If you are talking about a public school, I would run all sales through your ASB secretary, as the laws are usually pretty strict when it comes to cash handling.  At the school where I work, all sales are run through the ASB office, then the students who purchase a yearbook can take their receipt to the Yearbook room to claim it.  This removes all cash from the hands of students, which avoids the temptation some might have to pocket it, and keeps you from having to worry about a state audit or just from keeping track of it all.

You can also have the ASB secretary print you a list from time to time with the names of those who purchased books in advance, and then just have the students deliver the books to those on the list in say their 1st period class.  Just some thoughts.  But whenever possible, I try not to handle cash directly.  Good luck!
