Sell Popcorn Online!
Selling online is the best way to sell to friends and family who live far away. Online sales count toward Scout rewards. Participants can send emails to friends and family asking them to purchase Trail's End products online. The email includes a link allowing them to begin shopping right away. Customers can pay with a credit card, and the products are shipped directly to the customer by Trail's End. The advantages of online sales is that the Scout doesn't have to collect money or deliver product.
The Military Donation allows customers to support the military and Scouting at the same time. Customers can choose to donate $55 (gold level) or $35 (silver level) worth of popcorn for our troops when ordering online, or $50 or $30 for take-order sales. Trail's End sends various Trail's End products to men and women in the military, their families and veterans' organizations. There is no shipping and handling charges associated with Military Donations. Over 2,000 tons of popcorn treats have been shipped to hundreds of locations around the world! Military donations also count toward Scout rewards.
Scouts who sell at least $2,500 (online, face-to-face or combination) qualify for the Trails End College Scholarship Program
