About Amazon Smile

How to generate AmazonSmile donations

Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. Millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations to charities by Amazon. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for smile.amazon.co.uk donation” on their product detail pages. Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible.

Remember, only purchases made at smile.amazon.co.uk, (not www.amazon.co.uk) generate AmazonSmile donations.

AmazonSmile donation totals

After you place a qualifying smile.amazon.co.uk order, it may take several days for the amount “you have generated” to update. Donation amounts will be updated several days after your order ships and donations resulting from pre-ordered items will take longer to update. The amount “you have generated” is based on all of your previous eligible smile.amazon.co.uk orders even if you have supported a different AmazonSmile charity or charities in the past.

Donations are issued to registered charities quarterly via electronic bank account deposit. The most recent donations were sent in February 2020. All donation amounts listed are inclusive of donations since the beginning of the AmazonSmile programme: November, 2017.
