FAQ about Selling Avon Q: How does it all work?

A: To start your own business, you will simply show the Avon brochure to your friends and family and show them the new products with samples and/or demos (if you choose to purchase). The pay with Avon is strictly commission and is based on how much you sell in a two week campaign. You are responsible for finding your own customers. Your “customers” (friends and family), give you their orders. It’s best to ask for payment for their order at this time. You can also collect 50% of their payment and the rest when you deliver the product. The commission ranges between 20% – 50% based on how much you sell. NEW! Avon is offering New Representatives an opportunity to earn $1,000 in 90 days! Check it out here! This is SO exciting!

Here’s how it works: we go around with the brochures for two weeks and collect orders with full payments from customers, then we tell Avon what we need to fill the orders. At the time you submit your order, you will be asked to submit a payment to Avon which equals the wholesale “cost” of the products. Avon ships us the products and we take them and deliver to our customers. The customer will have already paid you the brochure price (retail). The amount you earn is the difference between the brochure price and the wholesale cost of the products.

To use the above example of the $300.00 order, you’d pay Avon $195.00 at the time you place the order and keep the $105.00 profit immediately. Then, you enter the orders in online by your due date. The order will arrive at your house in 2-4 business days. For example, my order is due every other Monday by 11:59pm and then it arrives at my house on Friday. Your order will be delivered by UPS. When the products arrive from Avon, simply deliver them to your customers with the next brochure. There is a statement/invoice with your order that tells you exactly how much you earned on each item and what your expenses are.

Lastly, you deliver the product to your customer and collect the remainder of their payment (if owed any)! Show them the next brochure and ask for referrals to new customers. Easy as that! When you’ve collected all of your customers payments, you keep your earnings and pay Avon before you place your next order. Here’s my quick video answering How does selling Avon work?

 

Q: How much can I make selling Avon?

A: How much do you want to earn? There are two ways to make money with Avon.

Selling – You will receive up to 50% commission on all products sold. NEW! Avon New Representatives can earn $1,000 in 90 days!

Below is Avon’s current earnings chart for representatives 2017.

Avon Earnings Chart 2017 - How much do you make selling Avon?

Order Size and earnings:

$1,575 or greater – earn 50% ($787+)

$925 – $1,574.99 – earn 45% ($416 – $786)

$500 – $924.99 – earn 40% ($200 – $415)

$300 – $499.99 – earn 35% ($105 – $199)

$150 – $299.99 – earn 30% ($45 – $104)

$0 – $149.99 – earn 20% ($0 – $29)

 

A small amount of items that are not manufactured by Avon, you will earn 20%. These products have a diamond by their description in the brochure. The commission ranges between 20% – 50% based on how much you sell. To give you an example: if you sold $300.00 worth of products, you’d earn $105.00 because that would put you at 35% commission. The average representative earns between 30-40% every campaign.

Leadership – You can also earn additional income by recruiting, training, and mentoring new Representatives. There are wonderful new incentives for representatives that start building their team including a bonus structure and up to 10% of your team’s sales!

Minimum credentials include: you must be over 18 years of age, have a drivers license, checking account, telephone and credit card with your name on it. (ATM card with the credit card symbol does count). You can also use a re-loadable prepaid card to set up your account. You also need internet access since much of our business is now conducted online.  

 

Q: Does Avon check your credit?

A: From what I have been told, Avon does not check your credit or your credit score. Avon does verify the address on your ID card. Avon just wants to make sure that you are who you say you are and not signing up under someone else’s information.  

 

Q: Am I required to attend meetings?

A: The short answer? No. Your District Sales Manager may hold group meetings in your area designed to share product training or program incentives. If so, you will be contacted in advance in order to add the event to your calendar. When you attend the meetings or events though, you usually will receive some samples for your business or a goodie bag. The District Managers do raffles and giveaway products often too! They’re so much fun!

Plus it’s nice to meet other representatives in your area and hear what helps them make their business successful! I’ve always enjoyed going to the meetings because I will ALWAYS learn something about how to earn more money with Avon and you get to be inspired by all of the other representatives that have done what you’re starting to do! Avon has recently started having virtual meetings. Webinars and conference calls are often and most of the time there a replays so that you can watch on your time.    

