What is Amazon Smile?

How does AmazonSmile work?
When first visiting, customers are prompted to select a charitable organisation. Amazon will give 0.5 per cent of the net purchase price (excluding VAT and other shipping fees) of eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organisations selected by our customers.

How does my organisation receive the donations?
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. To account for product returns, we may reduce the amount of donations in a given calendar quarter and add it to the subsequent quarter, subject to any reduction due to returns from prior quarters. See the AmazonSmile Participation Agreement for more details.
