Every month starting March 2019, Alexa developers located in India and publishing skills to the India Alexa Skills Store can earn money for the eligible Alexa skills that drive some of the highest customer engagement, as part of the limited-period Alexa Developer Rewards Program.
Eligible skill categories include: Education & Reference; Food & Drink; Games, Trivia & Accessories; Health & Fitness; Kids, Lifestyle; Music & Audio; and Productivity. Developers can increase their level of skill engagement and potentially earn more by improving their skill, building more skills, and making their skills available in the US, UK, Japan, Germany, France, India, Italy, and Spain.
Not only can developers make money, they can save money too with AWS promotional credits. These credits can help you build and host your Alexa skills for free. There’s no better time to bring your ideas to life.
