AmazonSmile Setup Guide for Backup

Here’s how AmazonSmile works: each time a customer shops at smile.amazon.co.uk Amazon donates a 0.5% of the net purchase price of the eligible products. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but it all adds up and in the first four months, in the US alone, Amazon donated $69 million. And there’s no additional cost or charge to either customers or charities.
