FYI, an alternative way is to use customer profile api to get users’ email address without saying.


Thanks for the advice Kun, big help! The only issue with your solution though, is that it only provides the user email address, and not the email of the user’s customer. My application will require input from both the alexa device user AND the user’s customer.
