Nope! Amazon smile is a donation made from Amazon of 0.05% to your charity of choice.
Gaingive donates up to 8% from Amazon purchases instead of half a percent. This is because Amazon pays us for a service, it is not a donation directly from them. Instead, Gaingive is the donating party!
Amazon is the only store on Gaingive that does not allow for transparent tracking of donations. If you have made a purchases on Amazon through Gaingive, the transaction will not display like it does with other stores. The good news is that free donations will still be made to ministries in need on Gaingive through Amazon purchases!

Each retailer has it’s own processes and as such, donations can be added at different times.
For most, donations will be added on as ‘pending’ the day that the purchase is made. However, most Retailers will not make the actual payout until after their return policy terms have passed, this means that when the donation is added, it will be confirmed so no risk of it being reversed. On average it takes about 30 days for this to take place.
The ones to be most aware of are Travel, Insurance and Utility donations which can take much longer (but are well worth the wait) these can take 90 days after purchase, or for travel 30 days after your trip.
Again, when a donation is added to your account, it will be classed as pending until it is confirmed by the retailer (this can take a further 120 days to happen and longer for those Travel, Insurance and Utility donations) but once it has been confirmed, it will be available for withdrawl.
Once your order is completed, we track your transaction within 72 hours and add the donation to your gaingive account & send you an email.
With free fundraising for all, we are creating the giving layer of the internet: a space where individuals, teams, organizations, and nonprofits can champion causes that matter and raise free money to make a lasting difference.
