    Amazon Alexa for your eCommerce Store

    Have you ever thought how nice would it be to connect your eCommerce store to Amazon Alexa and ask your Amazon Echo device for important information about your stores such as orders, inventory, and store performance summaries?

    Amazon Alexa for your eCommerce Store is a trending topic nowadays. Let’s know a bit about it.

    What is Amazon Echo?

    Amazon Echo is a range of smart speakers which you to control with your voice. Echo connects to Alexa, which is Amazon’s virtual assistant to provide various services.

    When you want to use Echo, just say the wake word “Alexa” and Echo responds instantly. The default activation word is “Alexa”.

    Ask things like “Alexa, tell me the live cricket score”, “Alexa, what is today’s weather”, and “Alexa, what time is it”.

    Or ask to play music, control some home automation systems, and more. You can also order the products from Amazon too.

    If you have more than one smart speaker, Echo or Echo Dot, Alexa responds intelligently from the Echo you’re closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception).

    Role of Alexa in eCommerce

    The goal, however, is to get it hooked up to an eCommerce store running on CS-Cart, Magento, Opencart, Shopify etc, for fun. If you want to check the store status, then ask simple questions that map to searches in an eCommerce store.

    Alexa supports the concept of multiple “skill sets”. Obviously, as the number of available skills increases, you need to make sure you have a unique phase to identify the skill set you want.

    For example, you can say “Alexa, ask my eCommerce store blah blah blah”. A skill must have a phrase that identifies the skill.
