    Here are the FAQs from Amazon:

    What does the unique link do?
    When customers click on the Chicago ACS' 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 American Chemical Society.

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

    Do my supporters have to click on the American Chemical Society's AmazonSmile link every time they shop?
    No. Once customers select your organization, it will receive 0.5% of the price of all their eligible smile.amazon.com purchases, regardless of whether they use the unique AmazonSmile link to return to the site. However, we recommend that supporters bookmark and use the 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 customers that have already selected an organization see when they click on the Chicago Section's unique link?
    If someone is already supporting the Chicago Seciton ACS 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 American Chemical Society. If someone supporting a different organization clicks on the Chicago Section's link, they are asked if they'd like to switch to support your organization.

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