How to activate AmazonSmile on your iPhone or Android

Step 1: Join AmazonSmile

If you aren’t an AmazonSmile member, sign up first at using a web browser. You’ll sign in with your Amazon information, and the site will walk you through the process for signup.

Amazon will ask you to choose your favorite charity. This is where you search for and choose “Chiquitins Cat Project”.

Step 2: Open the Amazon Shopping app on your phone

If you don’t have the Amazon app already, download it from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Step 3: Open Settings within the app

Open Settings by tapping the three horizontal lines at the top left of the app, and scroll down to select “Settings.”

Step 4: Click AmazonSmile

Step 5: Click the button for “Turn on AmazonSmile”

You’ll need to follow the setup process in order to be eligible to use AmazonSmile in the Amazon app. Note that Amazon requires you to turn on notifications to be able to use AmazonSmile on your phone.

Step 6: Make note of your renewal date

Amazon asks that you renew your AmazonSmile donation every six months. This is easy but required. When six months are up, you’ll have to choose your favorite charity again.

Step 7: Confirm that AmazonSmile is active before your next purchase

Look for AmazonSmile at the top of the app as you browse. You’ll also see your chosen charity on the confirmation screen. Amazon donates 0.5% to us for every purchase made when you use AmazonSmile. Thank you for considering Chiquitin’s Cat Project for AmazonSmile!
