Selling door to door requires a Solicitor’s Permit. Profit and non-profit organizations, as well as individuals, are permitted to conduct door to door sales in residential neighborhoods provided an approved Bethel Park Police Department Solicitor’s Permit is secured in advance of conducting sales. Solicitation in commercial districts is regulated/permitted by each individual business.
Profit and Non-profit organizations are required to secure a permit for each and every individual that will be selling door to door on behalf of the organization. No sales are permitted to begin until the application has been approved, and a solicitor’s permit identification has been issued by the Bethel Park Police Department. The permit must be visibly displayed by each individual engaging in sales.
