*Please try to arrive to delivery site as close to your time as possible.
*Avoid bringing other children for safety of everyone
*Must bring another adult as the "counter" for the cookies
*Once your vehicle has been loaded and you have signed for your cookies, you are responsible for them. Please note discrepancies BEFORE signing & leaving
Planned Orders
*Troops in the West & Central Regions are REQUIRED to enter a "Planned Order" into SNAP by 10 am the day prior to delivery to specific cupboard.

*Troops in East Region are REQUIRED to enter a "Planned Order" into SNAP by midnight 48 hours prior to delivery to specific cupboard.

If a troop attempts to pick up cookies without prior "planned order", they will be turned away.

***Please remember that the volunteers that are distributing cookies at the cupboards have other responsibilities just like everyone else. Please be mindful and respectful of their time. Please refer to cookie guide for cupboard times***

***New this year! A “Wheely” Good Idea!***
A Walkabout is when a troop or individual girl creates a Girl Scout Cookie Mobile by decorating a wagon, sled, or any creative mobile unit that can be easily pushed or pulled and then taking their cookie sales on the road. Go door-to-door in your neighborhood selling cookies and have actual cookie boxes in hand. This does not include motorized vehicles and is not a cookie booth. They must take place during daylight hours only and remember to have an adult with you at all times. Walkabout patches are available at all GSDSW shops.

Can I have a rolling sale/Walkabout/Caravan in a shopping center, park or other public area?
No. In order to maintain good relationships with property managers, stores, and to be fair, only booth sales are allowed in non-residential areas.
Can we do a rolling sale/Walkabout/Caravan as a Troop at one of our meetings?
Yes! What a fun outing for your Troop and a great way to help girls reach their goals!

Credit Cards
Why Credit Cards?
The move to a cashless society has been a hot trend since 2005. According to a March 2010 report by Generator Research, the worldwide market for mobile payments will grow to $633.4 billion by 2014, up from $68.7 billion in 2009. The same report predicts mobile payment users will grow 600% to 490 million by 2014. This trend is here to stay! For consumers, the main benefit of mobile payments is convenience. Consumers also tend to buy more on credit cards. Allowing consumers the option to pay with credit cards will help grow your Girl Scout cookie sale. And today, accepting credit cards from a mobile phone is a simple process.

Factors to Consider When Evaluating Vendors:

Transaction Features
Payment Security
Hardware & Compatibility
Troop would be responsible for fees

Bottom Line
Processing mobile payments is easy and will increasingly become the way consumers expect to manage transactions. Converting mobile phones into payment devices can offer convenience to consumers, streamline processes for girls and volunteers and grow your sale revenue.
