Dash Replenishment - Create a Device

The DRS Self-Service Portal will help you create and manage your DRS-connected devices. The device wizard simplifies the provisioning process for DRS and will guide you through creating your device model(s) and configuring your product ASIN lists so that you can begin testing and integrating with Amazon Dash Replenishment Service.

Create a new device

There are three steps required in this process. You will first create a new device, then customize it and finally you will take the replenishmentId for each slot to use in your lambda function.

Start by heading to the DRS Self-Service Portal (Opens in a new Tab) and click on Begin if you don't have a device in the console yet.

Step 1. Set up the DRS-enabled device

  1. Click on Create a device

  2. Choose a device name and a model ID. The device name will be used to identify your new device in the DRS Self-Service Portal. You will later be able to define a customer-facing name in the localization screen.

  3. You are now able to customize customer-facing information.

Step 2. Customize your device

Click on My Devices, then click on the device you have just created. You will be taken to the device customization page.

Customize a generic device

For any device that you create, you can customize the following properties:

  • Device Slots: A slot is a consumable that your device can replenish. For a printer, each slot will represent the toner or ink color, so "Slot 01" slot name could be "Black ink", "Slot 02" could be "Magenta ink" and so on. For a washing machine "Slot 01" could represent the detergent and another slot could represent the softener. Your device must be able to check the levels of each slot and re-order the associated consumables individually, when required.
  • Marketplace: where your device will be sold. Each marketplace will need to be localized and certified.
  • Device Localization: This device name will appear in the customer's Amazon account.
  • ASIN list: the list of products each slot will contain. Your Amazon point of contact will provide this.
  • Device image: this image will appear in the customer's Amazon account.
Customize a printer

In the previous step we have created a new device. By default, the device will have one slot but for a printer we will need at least 4, one for each ink color.

  1. Device image: Let's start by uploading an image of our printer. Please choose a BMP, JPG, PNG or GIF image with a maximum size of 1MB and a white or transparent background.
  2. Device slots: We can now add all the required slots. Click on the pencil icon next to "Device Slots".

  3. Slot name: Customize each slot with an ID that you will be using later. In our example, we will use the slot color as our ID
    Press Save to continue.
  4. Device name localization: You should now change the customer-facing name for your device. By default, it will have the same name as the one you chose for developer portal but it can be different. This name will appear in the customer's Amazon account.
    You will have to repeat this step in each marketplace you decide to sell your device in.
  5. Slot localization: The slot name is also customer-facing. Click on Slot localization and update its name.

    You will have to repeat this step for each slot, in each marketplace. Once defined, the name will be displayed to the customer in the production selection page, like the following:

  6. ASIN List: This tab will allow you to modify the consumables your product offers to customers. By default, the DRS Self-Service Portal adds a placeholder ASIN (batteries) that you can use during the testing phase. Your Amazon Point of Contact will provide the list of ASINs to add to that tab.
  7. Marketplaces: if you are planning to launch your product in additional marketplaces, you can add more by clicking on Manage marketplaces. You will have to repeat steps 4 through 6 for any additional marketplace.
