Our relationship with Amazon is changing as of Monday the 10th February 2020. Legal requirements mean that we are unable to offer any incentive, rewards or donations for using our links to Amazon. However, we will promote Amazon as an affiliate partner and the income generated will enable us to continue the fantastic work we do.
Amazon's operating agreements for commercial partners explicitly prevent the community cashback model we previously operated and, in line with other similar schemes in the UK and internationally, this arrangement has come to an end. Amazon operates its own charity giving scheme AmazonSmile
and this is available for registered charities (including TheGivingMachine) here: <TheGivingMachine on AmazonSmile>
What does this mean for Givers and Causes?
Amazon shopping now generates income to continue our amazing work but we are unable to give it away.
Your shopping at the other 2,000+ retailers and engagement in promotions will continue to generate donations for the causes you love. We also plan to allocate a higher % of our advertising revenue back out as well.
TheGivingMachine is still the best online shopping platform that makes you feel good.
