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.
