Digital Cookie 3.0!
The Cookie Program’s Digital Cookie platform is returning for the 3rd year and promises to continue to enhance Girl Scouts’ experience with the Cookie Program.
The Digital Cookie platform allows today’s girls–digital natives–to build skills they’ll need to be leaders in
today’s high-tech world.
For girls/families, getting started with the
Digital Cookie platform is as easy as 1,2,3,4!
*Please check your junk/SPAM folder in case it got delivered there. If a family did not receive the registration email, they can use this form to request their girl be registered for this year’s Digital Cookie Platform. Please allow 72 hours for the girl to be registered and the welcome email to be sent.
- 1. Register for the Digital Cookie Program: Parents/guardians should be on the lookout for the Digital Cookie registration email
after December 19, 2016. The email will come from firstname.lastname@example.org. *
- 2. Set up the Girl Scouts’ site: In just a few minutes, girls can set up a sales goal, share her cookie story and upload a fun picture or video. The site is then ready to be reviewed and
- 3. Invite customers: Girls can import customer contact information from an email address book or spreadsheet. If a Girl Scout participated in Digital Cookie last year, her customer information from last year will have rolled over to this year’s program. Girls can send ready-to-use emails inviting customers to support her and the troop. Families and girls ages 13 and older may share the link to their site with family and friends via social media.
- 4. Track your goal: Girls and parents/guardians can track the number of boxes sold and orders placed as well as sales by delivery type and cookie variety. Offline sales can also be entered so girls can see their total progress!
For troop volunteers, the Digital Cookie platform
provides a way to see how their Girl Scouts are
using the platform so they can best support them and their families
in the Cookie Program. See more about Troop Dashboard highlights on page
15 of the Cookie Program Troop Guide.

Online Tools for Volunteers
Electronic Payments for the Girl Scout Cookie Program
This year, we will be using electronic payments (ACH) for the 2017 Girl Scout Cookie Program. This means less paperwork for Troop/Group Cookie Managers and Leaders, and more accurate payments! Make sure you read these FAQs before you get started, then have one authorized signer on a troop or service unit bank account complete the Electronic Payment Authorization Form. You can also see the Terms of Agreement here.
If you have any questions about electronic payments, please contact Sunny Johnson on the Finance Team at email@example.com or (800) 922-2770 ext. 3225.
