Amazon Smile

I gave this a try today, it took about  3 minutes.  To sign up and specify Japanese Gardening Organization as the selected charity I did the following:
1) Logged into amazon
2) Went to the smile sign up location
3) Searched for "Japanese Gardening Organization" and selected it.

So now I think I am signed up.  I thought I could do this after a purchase, but it seem like that is not the case.  Mostly because, I think after the steps above are done, credit only happens when starting the Amazon shopping from "smile.amazon.com".

Does anybody else have experience with this?  I saw the general about/instruction information here: https://smile.amazon.com/about/

Thanks.. Michael

Hi Michael..
-- a problem I encountered was that Amazon.com.. smile or not.. forces me to buy from Amazon .ca canada, and does not recognize my chosen charity, because it is not smile.amazon.ca..
being short on time I never followed up on where arguing with Amazon and the internet would lead...

I am signed up with it, but i still use the web links entry because it is 4 to 6% vs 0.5% for JGO.  Edzard, with the new website i am playing with amazon plugins that have the ability to serve many countries.  I will have to see about the intl. recognition of the nonprofit though.  Thanks

Likewise, I shop through Amazon.co.jp. Is there a set-up with them as we order substantial volume through them?
Would love to contribute. Can you advise how we might set up a link?
Thanks.

Andrew,
I don't quite recall the sign up process.  I think you just go here: http://smile.amazon.com/   And add your charity...  Searching for JGO.. A screen shot is attached below.
