Soundabout is a recognised partner for the Amazon Smile programme which donates a percentage of every eligible sale to charities.
We have received around £100 from the scheme so far and it would be wonderful if we could increase this amount and see regular contributions coming from Amazon. It’s so easy to set up and every eligible sale sees some income come to us at this difficult time.
Millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations to charities by Amazon. You will see these marked “Eligible for smile.amazon.co.uk” on their product detail pages.
With so many of us shopping from home at the moment there’s never been a better time to register for this wonderful charitable service!
So what is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, prices, and shopping features as on amazon.co.uk. The difference is that when customers shop through the URL smile.amazon.co.uk, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of eligible purchases to the charitable organisations selected by customers.
How does AmazonSmile work?
In order to browse or shop through AmazonSmile, customers must first select a charitable organisation. Customers can type ‘Soundabout’ into the search box and select us – it’s as simple as that!
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 of 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 Amazon charge any administrative fees or take any deduction from the donation amount?
No. Charities must enrol to receive donations and there is no charge to participate and Amazon do not deduct any fees from the donation amount.
