4.  Collect Money for orders

                        Match the funds vs. emails to make sure everything is accounted for.

         *** Customers have the ability to pay via Credit Card at end of Web Form.  If paid for via card, then no money needs collected. ***

5.  Turn in all money and verify orders that were submitted (OCTOBER PACK MEETING)

    All orders MUST be paid for at this point.  Any order not paid for will not be processed. 

    If customer has not paid, if an arrangement is to be made, it must be between customer         and parent.

                             We will not be selling on Consignment, as in years past

6.  Popcorn orders will be picked up before November pack meeting by pack leaders

7.  All Orders will be distributed to the scouts at the November pack meeting

                      Scouts (with Parent Help) are then to distribute their orders to customers, thanking them                              for supporting scouting and Pack 36.

8. Have scout celebrate at the annual Pack 36 Popcorn Lock-In and collect their prize for selling!

 

Tidbits:

- Trying to drive ALL orders through the pack 36 website, for ease of tracking

www.pack36maineville.com/popcorn

- If you have a customer who fit all of these situations, see the Pack 36 popcorn leader:

Lives out of town

Will NOT be in town to pick up order after November

Order cannot be shipped by parent

- Store “Show & Sell’s” are different from this process and will be handled outside of this process.
