How can we improve Alexa Skill development services and tools?

money type

we need a type for money. so if i say, "i want to pay 4 dollars and 12 cents" the slot returns 4.12. currently i'm using two slots and a lot of utterances which is painful.

    So you add a custom slot type, then for the "values" you add $.03, $120.85, $23.99? There are not "samples" that I know of, or am I missing something?

    This apparently is implemented! Just add a custom slot type and for the samples add things like $.03, $120.85, $23.99... and alexa will understand dollar and cents user utterances and return a $XX.XX in value in your intent request.
