Take Credit Cards for FREE at Your Troop’s Cookie Booth!
If your Girl Scout council does not offer free credit card processing for your troop’s cookie booths, you’ll need to set up your own account. The easiest and cheapest way to do this is with Square! When you’re earning about $0.60 on a box of cookies; you’ll want a free account to avoid all the processing fees.
Square has a great referral program that Troop Leaders and Cookie Moms can use to save the troop some money. When you sign up for a new Square account, you’ll receive $1000 in free credit card processing – that’s about 250 boxes of cookies. Once your Square account is set up, you’ll have a referral code to share. Every referral code used, will earn your troop another $1000 in free credit card processing.
It’s always a good idea to check with your local council to confirm they allow the use of third party credit card processing.
