Using Alexa

Where there are {order-status} this means that you replace it with the relevant Order Status ‘Pending’, ‘Failed’, ‘Cancelled’, ‘Refunded’, ‘Processing’, ‘Dispatched’ or ‘Completed’. If you use custom Order Statuses on your EKM online shop, Alexa will be able to recognise these too.

Count orders by status

Commands:

  • Alexa, ask my EKM shop how many {order-status} orders have I had?
  • Alexa, ask my EKM shop how many {order-status} do I have?
  • Alexa, ask my EKM shop how many {order-status} I have?
  • Alexa, ask my EKM shop how many orders do I have with a status of {order-status}?
  • Alexa, ask my EKM shop how many orders I have with a status of {order-status}?
  • Alexa, ask my EKM shop to count {order-status} orders?
  • Alexa, ask my EKM shop how many {order-status} have I got? 

Count orders by date

Examples of a date are:

  1. Today
  2. Yesterday
  3. This week
  4. Last week
  5. This year
  6. Last weekend
  7. This decade

Commands:

Alexa, ask my EKM shop have I had any orders {date}?
Alexa, ask my EKM shop how many orders I have had {date}?
Alexa, ask my EKM shop how many orders I've had {date}?
Alexa, ask my EKM shop how many orders {date} I've had?

At the moment, you can only ask Alexa two questions about the status of your EKM online shop. However, if you would like to see more questions added to this skill by our Development Team, please make a post on the EKM Suggestions board. Equally, if you are asking Alexa a question about your shop and she does not understand you, please let us know so our Developers can improve this functionality - we’d love to hear your feedback!
