The Dot is currently only available to Amazon Prime members and you must order by speaking to your Echo device. You must have enabled "Voice Purchasing" in the Alexa app and have set your 1-click payment options before you can place your order. (Click here for instructions on how to do that.)
I ordered the Echo Dot and recorded the exchange so you can see how simple and quick it is. In under a minute, the order was placed.
