“How will I be paid?”

When you deliver your orders, you collect the payment from your customer. In your delivery you will receive an invoice detailing how much your discount is and how much to pay Avon. Out of the payments you have collected in, you pay Avon and the cash left is yours.  Online orders discount is credited to your representative account.

“Will it cost me anything to join Avon?”

When you register your account with Avon you will have a choice of Welcome Kit, there is no cash outlay as these are sent within 48 hours on a thirteen-day payment invoice, if you change your mind simply return the Welcome Kit to Avon.

You can get your welcome kit for free by selling £100 (if you ordered the Welcome kit) or £250 (if you ordered the Ultimate kit) in your 1st campaign. Avon will credit you the full price back to you.

“Do I have to sell door-to-door?”

No – although the traditional way to sell Avon is door-to-door, we have many team members who simply sell to friends and family, at work, through social media online and with the Online Stores.

“What help and support do I get?”

All representatives get full help and support from their team leader, the wider team and Avon. Avon send weekly emails and have a dedicated online training section.

As a member of our team we also provide a dedicated Facebook group for representatives, team emails and regular online and offline meetings.

“How do I pay Avon?”

When you collect the money from your customers order you keep your discount and the rest will be payable to Avon. Your invoice will have a giro slip attached that you can take to your local Post Office with the cash (there is a small charge of 57p for this method of payment). If you prefer to pay by debit or credit card you can do this over the phone or in your representative online account

“What happens if a customer can’t pay for their order?”

Representatives never pay Avon for goods they haven’t collected the money for. In this instance we would claim a credit from Avon and deduct the amount off your invoice amount payable. You would then return the goods to Avon by handing it to your Avon delivery driver on their next delivery or taking to your local post office.

Never leave an order with a customer without payment.

“How often do orders go in?”

There is no limit to the amount of orders you can place per month. You get a certain amount of free orders per month for orders over £35, depending on what Avon Reward Level you are at. All extra orders are charged at £1.50 per delivery. See the chart below. All orders under £35 have a £3.50 delivery charge. Express orders will be delivered the next day if ordered by 10am or within 48 hours – there is a charge at £5.

“Can I miss a brochure?”

You can miss a brochure although most representatives find their customers will wish to see a brochure every campaign. If you must miss an order due to holidays or for personal reasons, then you can always place a small order for your next brochures to keep your account active.

“Do I get charged for returns?”

Returns can be sent back to Avon free of charge with your delivery driver or by taking them to your local post office.

“Do I have to attend meetings?”

No – but they may be beneficial for your business. You will be notified of local meetings held by your area manager and team leaders but you do not have to attend. As a team member we hold regular drop in meetings and online video meetings.

“How do I get started?”

We can complete the sign up via video link – WhatsApp, Zoom, Facebook video call etc. You must have photo ID for video calls or a meeting away from your home address. We can arrange a home visit, if necessary.

First Look showcases the new products coming out two brochures ahead and you can order them for demonstration with at least 30% discount. First Look also has a clearance section with massive discounts on discontinued, end of line and repackaged stock – exclusively for representatives.

“What are Avon’s payment terms on orders?”

Avon will send your order with no payment upfront, if it’s within your credit limit. The order will contain an invoice detailing how much to pay Avon and how much to keep yourself.  Payment must be received by 13 days from the date of the invoice.  Extra charges may be applied if payment is late.

If no payment is made by the due date, then your next order may be ‘held’ and not sent to you until the invoice amount due is cleared.

“How much do Avon brochures cost?”

The cost of the brochures depend on which Avon Reward Level you are at. The brochures come in packs of 5 so for example of you buy 20 packs of 5, you will receive 100 brochures.

“Where can I promote my online store?”

Anywhere you would like to! The personal online store link to your store can be posted on social media, emailed out, used on flyers, canvassing cards, business cards or shop ads.

“What customer delivery options are there with the online store?”

Customers can choose local representative or courier/pick up from a parcel shop for a small postage charge.  Customer orders over £20 are delivered by courier free.

“What payment options are available for customers?”

As a representative you can offer what payment options you wish to take. I have cash, cheque, PayPal, bank transfer and card payment with my chip and pin machine. Online direct delivery customers have the option of payment by credit or debit card or PayPal.

“Am I restricted to a territory?”

There are no restrictions now on where you can drop your Avon brochures.  All Avon representatives must follow an etiquette guide when canvassing for customers. As well as finding customers door to door you will have your network of friends and family who you can show brochures to and the Online Store to sell from Nationwide.

“Can I sell just online?”

All representatives have their own online store to sell from and can choose to sell online only.  Representatives can earn up to 32% discount on store orders. The online store allows you to sell anywhere in the UK.

“What if I don’t want to continue Avon?”

We hope that you will stay with us long term as a member of our team. If your circumstances do change though and you need to close your account, then all you need to do is clear your balance and notify your team leader.
