Clover Go App

Clover Go is a credit card processing app available for all of our troops and all of our girls! This means troops and girls will be able to accept credit cards at booths and when going door to door. All funds are directly deposited into the troop banking account making it fast, easy, and efficient to accept credit cards!

Clover Go Training:

Clover Go Introduction and Troop Boarding
This shows the initial step by step Troop Boarding process. This is the process that verifies Troop Cookie Manager membership and connects their troop to Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri in the Clover system. The Troop Cookie Manager must complete this portion of the training and the instructions at the end of the training in order to receive their Clover boarding link.

When you buy a box of delicious Girl Scout Cookies, you’re powering amazing, year-round experiences for every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) extraordinaire in your community who sells them—that’s right, proceeds stay local and are reinvested in girls!

Big picture: as a cookie customer, you’re actually helping the next generation of female entrepreneurs get an important taste of what it takes to be successful—teamwork, planning, and a positive outlook. Beyond that, you’re actually narrowing the gender gap in entrepreneurship by nurturing girls’ skills early and often. How awesome is that?

Whether it’s a trip to a breathtaking place she’s never been, a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) project that will change the way she thinks about the world, or an opportunity to attend Girl Scout camp and revel in the power of the great outdoors, at Girl Scouts every experience helps her unleash her  G.I.R.L. spirit to do amazing things for herself and her community and grow into the incredible woman she’s destined to become.

But wait, there’s more! By selling cookies, girls develop five essential skills—goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—all of which help them succeed today and in the future. They grow their confidence and practice leadership, too.

What an experience! That’s why the Girl Scout Cookie Program focuses on her—because it’s about so much more than delicious treats. It’s about supporting girls’ success through the biggest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world—SWEET!
