Understanding Amazon Smile: Giving Back Made Easy
Amazon Smile is a remarkable service provided by Amazon that allows you to support charitable organizations through your everyday purchases. With Amazon Smile, a percentage (0.5%) of your eligible purchases is donated to the charity you designate. While it may seem like a small amount, over time, these contributions can accumulate and create a significant impact, especially for local charities and religious organizations.
Enabling Amazon Smile on Your iPhone
If you’re an iPhone user and prefer shopping through the Amazon app, we’ve got you covered. Activating Amazon Smile on your iPhone is a simple process that can be completed in just a few steps.
- Ensure that you have the latest version of the Amazon app installed on your iPhone. If not, head to the App Store and update it to the most recent version.
- Launch the Amazon app and sign in using your Amazon account credentials.
- Locate the Options button, usually found at the lower right corner of the app interface. This button is represented by three horizontal lines stacked on top of each other, often referred to as the “hamburger menu.”

Utilizing Amazon Smile on Your Amazon App
Congratulations! With Amazon Smile now enabled on your iPhone, you’re on your way to effortlessly supporting your chosen charity with every purchase you make on Amazon. Here’s how you can confirm that Amazon Smile is active and working on your app:
- Proceed with your Amazon shopping as usual. Add items to your cart, review your order, and proceed to checkout.

The Importance of Regular Registration Renewal
While using Amazon Smile on your iPhone app is incredibly convenient, it’s essential to be aware of a crucial requirement.

The process is quick and simple, following the same steps outlined above to re-enable Amazon Smile on the mobile app.
Why does Amazon impose this renewal process? By asking users to periodically renew their registration, Amazon ensures that the Smile platform remains active for individuals who genuinely wish to support their chosen charity.
