FAQs About Being An Avon Representative And Selling Avon

Maybe you’re considering selling Avon or becoming an Avon Representative but you have questions.

I don’t blame you. Starting an Avon Business is starting a business. And, no doubt, you’ll want to get your questions answered before you jump in.

Whether you want to become an Avon Representative because you want to earn more money alongside what you’re already doing or around your kids and family, or are looking to get a discount on your own products, or if you’re looking to build a big Avon business from home, Avon can be very rewarding and profitable with a little hard work.

With Avon, all dreams are possible. It’s up to you how much effort you want to put into your Avon business. If you set your mind on a goal and work hard to achieve it, you can accomplish anything with Avon.

So in an effort to help you with your research, let’s go through some common frequently asked questions:

What Is A Campaign?

An Avon Campaign is a selling period of two weeks. There are generally 26 campaigns every year (some have 27). Each campaign corresponds with a new brochure to sell from.

How Do I Know When My First Avon Order Is Due?

Our new Flexible Ordering program gives you the freedom to work your business on a schedule that works for you. No longer are you tied to a specific day that you need to place your orders.

You now have the freedom to choose your order day or place as many orders as you’d like during the two-week campaign window.  The dates will be listed at the top of your back office.

This flexibility allows you to better serve your customers by scheduling your order day around their needs. You can order as early as the first day of the campaign and place as many orders as needed for two weeks!

Do I have To Meet A Sales Quota Or Minimum Order?

As an Avon Representative, there is no sales quota.

In order to keep your Avon Representative account open, there is a requirement to place an order at least once every 6 campaigns. If you have not placed an order for 6 consecutive campaigns, your account will be closed.

However, you will want to at least order brochures for each campaign so you can continue to grow a strong business.

After all, it’s kind of hard to sell without any brochures to show. 🙂

But then again, Avon does offer a unique Digital Brochure you can use for free.  It’s fun and interactive, and will help you grow your business at no cost.

Do I Have To Keep An Inventory?

The great thing about Avon is this is your business and you get to run it the way that works best for you. There is no requirement to keep any inventory.

Some Avon Representatives choose to bring in a couple of extra products for spot sales or events they are working on throughout the year.

And some Avon Representatives like to keep inventory on hand so they can sell it on demand.

Personally, depending on your circumstance, I generally suggest you do not keep any inventory.

Your brochures are your Avon Store. Use your brochures to your advantage and to grow your business. The more you invest into your brochures, the more orders or new customers you will receive.

How Much Money Will I Make Selling Avon?

When you sign up to sell Avon, you will earn a 25% commission on all Beauty & Jewelry products.

You will earn 20% on the “fixed earnings” products. These are products in the Avon brochure that have a diamond ❖ symbol in front of its description, such as purses, clothing, shoes, etc.

As your sales continue to grow, your commission percentages will also increase… all the way up to a possible 50% earnings.

And with our Quick Start program, you have the opportunity to earn an additional 5% commission within your first 4 months.

If you’ve looked at Avon before, you will note that this is a NEW, exciting, simplified commission structure.

Do I Receive a Discount On My Personal Order?

You will receive the same discount as you would earn in profit.

From time to time, Avon also offers special deals and bundles to Representatives which gives you even higher commission.

Are There Any Other Costs To Selling Avon?

Yes, this is your own business, and as such you have business expenses.

You are responsible for buying our own brochures and sales tools. Avon provides many sales tools at a very low cost for Representatives such as samples, bags for your orders, etc.

I always recommend you set a budget for how much you will spend on sales tools to grow your business. But again, this is your decision.

How Is Sales Tax Handled?

The government is always going to get their sales tax. 🙂

Normally, if you were to start your own business you would have to get a license from your local Sales Tax commission and would have to report your sales to them.

Luckily Avon handles this for you so you don’t have to worry about it.

Avon charges you the sales tax when you place your order, and they handle all reporting and paying of taxes to the government.

You will definitely want to collect sales tax from your customer to cover that expense. It is part of every purchase no matter where you make that purchase, and your customers already expect to pay it.

If you’re not sure how much sales tax you should be charging, you can look on your Avon invoice to see the amount they are charging you, or you can look it up online.

Just Google “sales tax and (your town).”

Do I Have To Pay Shipping Charges?

Yes, you are charged shipping with your order. It’s actually very minimal – usually between $8 and $17 depending on the size of your order.

We strongly suggest you charge each customer a $1.00, or even up to $4.00, Order Processing Fee to help cover these expenses.

How Do I Get Paid As An Avon Representative?

As an Avon Representative, you earn a commission from your sales. Avon charges you for your order at a discount based on the size of your order.

Your earnings are the difference between what you collect from your customers and what you have to pay Avon.

Any online sales commissions will be credited to your Avon account bringing down the balance of what you owe Avon.

If you are selling Avon online only, you can create some buzz with a social media post that directs potential new customers to your Avon-provided online store.

When your customer makes a purchase, your earnings will be delivered to your bank just 2 days after their order is billed.

Keep posting on social media, building your online influence, and getting more and more people to your online store.  Soon you’ll receive deposits into your bank account every day!

There are also other earning opportunities when you take advantage of Avon’s Leadership Program.

When you bring in new Representatives, and train and mentor them, there are cash bonuses available there as well.

You will receive these bonuses direct deposit in your bank, via PayPal, or even on a prepaid Debit Card.

Do I Have To Attend Meetings?

There are many types of meetings available to support you in your business.

Sometimes Avon will hold local meetings. I may hold local meetings and online meetings from time to time. I also do Facebook Live training.

These are all there to help you be successful.

But as stated before, the great thing about Avon is you get to choose how to work your business, and as such, meetings are also optional.

However, they are an awesome source of new information and connection with other Avon Representatives and will help you be more successful in selling Avon.
