Amazon Dash Replenishment

Convenient reordering powered by Alexa and Amazon

What is Dash Replenishment?

Amazon Dash Replenishment is an Amazon service, integrated with Alexa, that you can add to your connected devices to make reordering supplies or replacement parts easy for your customers. Once set up, your customers can track supply levels within the Alexa app, receive notifications from Alexa when supplies are running low or parts need replacement, and smart reorder from Amazon when needed. Dash Replenishment takes advantage of Amazon's payment systems, customer service, and fulfillment network to give your customers access to Amazon's low prices, great selection, and reliable delivery.

Why Add Dash Replenishment to Your Devices?

Delight Your Customers

You can help customers avoid running out of the supplies used with your device through notifications from Alexa when they are running low and smart reordering. By making it easy to keep your device working at its best, you can increase customer engagement and satisfaction.

Create a Recurring Revenue Stream

You can sell consumables that you manufacture for your device or you can choose to revenue share for other consumables sold on Amazon.com, creating new opportunities for you to grow your business.

Adopt Easily

Amazon provides the customer set up experience in the Alexa app, keeps track of the inventory in the cloud, and automatically reorders supplies. All you need to do is implement inventory reporting using inventory sensors in your smart home skill.

What Can You Connect to Dash Replenishment?

You can connect any device that uses a consumable to Dash, such as printers (ink), thermostats (air filters), toothbrushes (toothbrush heads), washing machines (detergent), dishwashers (detergent), and smart locks (batteries). You can also connect devices that need replacement parts, such as vacuum cleaners (dust bags, brushes), and refrigerators (water filters). You specify the right consumables or replacement parts for your device.
