Alexa - Allow User To Add Item To Amazon Basket/Cart. Help Needed

I’m building an Alexa skill for a client. So far we’ve added the following features to skill and they are successful:

1. Add items to user Todo List

2. Add items to user Shopping List

3. Get permission from user to use Amazon Pay.

We need to be able to give the user the option to add an item to their Amazon basket/cart from the client’s existing Amazon store. I’ve read all the posts/answers related to this issue on the developer forum and all of them were published last year.

The answers I’ve read seem to suggest we can’t add an item to a users Amazon basket/cart.

Is there an update on this for 2019? Can we do this with Amazon Pay or the Account Linking feature?

If not, is it technically possible if we build a custom back-end to work with the skill?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.
