What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile allows customers to purchase products whilst donating 0.5% of the net purchase price to your charitable organisation of choice – for no extra charge to you!
How does AmazonSmile work?
When first visiting smile.amazon.co.uk, you will be asked to select a charitable organisation. Amazon will give 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT and other shipping fees) of eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organisations selected. Only purchases made through smile.amazon.co.uk are eligible to generate donations.
Is there any cost to charitable organisations or to Amazon customers?

How does the organisation receive my donation?
Each quarter, AmazonSmile makes donations to eligible charitable organisations by electronic funds transfer. Donations will be transferred within 28 days after the end of the following calendar quarter.
