Everyone here at Tripawds and the Tripawds Foundation is sincerely grateful for the generous ongoing support of community members shopping at Amazon. Thank you!

For anyone interested, below we provide details about the benefits of the Smile Program proceeds vs. commissions from purchases made via the Amazon Affiliate Links found throughout the Tripawds Blogs and discussion forums.

What is Amazon Smile?

“AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.” (Source: About Amazon Smile)

NOTE: The Tripawds Foundation participates in the AmazonSmile program as an approved 501c3 public charity.

The Tripawds Foundation receives a small percentage (not to exceed 0.5% per purchase) of sales made through the AmazonSmile program when shoppers select the Tripawds Foundation as their preferred charity.

What is the Amazon Associates program?

“The Amazon Associates program…help[s] website owners, Web developers, and Amazon sellers make money by advertising…products from Amazon.com and its subsidiaries… When website owners and bloggers who are Associates create links and customers click through those links and buy products from Amazon, they earn…can earn up to 10% in referral fees.” (Source: Amazon Associates)

NOTE: Tripawds operates an Amazon Associates account and often shares affiliate links for products found at amazon.com.

Amazon affiliate commissions range from 1% to 10% depending upon the product category purchased. (Source: Amazon Associates Fee Schedule)

Which Amazon links should I use to support Tripawds ?

Any support is greatly appreciated when you decide to shop Amazon and support your Tripawds community! Please participate in whichever program you prefer.

NOTE: Amazon Associates affiliate links (amazon.com) cannot be used in conjunction with AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) purchases.

Proceeds from Amazon Affiliate links are paid directly to Tripawds (.com) so support:

ANY QUESTIONS????   Ohhhh yeah!

First of all, very interesting how AmazonSmile only covers functions under the Fpundation banner.  Seems like they would cover ANY aspect of running a 501C Charity like Adminstration,  technical support T E C H N I C A L. S U P P O R T,  etc.!   

Just a curious statement…doesn need addressing.  Obviously you are conforming with whst it takes to obtain a 501C classification.

Back to QUESTIONS!.  I know we can find links to AmazonSmile theough products highlight here in the site.  Got it!

  1. How do we get to the Amazon Affiliate link to make purchase through that route?  If I want to buy a product here in the site, I click on and it takes me directly through AmazonSmile, right??
  2.   How do I make a purchase through Amazone Affiliate?  For example, say I want to buy a real computer (never gonna happen) through Amazon Affiliate.  How do I get there from here?

My questions make sense to me, but that doesn’t matter uness they make sense to you!way-cool  MAKE SENSEquestion

THANKS ADMIN GUY!!

Amen!  That was what I was so clear as mud trying to ask!  If more than one person sells an item,  but one of them is an affiliate that will donate,  how does one find that out.  Do you strictly have to follow links from Tripawds?

Sorry if this was not clear…

AmazonSmile has no authorization or control whatsoever over what specific “functions” they “cover” with the contributions from from purchases made through their program.

In the full interest of disclosure, we were merely trying to specify where those funds go.

To be Clear: AmazonSmile contributions are paid directly to the Tripawds Foundation . They (AmazonSmile) has  no jurisdiction over how those funds get spent. The list above “under the Fpundation banner” (if we are correct in understanding the concern) are services paid for specifically by the 501c3 Tripawds Foundation .

I know we can find links to AmazonSmile theough products highlight here in the site.

The only direct links to the AmazonSmile website are found in the Tripawds Foundation blog, and a just few mentions throughout these forums, like those in this specific forum topic.

How do we get to the Amazon Affiliate link to make purchase through that route? 

The vast majority of Amazon links found throughout the Tripawds Blogs and forums are affiliate links.

AmazonSmile does not provide affiliate links, so any sSmil links will point to smile.amazon.com while all others will direct you to amazon.com. These sites include identical product offerings, with one small difference – the small menu item that indicates what charity you support is only found on the AmazonSmile site. Pay attention to the URL in your web browser location bar and you will always know which site you are shpping.

When shopping, start your search for products from the Tripawds Amazon blog , and you will always be redirected to the Tripawds Associates product links.

If I want to buy a product here in the site, I click on and it takes me directly through AmazonSmile, right??

No. Unless you have set AmazonSmile as your preferred shopping preference.

How do I make a purchase through Amazone Affiliate? 

1. Click any Amazon link in the Tripawds (.com) blogs and forums

2. Ensure that you have not visited the smile.amazon website

3. To get technical, you can look for “tag=tripawds-20” in the URL of any Amazon product page you are viewing to confirm your purchase will help support Tripawds .

For example, say I want to buy a real computer

Can’t wait! big-grin

(never gonna happen) through Amazon Affiliate.  How do I get there from here?

Oh. sad

If not visiting a Tripawds Amazon Associates link, start by searching for any product from the Tripawds Amazon blog

My questions make sense to me, but that doesn’t matter uness they make sense to you!

We try.

PLEASE NOTE: Regardless of which method users use to support Tripawds , via AmazonSmile OR Associates links, your support is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

This is not how affiliate sales work.

All products available at amazon.com, from every different reseller, is available for purchase via AmazonSmile or from Associates links.

Do you strictly have to follow links from Tripawds?   

Yes. Or start your search from the Tripawds Amazon blog as described above.

You got that RIGHT! Thank you for the affiliate tutorial (definition).  Just unfamiliar territory.  Now I understand.  I was under the (incorrect) assumption that it was only specific vendors or products that support this organization.  I will not worry about surfing through Amazon to shop as long as I start from a link somewhere in Tripawds. Thanks again and have a good night! ( And what Sally said! ) 

Oh… and Samsung RULES!😆🙃😎

FYI…

The easiest way to confirm whether you are shopping AmazonSmile or Amazon.com is to check the website URL in your browser. These screenshots help identify both amazon.com and smile.amazon.com, which otherwise may appear identical.

smile.amazon.com
All purchases provide 0.5% sales commissions for the Tripawds Foundation .
Note website URL and menu indicating selected charity:

amazon.com
Tripawds associate links pay up to 10% commissions to Tripawds (.com).
Note website URL, no charity menu, and “tripawds-20” tag in affiliate link URLs.

Thank you all for your support! Whichever method you choose.

There are many other ways to Support Tripawds and the Tripawds Foundation!
