The Digital Cookie® platform helps girls superpower their cookie
sales as they go beyond the booth with mobile and online channels.
That’s right. The platform is a fun, educational tool that helps girls
run and manage their Girl Scout Cookie business online.
On Monday, January 6, 2020, registered Girl Scouts
will receive a Digital Order Card invitation email to set up and
publish their very own cookie sales site. Once the site is set up and
approved by the parent/guardian she may begin sending emails to her customers.
From January 6, 2020 - February 6, 2020, the only option
customers will have is “Shipped Orders”. Typically, customers who
purchase shipped cookies are customers that are out of the local area
of the Girl Scout.
From February 7, 2020 - March 20, 2020, the Girl Scout will
have the option to email their customers “Shipped Orders” and “Girl
Delivered” orders. With Girl Delivered orders, the Girl Scout actually
delivers the cookie to her customers in person. All Digital Cookie
sales are paid via credit card.

With a fun, robust, hands-on interface, the Digital Cookie
platform is an amazing learning experience for every girl. Through
