There are lots of options for girls to engage with cookie sales! We
know safety is top of mind, so we’ve created sales channels, tips, and
kits to help her reach her goal whether that’s from her computer
screen or socially distanced. We will update you in real time with
which ways to sell are allowed given the safety guidelines in place at
Girls are welcome, with supervision, to go door-to-door as part of
their selling strategy. We recommend wearing a mask, dressing for the
weather, and having leave-behind materials available. Girls can leave
a doorhanger or business card, or ask customers to scan a QR code for
contactless payment and delivery. Remember, with the girl’s sales link
(QR code), neighbors can scan and pay online for porch drop-off or
The Cookie Program is a girl-led program, but we also know that
family workplaces are great for helping girls reach their goals. To
keep it girl-led, girls should write a personal statement that can be
left with the order card or send co-workers an email. The personal
statement gives the customer the chance to learn more about what their
cookie purchase is going towards. Encourage girls to write a thank you
note or help in delivering cookies. Working from home? Girls can draft
an email with their link for direct ship or porch drop-off and
parents/guardians can send it to their coworkers if company policy allows.
BUSINESS-TO-BUSINESS (B2B) SALES
Businesses look for creative ways to engage/thank customers. Who
wouldn’t like a package of Girl Scout Cookies? Reach out to car
dealerships, real estate agents, and hotels are great examples of
places that may want to offer cookies as a thank you.
Through the girl’s sales link or QR code, customers can choose the
Direct Ship option* to have cookies delivered right to their
door—a great option for friends and family who don’t live nearby but
still want to support their favorite Girl Scout.
Girls may email their link or share on social media sites. Please

COOKIE FINDER SALES LINK
New this year! Starting
on February 18, each troop’s sales link will be automatically added to
the National Girl Scout Cookie Finder. Customers who use the Cookie
Finder will simply enter in their zip code to view both in-person
booths and troop sales links. If the customer would like to purchase
from the troop sales link, they would place the order and would
receive the cookies via Smart Cookies Direct Ship. At the end of the
sale, your troop will be credited for all sales generated from this
link. These cookies
should be distributed to girls.
Cookie Booths are any sales that girls participate in as a
group. This can be in public businesses, on private property, or
virtually. They are either arranged by GSKSMO (council-secured) or by
the troop (troop-secured). Cookie booths are a great way for your
girls to learn how to work and set goals together.
If you plan to hold a cookie booth, make sure to take our cookie
booth training in gsLearn and check out the Cookie Booth section of this page.
