Alexa (UK) voice ordering now live

Not sure when this happened or if I just missed it but it appears you can now order items from Amazon UK through Alexa.

I was just on the phone telling someone that they should get SmartThings to go with their Echo Dot and the next thing I know my Alexa wakes up and asks me if I want to order a SmartThings sensor.

ALEXA - NO was the reply.


I want to buy a Hamburger.

I think it’s been active since day one.

You can only buy certain Prime items though.

It only seems to work on items that i have previously ordered. Seems far too easy to order something.

Can it be switched off?
