Girls who do not receive the Smart Cookies e-mail should contact their Troop Cookie Manager or our Customer Care Team at   Helpful Tip: When creating a girl’s Smart Cookies account, parents should check the Opt-in for Social Media Link Girl-Delivery Box to yes only if the girl/parent elects to receive orders for girl delivery through her social media link (this is an order placed via Facebook or another social media platform where the Girl Scout obtains the cookies from the troop inventory of cookies and delivers them to her customer). Please note that all orders placed for girl delivery through her social media link MUST be approved via a pending approval e-mail within five days of the order being placed or the order will be cancelled. Below is an example of the approval e-mail:
