Alexa Shopping sits at the intersection of two key pieces of Amazon - Alexa and Retail. The Alexa Shopping team builds experiences that customers use to instantly order whatever they need by interacting with Alexa on any supported smart device. Our services allow you to shop without interrupting what you're doing, letting customers go from "I want" to "It's on the way" in a matter of seconds.
