It will soon take just a few clicks for the most addicting treats in existence to be delivered to your doorstep.

Mashable reports that the Girl Scouts of America earlier today announced the creation of Digital Cookie, an online platform for Girl Scouts to sell cookies.

Each scout has her own profile to manage the sales, which the organization says is meant to teach the girls how to run a business in the age of technology.

They’ll additionally have the option of using an app that will manage direct shipping and process credit card payments from in-person sales.

Digital Cookie director Sarah Angel-Johnson told the New York Times,

Girls across the country now can use modern tools to expand the size and scope of their cookie business and learn vital entrepreneurial lessons in online marketing, application use and e-commerce.

But don’t go crazy yet because there are a few catches.

First off, you’ll only be able to order cookies if a Girl Scout sends you an invitation via e-mail directly, and sales can take place after you accept it.

The girls’ profiles can only be viewed by recipients of these emails, and forwarding the email will break the link to the information.

It’s also up to each group’s council to decide whether the troops can partake in the program.

Lastly, the cookies will still be available only during the times of the year when girl scouts ring your doorbell.

Digital Cookie will launch later this month in certain areas before becoming a national program in January.

An estimated one million scouts are expected to participate, and will most likely significantly increase the $800 million raised by the 112 Girl Scouts councils a year.
