"Steph" has already sold 34 boxes of cookies.  And we haven't even been selling for 2 full days.  This weekend we will be loading a wagon and walking the neighborhood.  Then, she can say she has actually sold some cookies.

A few years ago, we had to stop "selling" anything in our department.  We can email individuals but not allowed to email the department or sell outside of our office. 

AT the time, were were only a few of us with young kids in activities.  One has a daughter in girl scouts and mine are in sports.  I had sent out a pretty creative "wanted" sign for "twins selling candy.....they are armed with candy". haha.  People loved it and we sold our 2 boxes that day. 

A couple of days later, our department got an email saying we are no longer able to sell anything.

Yep.  Sales are digital!  I send you a link and purchases can be made.  They are sent directly to you.  Real cookies, digital ordering.  Great for family and friends that are far away.

We are allowed to put ours in common areas and people can sign up as they wish.  However, since there are so many girl scouts out there, I simply ask people if I may send them the link.  This way they don't feel pressured to buy right then, if they choose to do it, great.  If not, and they don't want to just say no, they have an out in saying they totally forgot.

It might not work in Canada.  I am surprised I have not heard of that around here.

We have digital cookie. The shipping cost is ridiculous. All out digital orders are Girl delivered.
