Ways to Sell Cookies

DIRECT COOKIE SALES

Girls have cookies in-hand to sell door-to-door to family, friends and neighbors. Girls sell cookies and collect money all in one transaction. Troops pre-order the cookies and distribute to each family. Families turn in money weekly to the Troop Cookie Coordinator.

  • February 15-March 22
    Cookie Sale dates
  • By March 8
    Opportunity to return unopened, clean cookie cases to your Troop if you don’t think you can sell them.
  • March 22
    Cookie sales end but if you have unsold cookies keep selling. It is your responsibility to turn in money for all the cookies in your possession.

ORDER TAKING COOKIE SALES

Girl Scouts use their Order Card to take pre-orders. When the cookies are available (March 8-10), Girl Scouts return to their customers to deliver the cookies and collect money at that time. Families then turn in the money to the troop. 

  • February 25-March 22
    Cookie sales begin and girls start taking orders with order cards.
  • Early March- date coming soon
    Submit the order to your troop co-leaders.
  • Mid March- date coming soon
    Families pick up your cookies from your troop and begin delivering to customers and collecting money.
  • March 22
    End of Cookie sale. All cookies should be delivered and money collected and submitted to the troop.

COOKIE BOOTHS

Booths allow Girl Scouts to sell directly to the general public in places such as grocery stores or sporting events. Booths are usually scheduled by a troop. At booth sales, girls work together to achieve troop and individual sales goals.

February 15-March 22
Cookie Booth Sales are held throughout cookie season.

Tips and Resources
Digital Cookie Sales

Girls can superpower their sales by opening an online store. Girls email eCards (provided by our cookie baker) to family and friends, inviting them to purchase cookies.

There are two ways customers can purchase cookies online:

  1. Direct Ship eCards
    Customers will pay for their cookies + shipping. Cookies will be delivered to their doorstep by mail.
  2. Girl Delivery eCards
    Customers place a promise order for cookies. Girls deliver the cookies to the customer in person and collect payment at that time.

HOW TO SET UP HER DIGITAL COOKIE STORE

  • Mid-January, look for an email from noreply@abcsmartcookies.com
    (may land in your junk folder)
  • Click the link in that email to begin. Complete the profile page, which includes selecting a username and password. 

    ->  Click submit to complete the registration.

  • Look for another email that confirms her account set-up.
    -> Save the email because it has the username and password which you’ll need each time you log in.
  • Log in to her account at abcsmartcookies.com and help her set up her dashboard and set a Cookie sales goal.
    -> Select the ‘eCard’ tab. Add contacts, then generate eCards to family and friends.
Badgerland Online Cookie Marketing Guidelines

View the Online Cookie Marketing Guide

Absolutely no online cookie transactions may occur other than ABC’s Smart Cookies Direct Ship site.

Girl Scout Cookies may not be advertised or sold on online auction or sales websites including eBay, Craigslist, community buy/sell/trade sites and Facebook (especially Marketplace, private sale groups, and public groups).

Girls 13 and older, with parental permission, may promote their Cookie Program on their personal social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, but all cookie sales are to be conducted in person other than ABC’s Smart Cookies Direct Ship website.

Parents can promote their daughter’s Cookie Program on their personal social sites but the Girl Scout must complete the sale. Example post: “My daughter is selling Girl Scout Cookies. Contact me if you are interested.” The parent would then serve as the conduit for interested family and friends with the Girl Scout completing the sale.

Badgerland defers to parents to make the best and safest online marketing choices for their child.
