check_32 How It Works:

In the Fall Product Program, girls build their own avatar, or digital likeness, set goals and launch their very own website for customers to purchase from. She can email customers directly from the Fall Product program, asking for their support. Parents/caregivers can help her share her link via text and social media too!

Customers can order nut, candy and magazines to be shipped directly to them or nut and candy items to be delivered directly by a girl, without paying shipping.

Orders for girl delivery will be shipped directly to the Troop Fall Product Manager in mid-November along with the girls' rewards. Proceeds will be deposited into troop accounts by GSNETX in December provided the troop had a registered bank account on file by the conclusion of the Fall Product Program on October 25, 2021.

It's as simple as that. No need to collect and turn in money or orders to your troop.

  • Additional Troop Proceeds: Troops with 50%  or more of their girls participating in the fall product program who reach a per girl sales average (PGA) of $250 will earn an additional 2 cents per package in their troop’s 2021 Cookie Program! A girl is considered participating if she has at least one order with one item or more, purchased. 
    50% Participation Clarification: Troops which have an odd number of girls registered, can round down to the nearest whole number to qualify for the 50% participation requirement. For example, a troop has 11 girls registered, they must have 5 girls participating in order to reach the 50%.
    Tip: Calculate the per girl average (PGA) by taking the total sales of all girls and dividing that total by the number of girls selling. For example, ten (10) girls had sales totaling $3,000, which would mean they have a per girl average of $300.
