1. How Much will I earn?
Avon representatives are given a discount on the customer orders they collect in. £87 and over in customer orders earns 20%. £160 and over in customer orders earns 25%.
2. 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 yourself.
3. Will it cost me anything to join Avon?
There is no upfront fee to try Avon. The admin fee of £16 is spread over your first two orders with £10 charged to your account on your first order and £6 charged to your account on your second order. This is paid out of what you earn on the order. If you do not place a first order, then no fee is payable.
4. I want to finish 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. When you have missed three orders your account will become inactive, when you miss eight orders your account will fully close.
5. 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 or through social media online.
6. What help and support do I get?
All representatives get full help and support from their team leader, area manager and Avon. Avon send weekly emails and have a ‘Learning Zone’ online plus their great forum ‘Beauty Connects’. As a member of our team we also provide a dedicated Facebook group for representatives and regular drop in meetings.
7. How do I pay Avon?
When you collect the money from your customers orders 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. If you prefer to pay by card you can do this over the phone or in your representative online account.
8. Do I need to drive?
No – generally we will be able to allocate you with an area within walking distance of your home. If you wish to check this with us first please contact us, with no obligation.
9. A customer can’t pay for her order.
Representatives never pay for orders they haven’t collected the money in for. In this instance we would claim a credit from Avon and deduct the amount off the amount payable. Then return the goods to Avon. Never leave an order with a customer without payment.
10. How often do orders go in?
Avon order dates are three weekly through out the year, with the exception of over the Christmas/New Year selling period when they reduce to two weekly. There are eighteen brochures a year.

Rachel Beecham – I was working at a part time job before AVON and they started to want me to work more hours, which I couldn’t handle as I had a child out of school at the time that I needed to look after. So I decided to look into finding a job that would fit around my life and that job turned out to be Avon.
