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, there’s a work around.

  • If you regularly shop Amazon through your mobile browser, simply navigate to smile.amazon.com instead and you’re set! It will be a very similar experience to what you are used to.
  • 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) Or you could take these steps on your Apple device:

How to Use Amazon Smile on the App

Visit smile.amazon.com in Safari.

Next, hit the share button at the bottom middle of your screen.

Now click add to Home Screen. You have just created a shortcut to the Amazon Smile page to easily navigate here from the homepage.

Delete you Amazon app so you always shop with a smile.
