Google Purchase Request Features: US-based technology giant Google has added a new “Purchase Request” feature that gives family managers the option to approve or decline purchases for their children. Google is adding new and easy ways for families to securely purchase both paid apps and in-app purchases.
Google Purchase Request Feature: Explained
Google Play allows children under the age of 13 to submit purchase requests directly to the family manager if the user has not set up a family payment method. Users can then evaluate the request and important information regarding your application or in-app purchase on their device and decide whether to complete the purchase.
To complete a purchase, you can use your own stored payment method, such as a Google Play gift card. Family Managers receive real-time notifications of these purchase requests, but can also review them in the Approval Requests Queue and make decisions later. Similar to your family’s payment methods, you can see all transactions completed through purchase requests in your order history.
