In this tutorial, we will see how to set up your Amazon Seller account to use Amazon Pay in your Voiceflow Alexa project.
To be able to follow those steps, you want to first check that you’re all set with your seller account by following the Amazon Pay documentation here:
Once you’re ready, you will need to enable the integration for your Alexa skill.
For this tutorial, we will use the sandbox view so be sure to select the corresponding account.
1) Go to your Amazon Seller account and select the Amazon Pay (Sandbox View) for your account.
On the new page, click on the Integration Central link in the Configuration section.
Then, select Alexa, choose Connect Amazon Pay to an existing skill and click on Go to skill settings
2) On the new page, click on the Connect an Alexa skill button
If you haven’t created a Voiceflow project yet, do it now or import the Amazon Pay Demo project to your account and click on the upload to Alexa button in Voiceflow as you will need your skill ID in the next step.
You will now need to fill in your skill Id to link your skill.
To find your skill ID, in your Voiceflow project, click on the Launch tab and the More Info link in the top right.
or you can go to your Alexa Developer Console and click on the Copy Skill ID link
Enter the skill Id and hit the Connect button
The new skill should now be visible on your list
You can close that page and go back to the Amazon Seller page by clicking on the top left logo
3) We are now going to create a Test account, to do so, click on the Test accounts link in the Sandbox testing section
On the next page, click on Create a new test account button
Create your test account with the information you want on the next screen
And confirm the account creation by clicking on the Create account button at the bottom of the page
4) Last step, you need to get your Amazon Seller ID as you will need it in your Voiceflow project to setup the Amazon Pay integration.
To easily access that ID, use this link while logged on your Amazon Seller Central portal:
Select and copy that ID and save it for later.
