Both the affiliate and the customer's chosen AmazonSmile charity should then receive credit for the purchase.
It seems very confusing to me. What is the point of the "smile" URL? Why not just tell account holders that they can choose a charity if they so desire, and then shop normally? Why the extra hoop to jump through?
