Alexa Skill Monetization

Learn how to make money with your Alexa Skills and Jovo.


The possibility of monetizing an application is an important part of building a sustainable ecosystem arounnd a platform like Alexa.

Over the last few years, Amazon introduced several concepts how creators can make money with their skills.

Types of Monetization

There are two main types of how you can make money with your Alexa Skills.

In-Skill Purchases (ISPs) can be seen as the equivalent of in-app purchases in mobile apps. If you have digital goods (for example additional questions or lives in a game, or content subscriptions) that you want to sell, ISPs are the way to go. Learn more about In-Skill Purchases here.

Amazon Pay is the payment service provided by Amazon. Alexa Skills that sell goods like physical products or tickets can use the integration for a seamless checkout expeience. Learn more about Amazon Pay here.
