Amazon refunding up to $70M for kids' purchases

(NBC) - Amazon will have to repay parents for unauthorized in-app purchases made by their children.

The Federal Trade Commission and Amazon agreed Tuesday to end appeals related to last year's court findings that Amazon billed consumers for unauthorized in-app purchases their children made without permission.

Amazon has made changes in how in-app purchases are made since the FTC began probing the issue.

More than $70 million in-app charges made between November 2011 and May 2016 may be eligible for refunds.
