Selling Fall Product Online

The QSP/Nut Online Program allows girls to take nut, candy, and magazine orders by sending emails directly to family and friends!

Here's how it works:

  1. Visit the QSP website 
  2. If this is your first time participating in the Fall Product Program, choose First Time Visitor, complete the required information, then click Save. 
  3. If you've participated in the Fall Product Program before, choose Returning Participant.
  4. Invite your friends and family to visit your personal online store where they can purchase nuts, candy, and magazines from you!

We encourage girls to send emails the first week of the program to allow time for their customers to order prior to the end of the program, and to qualify for girl recognitions and troop proceeds. This easy way of participating in the program enables the girls to learn valuable marketing and technical skills.

Guess what? Girls may participate in the online sale even if their Troop does not! Contact us at girlscouts@gssn.org for more information.

Recognition Items

Who doesn’t love a little recognition for their hard work? Even though we know participating in the Fall Product Program will teach girls valuable life skills (5 to be more precise), there's one more reason the girls really love participating: PRIZES! 

Girls can earn amazing rewards based on the number of items they sell during the Fall Product Program! The 2017 recognition items were voted on by girls this spring, and road tested by a group of local Girl Scouts this summer. 

Check out the lineup of 2017 Fall Product Recognitions here or on your order card and help girls make goals and develop a plan to exceed them.

Proceeds

Troop proceeds are based on actual sales that occur from October 1 – 22. Troops can earn $.80 per nut/candy item or 10% of the price for every magazine subscription (new or renewal).

Thank You Donation

Each $6 donation will send a selected nut/candy item to a member of the military via our partner, Blue Star Moms of Nevada. Girls will earn a Share Patch for selling three military nut orders. Its easy to do, and the troop will still earn proceeds on every donation!
