How does Selling Avon Work?
What is an Avon campaign? Each Avon campaign runs for two weeks. There are 26 Avon campaigns in a sales cycle. Based on your zip code, you will be assigned to a district and become part of a mail plan / given an RPS (Representative Processing Schedule) which determines which day of the week your order is due. All new Avon Representatives must submit their Avon orders online or via FAST Talk (Avon’s automated phone system).
How much does it cost to start selling Avon?
Whether you sign up in-person with an Avon Leadership Representative or you sign up to start selling Avon online
, you can choose from 3 different starter kits which help build your Avon business. The kits start as low as $25.
Do I have to sign up to sell Avon with a local Avon Representative?
You do not have to sign up to sell Avon
under someone in your area. You will however be assigned to a district in your area and have a District Sales Manager who will be local to you and be able to provide you support through monthly meetings and continuous communications.
Do I have to meet a sales quota with Avon?
The beauty of being your own boss with Avon is there are no sales quotas to meet. The only rule as far as sales requirements go is you will need to submit at least a $50 order each Avon campaign in order to earn commission. If you don’t have enough Avon orders to submit a cumulative $50 in orders for a given Avon campaign, you can either place the order and skip the commission for that campaign to keep your customers happy or wait until the following campaign to place the order. You will not be removed as an Avon Representative
unless you have four campaigns in a row of not placing an order.
Will I have an Avon sales territory?
Absolutely not! There are no sales territories with Avon which gives you the power to build a huge customer base all over your city, state, or even further. With the power of the Internet, you can sell Avon online
to customers all over the USA.
Are there any other costs associated with selling Avon?
Yes, there are a few other costs you should be aware of with selling Avon
. Each campaign that you place an order, you will be charged the One Simple Fee. It starts at $5.95 and covers the cost of shipping & handling and your own personal Avon website. Don’t worry though…when you collect the .75 cent order charge from your customers, it is yours to keep to cover your Avon selling costs. The only other costs you will be responsible for when selling Avon
is buying your own catalogs (starting at $6.49 for a pack of 10 and get less expensive the more you buy), samples (optional), and sales tools (Avon branded sales tools like bags – also optional).
Does Avon provide training? Yes but because this is your own Avon business, it is up to you to take advantage of Avon events, online training courses, and read Avon materials. Avon will not force you to do anything so you must be self-disciplined and make the most of your business if you want to be a successful Avon Representative.
How much do you make selling Avon?

, you earn 20 – 50% commission based on the size of your order. There are additional earnings opportunities though selling Avon online
