Clarifying the Trails-End website and the app (Hint! They have different purposes)

 

Is selling online vs. app better than the other? Do you care which one we use?

No, the choice is up to you.

 

Do we have to create the account at Trail’s End if we’re only doing traditional door-to-door sales?

Yes, everyone should create an account at www.trails-end.com. The online account is:

  • Used for administrative purposes so sales can be tracked regardless of method (online, app, storefront, door to door, etc.). A scout code is generated when he creates this account.

  • Online account is needed by the scout in order to get prizes from Trail’s End.

  • Brothers need their OWN accounts. Parents can use the same email address to set them up.

 

NOTE:  You will need the following Unit information to correctly link your scout's account to Pack 6 and have our Pack get credit for the sales:  Council = "Westchester Putnam Council"; District = "Algonquin”; Unit = "Pack 6 Crestwood"

 

What are some reasons to download the Trail’s End app?

The app is used to:

  • Sign up for storefront sales (e.g., sales outside Masses, train station, supermarkets).

  • Enter orders from Take Order Form.

  • Note:  Parents should KEEP the paper Take Order Form. It is the official record for collecting money and delivering orders. Do NOT give it to your den leader.

 

Where do I go to create the online account and to download the app?

ONLINE, go to www.trails-end.com (access from a laptop)

APP STORE, download Trail's End app (download to your smartphone)

 

How does an order through the Trail’s End WEBSITE work?

(Sell Online/Immediate Shipping DIRECT to the customer…think Amazon)

The scout:

  • Sends his Trail’s End code to potential customers via email, social media.

  • The customer uses the code to order and pays online. The popcorn is shipped directly to the customer. This is great for family/friends who live far away. Transactions are processed and delivered right away.

  • IMPORTANT:  Please do NOT duplicate/repeat the online order in the app.  That would create a double order. Rest assured, we can see your scout’s online orders in the Leader Dashboard.

 

How does an order through the Trail’s End APP work? [WATCH VIDEO]

The app is essentially an electronic version of the paper Take Order Form. You will use the app to submit sales made door-to-door or by parents at work.

  1. Open the Trails End app and start a “Wagon Sale”

  2. Add Products (use plus or minus sign). TIP:  Now that we are at the end of the fundraiser, you have two choices for entering your son’s sales:  A) Recreate the line-by-line entries from the order form OR  B) total the quantity for each product and enter each quantity in the app. Check your addition!! We cannot fix any errors in order entry.

  3. Tap “View Order Summary” in the blue bar.

  4. Option for Military Donation. Tap “Skip to decline”, or enter amount and tap “Add to cart”

  5. View the order summary. BE CAREFUL!! THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT POINT IN THE ORDER. Each product will default to “Delivered.” This status only applies to scouts who sold door-to-door with actual product in a wagon. If you didn’t do that, you MUST tap “Delivered” to change it to “Undelivered.” See attached image. Military will always have a “Delivered” status.  After your final review/okay, tap “$ Take Payment” in the blue bar.

  6. Payment is encouraged at the time of sale. At the Payment Type screen, tap “credit/debit card” or “cash.” Tap “Record Customer Info.” Record just enough information to know who your customer is and if they paid or not, e.g., “Grandma PAID”, or “Uncle Jack UNPAID”. Unfortunately, we need to add “UNPAID” since Trail’s End doesn’t offer an unpaid button.

  7. “$ Take Payment” If credit card, tap “Manual Credit Card Entry”

  8. Congratulations! The order has been successfully recorded. (Optional: Take your customer’s information in order to send a receipt via text or email.)

WARNING/DANGER

 

REMINDER #1:  For step #5 in the app, change the status for each product from “Delivered” to “Undelivered.” If you leave it as “Delivered,” we will NOT order the popcorn and your customer won’t get his order.

 

REMINDER #2:  Do not enter a copy of your online order in the app, or vice versa. This would create a duplicate order and you would be financially responsible. Enter orders once…either online or in the app.
