Girl Scouts to start selling cookies via the Internet, app and tablets
Girl Scouts of America announced Digital Cookie on Monday, a new digital platform that allows Girl Scouts to sell cookies through the Internet. Girl Scouts has always touted the cookie program as a way to lay the groundwork for good business and negotiation skills, and the digital program is modernizing those skills. So you won't be able to order cookies online unless you're directly contacted by a Girl Scout. There are some concerns about girls' safety, and beyond the fact that only Girl Scouts can initiate sales, the organization is taking numerous precautions. Girl Scouts can reach out to people by email, and only that recipient can access the girl's profile. If the email is forwarded, the link to the Girl Scout's profile will be broken, a Girl Scouts representative told Mashable. Not all Girl Scouts will have access to Digital Cookie, either.
