How does AmazonSmile work?
In order to browse or shop through AmazonSmile, customers must first select a charitable organisation. Once they have chosen their charity they can shop the site as they normally would. Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of the customer's eligible purchases. Only purchases made through smile.amazon.co.uk are eligible to generate donations.
Is there any cost to charitable organisations or to customers?
No. There is no cost to charitable organisations or to AmazonSmile customers. The shopping experience is identical to amazon.co.uk with the added benefit that Amazon will donate to the charitable organisations selected by customers.
Do you charge any administrative fees or take any deduction from the donation amount?
No. Charities must enrol to receive donations and have a valid bank account to which we can route donations, but there is no charge to participate and we do not deduct any fees from the donation amount.
