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—a goal to power new, unique, and amazing experiences for you and your troop all year long! 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 something even bigger—something thousands of awesome girls (around the country!) just like you are part of too? That’s right. When you participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, you’re part of the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program for girls in the world—and that’s kind of a huge deal! 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

About Digital Cookie

Digital Cookie is a groundbreaking addition to the Girl Scout Cookie Program that creates a fun, safe, interactive space for girls to sell cookies and develop the five skills of the traditional Girl Scout Cookie Program - goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics – while also learning about emarketing, online commerce, website maintenance, digital order taking and shipping. These are vital activities for modern business and modern life!

Digital Cookie complements and strengthens both traditional door-to-door sales and booth sales by adding and teaching a new layer of skills. With Digital Cookie, Girl Scouts can invite customers via email to buy Girl Scout Cookies through their online cookie business. Girls can also take in-person orders using a unique mobile app newly enhanced to allow for credit card processing and direct shipping.

Find out more about the Digital Cookie program, including shipping and handling information, in our Digital Cookie Q&A document.

Digital Cookie Safety

Ensuring the health and safety of our girls is a top priority in Girl Scouting. Girls and adults must be safety conscious, and adults must be trained to ensure proper supervision, prevention of accidents and incidents and maintenance of program resources. Learn more about the safety in Digital Cookie through the following pledge and terms and conditions:

Digital Cookie Girl Pledge

Digital Cookie Volunteer Terms and Conditions

Safety requirements and regulations for Digital Cookie are in line with the classic cookie program. For example, a parent, guardian, caregiver or buddy (depending on the age of the Girl Scout) must be with the girl when she’s delivering cookies. Girls sending out product emails or announcements online should sign with their first names only and their council name. Personal emails or street addresses of girls should never be given.

Girls not participating in Digital Cookie may call and send email messages to alert friends and family to product sales and may accept customer commitments via email or telephone. Girls who are 13 years of age or older may use social networking sites to market product, but must follow council and GSUSA guidelines.
