Our non-profit ministry, Miqlat, is now listed on AmazonSmile — Amazon’s service to help customers send part of their purchase costs on Amazon to the non-profit of their choice. Here are the details:
Miqlat has a unique AmazonSmile link that makes it easier for people to find. Here is the link for Miqlat.
What does the unique link do?
When customers click on the 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 Miqlat.
Can supporters still search for Miqlat at smile.amazon.com?
Yes. However, that’s not as easy or convenient. There are over 1 million eligible charities, and customers may end up picking a different organization during the selection process. Saving the link for Miqlat increases the likelihood that customers will select the right charity before they start shopping.
Do Miqlat supporters have to click on my charity’s AmazonSmile link every time they shop?
No. Once customers select your organization, Miqlat receives 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, Amazon recommends that supporters bookmark and use the Miqlat link so they don’t accidentally shop at amazon.com instead of smile.amazon.com. Only purchases made at smile.amazon.com are eligible for donations.
What do customers that have already selected a charity see when they click on my organization’s unique link?
If someone is already supporting Miqlat and they click on its unique link, they will simply be taken to smile.amazon.com so they can start shopping. They do not have to re-select the 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.
Thanks for helping support the ministry of Miqlat!