 

Q: Is there training for new representatives?

A: Avon offers extensive, on-line training that you can access 24 hours a day, seven days a week to enhance your business called Avon University. Avon University offers so many webinars that are available to you as a representative including launching your business, best selling approaches, skin care webinars, makeup tutorials and many more to keep you busy learning!

50 Tips to Grow your Avon Sales  

 

Q: Do I have to have parties?

A: You are not required to have any parties. However, many Representatives find group selling to be a very lucrative way to sell more products, broaden their customer base, and build their network marketing organization. If you do choose to participate in group selling, Avon offers various training and support materials to assist you.  

 

Q: Do I have to keep products on hand?

A: At Avon, you are never required to keep a stock of products on hand. You may find, however, that your customers have personal favorites that are helpful for you to have available for last-minute needs. In addition, as a Representative, you are offered exclusive promotional opportunities to purchase products in advance.  

Also, there are NO sales quotas or minimums you need to buy.  

 

Q: How often do I have to place an order?

A: Avon has 26 sales campaigns throughout the year. Each campaign reflects a two-week selling period. Contacting your Customers every campaign gives them the opportunity to purchase their Avon favorites, see new products, and take advantage of special offers. You’ll find that contacting new and potential Customers on a consistent basis will result in your placing an order each campaign. If you decide to only place an order once a month, that is your decision BUT you will miss out on the special deals and new items during the missed campaign order.  

 

Q: When and how do I submit my orders?

A: You will submit orders online every campaign (2 weeks). Immediately when you become a representative, you will be given an order (RPS) schedule which details the dates orders are due and shipped. For example, my orders are due every other Monday by 11:59 pm and arrives at my doorstep that Friday.  

 

Q: How do I pay for my order?

A: At the time you submit your order, you will be asked to submit a payment to Avon which equals the wholesale “cost” of the products. Avon ships us the products and we take them and deliver to our customers. The customer will have already paid you the brochure price (retail). The amount you earn is the difference between the brochure price and the wholesale cost of the products.  You can immediately pay Avon by credit or debit card online or by phone.

You can also pay online directly from your checking account using Avon Quikpay. But this is not immediate – you will need to send a blank check into Avon to be signed up for this free service. Please do not send your personal check to Avon for payment of your order. You payment will not be processed and you will not be able to place your next order until your balance is $0.00. Check out my Money Management Tips for New Representatives.  

 

Q: Does Avon set me up with a personal website?

A: YES! You can share your site with friends and family all over the United States AND U.S Military bases around the world! And this is FREE with your Avon account! No charges for your eStore! Your customers can order products that will be shipped to them directly from Avon and your customer pays the shipping fee.

Avon has FREE SHIPPING offers regularly and you can tell your customers when they are valid. Your customers can also choose Personal Delivery and their order will be included in your product order for you to deliver to the customers.    

 

Q: Can you make money with Avon online?

A: Absolutely! As a new representative, you earn 40% on all online orders through your eRepresentative/eStore site when you take advantage of the new incentive of earning $1,000 in 90 days! What a fantastic deal because you don’t even have to touch the product!

NEW!! Avon sets all representatives up with a Social Media Center and gives us all of the tools to show off what Avon has to offer with one click!  

 

Q: How do I receive future brochures?

A: Every campaign (two weeks), you will place a product order. At that time, you will purchase your future brochures. Brochures are always ordered two campaigns in advance (four weeks) so that you will have them in plenty of time to include them in your Customers’ orders, and to share them with new or potential Customers.

For example when I am placing my campaign 8 order, I will be ordering campaign 10 brochures.

The prices for brochures are as follows:

Packs Total

1 10 brochures $6.49

2 20 brochures $8.89

3 30 brochures $11.39

4 40 brochures $13.69

5 50 brochures $15.09

6 60 brochures $16.09

7 70 brochures $17.39 8

80 brochures $18.79

9 90 brochures $20.09

10 100 brochures $21.49

11+ $21.49 (for first 10 packs) + $1.69 for each additional park

Again, the goal is for you to be earning enough money that buying 100 brochures is easy. I will show you how!
