Can I stop others from buying things under my name? I have 3 people on my family share.

Also can they just purchase with their own credit card and not mine?

I am wondering the same thing... There are people that say that you can add credit cards for each user and that their accounts will purchase through that but I have not found any solid information on this online.

I have added a single payment method.

It seems like the only work around for the non-organizers is to use an iTunes gift card.
If they are added while under 18 there is option to give permission to buy and will be that way forever until option changed / removed (then cannot re enable again). If added when older cannot have option. This is a stupid oversight by apple's part and we should be able to restrict at any age. My daughter is 17 which is fine but son is 19 still at home going to college and I want to restrict him also but I can't.

They are all over 18, unfortunately.
