitation to join your Amazon Household. They need to click on the invitation link and follow the instructions to confirm.
  6. Share Your Prime Benefits: Once the person has accepted the invitation and joined your household, you can share select Amazon Prime benefits with them. These benefits include free two-day shipping on eligible items, Prime Video streaming, Amazon Photos, Kindle Owners’ Lending Library, and Amazon First Reads.
  7. Set Up Payment Sharing (Optional): As the main account holder, you can set up payment sharing to share payment methods with adult members of your household. This allows adult members to use the payment information for their purchases on Amazon.

Please note the following important points regarding Amazon Household:

  • An Amazon Household can have up to two adult profiles (18 years or older), up to four teen profiles (13 to 17 years old), and up to four child profiles (12 years old or younger).
  • Teens in an Amazon Household can have their own login credentials and make purchases using the shared payment method with parental approval.
  • Child profiles cannot make purchases and are for content access and parental controls only.

Amazon’s policies and features may change over time, so it’s always a good idea to refer to the official Amazon Household page or contact Amazon support if you encounter any issues during the setup process.
