QR Codes are a great way to share links to your individual or troop
Digital Cookie Storefront, contact-free! If you've never made a QR
Code before, or you want to make one that's on-brand for Girl Scouts,

Building the QR Code
Copy your Digital Cookie link and open your QR Code generator app!
GSWO uses QR
Code Monkey to build our branded QR Codes.

Exporting the QR Code
Once you’ve selected all of the
settings above, preview the QR Code by clicking the green Create QR
Code button under the preview. If it looks right, select the size you
need from the slider (1000px by 1000px is the default and should be
fine in most instances), then click Download PNG.
Now you can print your QR Code and use as needed! We recommend
adding a note to any printed pieces that say something along the lines
of "scan this with your phone's camera to buy Girl Scout Cookies
online!" so those who aren't familiar with QR Codes know what to do.
