How to Enable Voice Purchasing on Alexa

This process has been defined by Amazon and is the same for all voice apps offering "in-skill purchases" and for ordering products through Amazon. Any purchase you make through Alexa will be managed through the Amazon account linked to your Alexa device.
For more details on voice purchasing through Amazon Alexa, please refer to the Amazon documentation.
Please turn on voice purchasing in the Alexa app on your phone:
1. At the bottom right, tap "More".
2. Tap "Settings".
3. Tap "Account Settings".
4. Tap "Voice Purchasing".
5. Tap the slide switch for Voice Purchasing.
6. Optional security: Tap "Purchasing Confirmation" to add a voice code to confirm your purchases with Amazon.
Note: If you set up a PIN (voice code), you will need to remember it to successfully purchase coins at Storyteller Cafe.
