For Cookie Sellers

When you sell Girl Scout Cookies, you're doing more than just helping your customers stock up on delicious treats (and having lots of fun). You're doing it with a goal in mind. Whether that goal is a pizza party, a community service project, or your first overnight camping trip with your troop, you know how many boxes you need to sell to make it happen. 

But did you know that you're also part of a huge business, one that's run by girls just like you all over the country? In fact, you’re part of the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program for girls In the world. Being a Girl Scout Cookie professional gives you skills essential for success both now and later: 

   Goal Setting

   Decision Making

   Money Management 

   People Skills

   Business Ethics

IMPORTANT  COOKIE UPDATES! 

 

JANUARY 10, 2018 1:43 pm
The First Come First Serve Booth Opportunity (no limit) opened today at 10am. New opportunities have been added. Questions may arise regarding locations like Exton Square Mall and Montgomery Mall. Both of these locations are still on the approval stage. As soon as we receive written confirmation from the mall, we will communicate it via NewsBytes, TeamApp and Front Line Alerts.

JANUARY 10, 2018 1:30 pm
Girl Upload into Smart Cookies will begin today. Parents will begin receiving emails to register their girls in Smart Cookies. By doing so, the girls will be able to sell online (like they did previously via CocoDirect). Hotmail or other Microsoft email address users will most likely encounter issues with not receiving the emails. These individuals must add the "noreply@abcsmartcookies.com" email address to their safe sender list. Once they have done this, they need to wait until the next business day at 12pm when Product Program will automatically resend the email for them to complete registration.

The girl must be a registered Girl Scout under an active troop in MyGS for her to be imported and, therefore, receiving the registration email. Prior to creating a case assigned to the Product Program queue, please make sure that these requirements have been met.

FAQs

Q: How will my troop benefit from participating?

A: The cookie program provides important ingredients for leadership by helping girls develop five key skills; Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills, and Business Ethics. Girls are able to earn money towards fun and exciting girl-planned program activities, as well as contribute to their council’s ability to provide Girl Scouting in the community. Girls can also earn fun recognitions and patches, credit which can be used in the shop or for membership, or can even be used towards summer camp!

Q: What if I miss a deadline?

A: GSEP is unable to honor requests after deadlines have been passed. We appreciate your timely efforts and understanding.
