Cub Scout Pack 219

Selling Popcorn Online

Online Sales are used as a supplement to the Take Order Sale and should not replace the door to door experience.

Online is the best way to sell to friends and family who live out of town. Scouts can send emails to customers asking them to purchase Trail's End products online. Customers click on the link in the Scout's email and can begin shopping right away. Customers order products online and pay with a credit card, and Trail's End ships the products directly to customers.

Advantages:

  1. Scouts can reach customers who they otherwise would not be able to sell to.
  2. No product delivery or money collection
  3. The average consumer order online is $50.00 (excluding shipping and handling).
  4. Online orders of $90.00 or more have free freight!
  5. Ability to sell popcorn year-round.
  6. Online sales count towards Scout Rewards and Scout Accounts.
  7. The unit earns 35% commission on all online sales.
