Popcorn Sales – 2019

The Popcorn program enables your unit to do the things you want without running many fund raisers.  By selling popcorn in the fall, you can support an entire year of Scouting for your unit. This is an officially approved council-unit money-earning project that many packs, troops and crews participate in each year.

Different Ways To Sell Popcorn:

Show and Sell – a booth type sale

Scouts sell popcorn they have at various locations,asking people to “…support them in their Scouting program.”  See separate tab for details and suggestions.  Sale goes from August 10th through October 28th.

Take Order – a door-to-door type sale

Scouts sell door-to-door with their order form.  All products including those containing chocolate can be ordered.  Visit neighbors, ask relatives, have mom and dad take an order form to work.  Sale goes from September 13th through October 28th with product delivery on November 16th.

Show and Deliver – a door-to-door type sale

Selling door-to-door with product in-hand allows Scouts to make the sale, deliver the product, and collect the money all in one visit. Show and Deliver occurs at the same time as Take Order selling – September 13th through October 28th.

Show and Deliver Information

Online Sales

Online sales allow your Scouts to reach beyond their neighborhoods and sell across the country. Customers order online and CAMPMASTERS ships the popcorn directly to them. You do not have to handle any popcorn or money yourself. Online sales count toward prizes and commissions.

Online accounts are created at the individual Scout level. The “Single Sign On Link” is sent to each Scout by their Popcorn Kernel. New selling Scouts are set up by their popcorn kernel or can self register.  Click on the link below to register or access your Scout account.  August 1st – December 22nd.

Additional Tools

Show and Sell – Order on Consignment

Due to the large amount of Show & Sell returns in 2018 the Popcorn Committee has revised the Show & Sell order policy.  For 2019, your initial Show & Sell order should not be any larger than the total Show & Sell order for 2018.  The final 2018 Show & Sell amount will be displayed on the Popcorn Materials & Custom Commission Pick Up Receipt.  If you wish to place a higher initial Show & Sell order, please contact Mark Spaldo with your sales plan.

Remember – we keep extra inventory at the Council office in Cedar Knolls.  If you are running low on a particular product(s) let us know as soon as possible and we can make it available for you to pick up.

Get permission to sell near a store or other heavily trafficked area. You order full cases of popcorn, pick up your order on August 10th.  (The 50% payment on your order isn’t due until October 14th.) You provide a table, chairs, signs and cash for change.  You can also borrow a 2019 Remote Credit Card Machine or 2019 Square Reader for Credit Card, Chip & Contactless.

Each Scout can count a portion of your sales toward their prizes.  All sales count toward your commission.

Any leftover popcorn can be used to fill your Take Order Sale needs.

Note: Chocolate Popcorn is not available for Show & Sell.
