What’s AmazonSmile?

You shop. Amazon gives.

AmazonSmile has all the same brands, offers and items as Amazon, but with one very important difference: you can support us at no extra cost!

Amazon donates 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of eligible purchases to the charitable organisation of your choice. So, if you choose "3Rd Portchester Scout Group" as your charity, you’ll also helping young people in our Group to learn skills for life.

I have a problem and can not enable AmazonSmile in the Amazon App

It is not clear why it is not always available (works on my iPhone but not my iPad for example). You can still search for items and add them to your basket using the Amazon App, however please do not check out in the app (we won't receive the donation).

If you then visit in your web browser on any device (including your iPad) your items will still be in your basket and when your order is completed we will benefit from the donation through AmazonSmile.
