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
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
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.
