Have you ever wished you had your own personal assistant to take care of time-draining everyday tasks like paying your bills, tracking down deliveries, and ordering lunch? 

With the combined power of Alexa and Amazon Pay, you’ve got your own entourage. 

Now you can use your voice to pay for everything from gas and pizza to your utility bills, using the same payment method that’s already securely stored in your Amazon account. And when you shop on any Alexa-enabled device, all you have to do is say it to pay it. That means no more wasted time inputting billing, shipping, or account information. With Alexa and Amazon Pay, checkout is fast, easy, and safe.

Getting started is as simple as downloading the Alexa app on your phone, which will also allow you to set up any Alexa-enabled device in a few easy steps. And if you have an Amazon account, you already have Amazon Pay

Here are just a few of the ways you can harness the power of Alexa and Amazon Pay to make shopping, paying, ordering, managing bills, and even donating to charity easier — with just a few simple words. It’s a little bit like having your own genie. Your wish is our command.

Yes, that easy. Pull up to any Exxon or Mobil station across the United States and use the Alexa app on your phone, in your vehicle, or through an Alexa-enabled mobile device like Echo Buds. No more dirty keypads at the pump. No more swiping cards and entering your ZIP code. The touch-free, voice-powered payments happen inside your car, securely, with absolutely zero hassle. Just say “Alexa, pay for gas,” activate the pump, and be on your way — you’ve got places to be! See how painless it is to pay for gas the smart way

“Alexa, pay my electric bill.” 

With Bill Planner, you can monitor and pay your utility bills with your voice. You can also view upcoming bills, compare your balance with previous bills, and set up notifications so you never miss a due date. To connect Alexa to your electric, water, gas, or sewage accounts, just say, “Alexa, link my utility bill,” and select your utility provider, or search for it at the biller search site

“Alexa, I want to make a donation.” 

That’s all it takes to make a difference. Donate to the charity of your choice with any Alexa-enabled device, using the payment method already securely linked to your Amazon account. To give, simply say “Alexa, make a donation,” then say the name of the charity you’d like to support. It feels great. And there are currently more than 380 participating charities ready for you to speak their name, including the ASPCA, the Red Cross, the American Cancer Society, and St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

Waiting for a package? Have Alexa alert you when your Amazon Pay order is on its way, out for delivery, or at your door. When you have a new notification, your Echo device will display a yellow ring or an on-screen banner, indicating there’s been an update to your order status. All you have to do is enable notifications. Here are some of our favorite Amazon Pay merchants offering delivery notifications on Alexa.
