About Digital Cookie

Digital Cookie is a fun, easy, and educational tool that helps girls run and manage their Girl Scout Cookie business online.

Through Digital Cookie, a girl can:

  • share her cookie story
  • earn rewards
  • access Cookie Business badges online
  • track customer info, orders, and data
  • send cool, ready-to-use marketing emails
  • play games, watch videos, enjoy printable activities, and take fun quizzes
  • use the smart goal-setting calculator
  • make it easy for friends and family near and far to get their favorite Girl Scout Cookies

Parents: Watch for your registration email in late December to get started. You can start setting up your girl's site right away, so she'll be ready to go when sales start in January! 

  • Registration emails are specific to each girl and cannot be shared with others. 
  • The email will be sent to the email address identified in your membership profile. 
  • The email will come from “Girl Scout Cookie Program” (email@email.girlscouts.org).

Be sure to check your junk/spam/promotions inbox so your Girl Scout doesn’t miss out on all the fun! If you do not receive an invitation email by Jan. 1, go to digitalcookie.girlscouts.org and click the “Forgot password/Need a registration” email link. You can also visit our Digital Cookie-Getting Started page for helpful links and tips to get your girl started with Digital Cookie. 

Digital Cookie Girl Delivery Option
Customers can pay for their cookies with a credit card through Digital Cookie and have your Girl Scout deliver the cookies to their door. Don’t worry—as a parent, you’ll need to approve these orders for safety and practicality reasons. Ask your troop leader for more information. Girls can continue to take girl delivery orders until March 12, 2021

New! Girl Delivery cookies purchased through Digital Cookie count toward Digital Cookie rewards. 

Parents receive an email from email@email.girlscouts.org with the subject “You have a Digital Cookie in-person delivery approval request!” letting the parent know their Girl Scout has received an order for delivery. The parent must approve this order within 10 days or risk losing the sale.

Digital Cookie Girl Delivery orders will automatically populate on your digital order card in eBudde—this means you won’t have to manually add them to your Girl Scout’s initial order card!

There's so much more to Girl Scout Cookies than what’s in the box—there’s the magic that is you!

When you sell Girl Scout Cookies, you're doing more than helping your customers stock up on delicious treats (and having lots of fun). You have a goal in mind: to power life-changing programs, experiences, and learning for yourself and your troop all year long. Because no matter what obstacles may come your way, we know that you’ll face them with resiliency and creativity—it’s the Girl Scout way!

When you participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, you’re part of something even bigger than you, your troop, and all the amazing girls nationwide that sell too; you’re part of the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world! Having the opportunity to run your very own cookie business gives you skills essential for success today and in the future.

   Goal Setting

   Decision Making

   Money Management 

   People Skills

   Business Ethics 

You even get to bring meaningful moments of joy to all your customers with every box of delicious treats you sell! How special is that? Very—especially in challenging times like these.
