Final call: Submissions close Tuesday (11/12)

Just a final shout-out that you have two more days left in the Alexa Skills Challenge: In-Skill Purchasing to submit your skill.

Submissions are due November 12 before 5pm ET. (Find out what time that is in your city)

If you haven't started a submission yet, please do so now. (We’ll walk you through our submission form process if you need help.) 

Submission checklist

Before the deadline passes, make sure you run through this list:

  • Are you submitting a functioning Alexa skill that uses In-Skill Purchasing (ISP) and offers premium paid content for customers and is available for purchase?
  • Have you created a submission video? Does your video meet the competition guidelines? Does your video clearly demonstrate how your skill uses ISP? Is it no more than five minutes long? (See our video-making best practices.)
  • Have you submitted your skill to the Alexa Skill Store for certification? (Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do that.)
  • Have you met the requirements? Remember: Skills must integrate In-Skill Purchasing be published in countries where In-Skill Purchasing is available. Currently, ISP is available in the US, United Kingdom, Germany, and Japan skill stores.  For existing skills, submitters will be required to have integrated ISP during the submission period. Existing skills that already integrated ISP will NOT be eligible.

Good luck - we can’t wait to see your skill!
