Beginning February 1, using Smart Cookies, girls can create and send e-cards and share their social media links to friends and family. Customers can order cookies, pay online, and have cookies shipped directly to them from ABC Bakers (the Direct Ship option).
Troops can host virtual cookie booths to share girl links via livestream events, videos, and meetings.
Girls can collect orders with the paper order card.
Phase 2 includes all elements from phase 1. In addition to the options in phase 1, girls can now collect orders for girl delivery via virtual booth sales, online orders, or the paper order card.
When a customer chooses the girl delivery option, they place their order online and pay in advance. The girl or troop will set up a contactless delivery plan with the help of a caregiver. Girl delivery orders must be reported to the troop cookie coordinator so that a planned order can be entered into Smart Cookies to pick up cookies at a cupboard.
Troops start to pick up cookies at a cookie cupboard.
In this final phase, girls and troops can host virtual and contactless/in-person booth sales.
Girls can host lemonade stands.
Please read our guidelines for returning to in-person Girl Scout gatherings before participating in the 2022 Girl Scout Cookie Program. As the risks associated with the pandemic continue to change, we will modify these guidelines accordingly.
2023 important dates:
There is the tiered earning program for cookies. The more you sell, the more you earn! Right now, girls earn $.75 per package no matter how many packages they sell. However, proceeds will now be based on a troop’s average (total number of packages sold divided by the number of registered girls in your troop).
*Tier ranges are based on the Per Girl Average (PGA) of a troop, not based on individual girl sale totals.
Of course, we still will be providing $.07 a package to service units to support activities, provide girl opportunities, and fund community service and leadership projects!
