Our yearly fundraiser:
No more paper needed!
All sales will be through the Trail's End website or App for your phones this year.
Two ways to access Trail's End:
All scouts must first sign up for your Trail's End scout account online on the Trail's End website
1) Trail's End Website: Use your Trail's End account from your PC to enter "wagon sales" or share through social media or email out to family and friends
2) Trail's End App: Download the Trail's End App for your Apple or Android phone and share through social media and/or go door to door and enter "wagon sales" in the app directly and receive payment with a credit card. (See below for details on using the app)
Note: One benefit of using the website or app is the ability for customers to pay via credit card. If you choose to use the paper forms, please transfer all orders into Trail's End as a "Wagon Sale" in order to get your order submitted. This helps reduce any errors in reading the paper forms. See details below.
Goal for each Scout:
Your sales will cover your scouting dues for the upcoming year if you hit the target sales goal. Our pack goal for each scout is $TBD in sales! We have many scouts that reach and exceed this goal each year while learning skills in communication and sales while having fun!
Note: Sales below the target goal will adjust the dues amount owed for the upcoming year. You may also opt out of selling popcorn and pay your full scout dues directly. Information on the opt out will be provided after the closing date of the popcorn sales.
You may, on occasion, have customers who are not interested in buying popcorn but ask if they may donate to the pack. You have a few options:
You may accept cash or check (payable to "BSA Pack 166"). You can turn this in with your popcorn sales and have it directly apply to your dues.
Direct them to the website if they would like to use PayPal or a Credit Card: https://www.txcubscoutpack166.org/giving. Make sure they enter your name so you get credit for it.
In Trail's End: Enter a sale as "Donate to Heroes and Helpers"
Two ways to use the app:
1) Enter a "Wagon Sale" when going door to door where you will deliver the popcorn at a later date
2) Enter "Online Direct" when making a sale to have it shipped directly to the customer
Note: We do not have any Storefront sales planned
Use a wagon sale when going door to door to make a sale
Make sure to mark the sale as "undelivered"
Orders will be available for pick-up and distribution a few weeks after the sales closing date (more details to come)
After delivering, mark your orders as "delivered"
Online Direct Sales
You may enter "online direct" sales yourself that will be shipped directly to the customer.
You may also share your online site via social media, email, etc. to have customers place online orders that will be shipped directly to them. Your online site may be shared via the website or app.
