No girl, or adult acting on behalf of girl members, can collect money online for Girl Scout products or a money-earning activity online. The exception to this is GSUSA approved product programs.
Girls are only to use the internet to market the Girl Scout Fall Product Program to friends and family. Friends and family are people whom the girl or her family personally know.
- The Girl Scout Product Programs are girl-led programs, and online marketing and sales efforts should always be led by a girl while also being supervised by her parents or caregivers.
- Friends and family of a girl participating in Girl Scout Product Programs must not market or share a girl’s contact information, sales links, or sales information on public-facing online sites (examples: Craigslist, yard sale sites, Facebook Marketplace, neighborhood sites, Amazon, or e-Bay). They also should not share their sales link with any news outlets (this includes online and traditional news media, such as radio, television, or magazines).
- For safety purposes, online marketing activities, especially those conducted through social media platforms, should always be done through accounts set to “private”.
- Should any online marketing activities be identified as in violation of this policy, GSUSA or council reserves the right to intervene and request removal or remove the post.
