Today, we're announcing that we have expanded the Alexa Developer Rewards program to Australia and New Zealand. From April, you can make money for eligible skills published to the Australian Skill Store that garner the highest customer engagement each month, as well as in the US, the UK, Germany, Japan, India, France, Italy, and Spain. You can learn more about Alexa Developer Rewards by visiting our local page.
We evaluate customer engagement and determine skill rewards on a monthly basis. You can increase customer engagement and potentially earn more rewards by improving your existing skills and publishing new ones. You can also read about best practices for promoting your Alexa skills to reach more customers.
Eligible skill categories include:
To date, the Alexa Developer Rewards program has paid millions of dollars to developers in more than 20 countries. You can read about how Gal Shenar, David Markey, and Oscar Merry earned Alexa Developer Rewards on the Alexa developer blog.
There is no need to apply for the program. If your skill qualifies for rewards, you will receive an email from the Alexa team. The email will cover the next steps for your registration and payment account setup. Make sure your profile section is up to date in the Alexa Developer Console.
