Merchandise booths are created when you begin a new sales booth operation using the Booth Sales page.

Merchandise booths represent a location where you sell merchandise directly to your customers over a period of time, accepting payment and giving out the merchandise at the same time.

Many troops have seasonal fundraisers in which they sell pumpkins or Christmas trees, where this function is useful.


The Merchandise Booths page allows you to view and update the booths that were created from the Booth Sales page.  You'll find this on the Sales menu.

Click the Update button to view the details of a given booth.  If a booth has not yet reported any sales, you can delete it with the Delete button.

On this page you can modify the details of this booth.
