I have the Amazon link bookmarked on my Toolbar. I have found that to be the easiest way to clink on the link, because it's automatic. Everytime I go to Amazon, I use my toolbar link, so it's guaranteed to count towards SoSH.

Yep! Been my bookmark in my toolbar for years. So long that I forgot I even have it there.

Does it work on the mobile Amazon app? I buy 90% of my stuff on my phone but can make an effort it will help.
Unfortunately I don’t think that it does.

With that said, we appreciate all the effort and it sincerely makes my job much much easier. Not having to worry all that much about paying hosting, app, file storages, etc fees is amazing.

I don't want to say for sure that it works, but I inadvertently clicked on one of my own links, then ordered something from the iPhone app that same night. The sale did show up on my account.

Adds an extra step, but I️ usually add all items to my shopping cart on the app because it’s much easier for shopping on a phone, then just load the website on a mobile browser using the link to hit “checkout.” Happy to take a few extra seconds to make sure my purchases support SoSH.

Does this work with Amazon Smile? I replaced www with smile in Nip's link and it looks like it works, but I have nothing to order at the moment.

I do almost all of my, pretty high volume (~$3-7k/yr), Amazon shopping on the app and always forget we have this referral. Is there a way to pin something on mobile? Maybe make it part of the mobile header which is just a SOSH logo with a ton of extra space around it.

Whether I’m using the app or the mobile web (for V&N GT reading), I’m on desktop SOSH for probably <1% of my time spent here. I wonder how many newer members (last 5 or so years where mobile browsing has really taken off) even know about the link because of this.

Really nice trick from AGJ! That should help me put some money in our coffers while keeping the friction low on my end.

One of my issues with the SOSH link has been that my shopping cart is really just where I stash things I need/want. Wantlists aren’t great for my brain/organizational type so I just add to cart and “save for later”. Every pay period I purchase the most pressing things by moving them into the “active” part of the cart and checking out. This is really easy to manage on the Amazon app and I can’t change that part of my workflow because it really works for me.

As of a few years ago at least, it does not. Nip will have to update if that's changed but he confirmed it a while back.
