Door-to-Door Sales in Baldwin City

July 18, 2022

Summertime means door-to-door sales people. Here’s what you need to know about how the city handles requests to sell in town.

  • Anyone going door to door or selling from the street or their vehicle must apply for a license through the City Clerk.
  • All applicants go through a background check.
  • Once fees are paid and background check clears, the applicant is issued a permit to show they are allowed to do business inside city limits.
  • Please note - the city in no way endorses any business or individual licensed in this manner. This is simply permission to work in town, similar to a normal business operating license.
  • Each solicitor, canvasser, or peddler must show their identification and city permit upon request.
