Three weeks left—start your submission

There are three weeks remaining in the Alexa Skills Challenge: In-Skill Purchasing. Submissions are due November 12, 2019 before 5pm ET. (Find out what time that is in your city)

Start your submission now

Starting a submission is a good way to make sure that your skill meets the requirements. There’s nothing worse than getting to the deadline, only to realize that you’re missing a key component. Remember: once you submit a project, you can keep editing it as needed at any time prior to the submission deadline. Need a primer on how the submission form works?

Prepare your video

Don’t forget that your submission must include a video demonstrating your skill for this competition. Check out our video-making tips here. As always, we strongly recommend that you don’t wait to the last minute.

Requirement Reminder

Main Requirement: Build (or update) and publish a skill that integrates In-Skill Purchasing. Skills must be published in at least one of the Skill Stores that currently support ISP: US, UK, DE, and JP.

Important Note: Submitters in most countries can publish skills in the four supported stores as long as:

  1. The skill supports the primary language and
  2. The developer lives in a country which allows them to earn money through In-Skill Purchasing
  3. Remember: Existing skills that already integrated ISP will NOT be eligible.
