If accepted, the purchase will be added to their payment method and will be charged to them. You don’t need to provide a credit card number or other payment information as the purchase will be linked to the family member’s Google Account. You can even set up recurring requests for things like subscriptions and other reoccurring expenses.
The feature also allows for better organization of your purchases. All the purchase requests you have made will be stored in one place, so it’s easy to keep track of who has paid for what and when.
In addition, you can use the Family Payment feature to track and manage all purchases across your family, so you can easily review any past purchases or view upcoming payments. You can even restrict certain types of purchases or limit spending amounts.
Overall, this new family payments feature on Google Play makes it easier than ever to pay for goods and services without having to worry about exchanging money or providing payment information.

With this feature, family members can easily coordinate and share payment options with one another. Additionally, it allows parents to better manage their children’s app purchases and avoid unexpected charges. The feature also eliminates the need for users to remember multiple usernames and passwords for their family members’ accounts. Furthermore, it simplifies the process of requesting money from family members, as requests can be sent directly to a single family member’s account. Lastly, this feature can help users save time and money when making online purchases, as they no longer need to pay separately or go through the hassle of using third-party payment methods.

After that, you can review the purchase request and confirm it. Your family member will receive an email with the details of the purchase, and will then be able to accept or reject it.
That’s all there is to it! With this new feature, it’s now easier than ever to make purchases for your family without having to manually transfer money back and forth.
