Scouts that accept credit card payments make more popcorn sales than those who do not. Scouts are able to use Paypal as a payment method, but will have the transaction fees deducted from their profits (2.7%). Download the Paypal Here app onto your mobile device, enter your firstnamelastname as the email, troop685 as the password, and select Show and Sell to accept payments when you have the popcorn with you. If you are doing Take Order, when you have the order form but no product, use the Take Order option instead.
Signing Up for Show & Sell
If your Scouts would like to participate in the Show & Sell phase of the sale, when they stand in front of stores and ask customers if they'd like to support Scouting buy purchasing popcorn, you will need to sign up on the Troop's Sign-Up Genius. Each week the sign-up will be posted on Tuesday morning for viewing. Beginning on Tuesday evening at 7 pm, Scouts may sign up for for TWO 2-hour slots. If Scouts would like additional slots, they may sign up for them beginning at 7 pm on Wednesday evening. Unless told otherwise, pick up is expected 30 minutes before your shift at 2905 Canyon Valley Run, and drop off is expected within 30 minutes after your shift at the same location. All unsold product and monies received should be returned at that time.
