 How to Shop Amazon Smile on Mobile

One of the drawbacks to AmazonSmile, is you have to make your purchases through the AmazonSmile site. Purchases through the regular Amazon site and their mobile site won’t give a donation. Fortunately, you have three options!

  1. If you regularly shop Amazon through your mobile browser, simply navigate to amazon.cominstead and you’re set! It will be a very similar experience to what you are used to.
  1. If you regularly shop Amazon through the Amazon app you could add items to your cart via the app but finish the checkout process on your browser. (Just make sure you are at smile.amazon.com)

 

  1. Or you could take these steps on your Apple device:
    • Visit smile.amazon.com in Safari.
