What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support a charity of your choice every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.co.uk, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as amazon.co.uk, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your selected charity.
How do I shop at AmazonSmile?
To do this, you can either shop through a browser on your computer or mobile device. To try this, simply click on the AmazonSmile image above or smile.amazon.co.uk link, select Joy for Humanity UK as your charity of choice, and do your shopping as normal.
You may also want to add a bookmark to smile.amazon.co.uk to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile.
How do I shop using the mobile App?
If you have an Android device you can now shop through the Amazon Shopping App by following these instructions on the Amazon website.
Currently, it is not possible to use AmazonSmile through the Amazon Shopping app on Apple devices. We will immediately update this page once the iOS App is released!
What should I then do if I have an iPhone?
Although the iOS mobile App isn’t available yet, the good news is that you can set up a shortcut of the Amazon Smile website which will give you an identical experience as the Amazon app. This is pretty easy and quick!
If you have the Amazon App installed, please delete it. To do this, tap and hold the app icon until it starts to jiggle. Tap the cross at the top left of the icon and confirm that you want to delete it. Don’t worry, this action will not delete your Amazon account or any of your settings.
Now load Safari (the iPhone internet browser) and go to smile.amazon.co.uk.
Then tap the ‘share’ button on the bottom of the screen.
Tap the ‘Add to Home Screen’ icon. Sometimes you might need to swipe to the left to see this option.
Once done, you will now have an Amazon Smile icon on your home screen which you can use almost the same way you use the Amazon App.
