AmazonSmile Org Central



Did you know that East Texas Genealogical Society has a unique AmazonSmile link that makes it easier for people to find and support our organization?

What is the organization's unique link?

What does the unique link do?
When someone clicks on this organization's unique link, they skip the process to search for a charity to support among over 1 million eligible charities. Instead, they're taken to smile.amazon.com and are automatically asked if they want to support East Texas Genealogical Society.

Can I just tell individuals to search for the organization at smile.amazon.com?
Yes. However, that makes it harder for the supporters to find and select this organization. There are over 1 million eligible charities, and customers may end up picking a different organization during the selection process. Sharing this organizational link increases the likelihood that they will select your organization before they start shopping.

Do they have to click on the organizations AmazonSmile link every time they shop?
No. Once they select your organization, you will receive 0.5% of the price of all their eligible smile.amazon.com purchases, regardless of whether they use your unique AmazonSmile link to return to the site. However, we recommend that the supporters bookmark the link and use they link so they don't accidentally shop at www.amazon.com instead of smile.amazon.com. Only purchases made at smile.amazon.com are eligible for donations.

What do those that have already selected a charity see when they click on my organization's unique link?
If someone is already supporting your organization and they click on your unique link, they will simply be taken to smile.amazon.com so they can start shopping. They do not have to re-select your charity. If someone supporting a different charity clicks on your charity link, they are asked if they'd like to switch to support your organization.

How can I share my organizations unique AmazonSmile link with supporters?
Share your unique link on your website, in email, and on social media.

Where can I find my unique link if I forget it in the future?
You can find the organizations unique link on the Marketing Tools page at org.amazon.com. You'll also find other helpful marketing tools including an online banner and social media tools.

If you have any questions about the organization's unique AmazonSmile link, please contact us. Thank you.
