If you join my Avon team, I will mentor you on how to run a successful beauty business. My goal is to inspire Passionately Avon Team Members with ideas on how use their personal discount on products and provide the ways selling to others to earn some extra money. I look for people who are self-motivated and have an entrepreneurial drive or mindset. I want my team members to be successful at selling Avon. Here are some FAQs about selling Avon.


In a few easy steps, you can become an Avon Independent Sales Representative and start your own business. There are three options for signing up with Avon: the No-Cost Sign Up, Sign Up & Make a $5 Contribution to the American Cancer Society, and the $30 Starter Kit Signup. The Starter Kit includes a FREE personalized online store and digital tools, an incredible set of favorite products in full and sample sizes, plus product-packed brochures (catalogs) to share. The Starter Kit is usually delivered within 5-7 business days. With the other two sign-up options, you get started your own online store and the digital tools but do not include products, brochures, or samples. After you sign up, you will receive a welcome email and should go your online website to explore the Avon product line and start your training. You should personalized your online store so you can begin to sell products and manage your business. Becoming a brand new Avon representative can be a very daunting experience but support is always close at hand. As your Avon Leader/Mentor, I’ll welcome you to the Avon team and begin to share my tips and guidance to help you get your business off to a successful start.

Avon has top-rated beauty products at reasonable prices. Your online store is full of brand names favorites and has something for everyone. Founded over 135 years ago, Avon has become a well-known brand and this it makes it easy to sell. You’ll get a 25% commission/discount on $40+ beauty orders of makeup, skin care, personal care, health & wellness, and more for customer purchases or your own. You’ll also get great rewards with your first order: A FREE gift product ($37 value) when you place a first order of any amount, plus a $10 credit to use for your next campaign order when the first order is $60+. Our Pathway to Premier incentive helps you earn up to $3,300* in your first 8 campaigns (Avon’s two-week selling periods) and get you to those Premier Level earnings super-fast with three new bonuses. The Premier Level rewards Representatives with sales of $5,000 – $9,999 per year with guaranteed commissions of 30% on Beauty orders. You can increase your earnings potential by recruiting, training, and mentoring new Representatives. Fashion & home products offer a 20% commission/discount.


Customers can choose to order through your personalized online store and have the order shipped directly to their door. Online customers receive FREE SHIPPING with any $60 order. For online orders under $60, the customer pays the flat rate of $8. While Avon continues to pick up most of the actual shipping costs, the shipping fee for online $60 orders are shared by you & Avon so your commission is adjusted $8 on those online Direct Delivery orders. Representatives who place a home delivery product/selling tools order for themselves and their face-to-face customers pay a $8 shipping & handling fee. To help cover the Representatives shipping fee, you can add a nominal Service Charge to each face-to-face delivery order to help spread out the costs for Avon shipping fees, delivery fuel and handling costs. The default fee is $.75 but you can choose a service charge fee amount to best meet your own business needs. Online customers have the option to choose Representative Delivery. These orders are drafted to your order cart to submit as part of your Avon Representative order. There are additional shipping surcharges applied to orders going to Alaska and Hawaii addresses.


You can pay by credit card, directly from your checking account, or using PayPal. Your earnings from online store orders, Leadership bonuses, incentive cash pay-outs, account credits can be used to pay down your account balance or set up for auto-transfer to preferred accounts like banking, PayPal, Venmo, or prepaid credit card. Some Representatives find Avon’s “No Credit Line” challenging to run their Avon business but I like to point out that this is a common policy for most other direct selling companies and a standard business practice. Collecting an upfront payment from customers may be something that they are more used to than you think. Most customers will have no problem paying for their items when they give you their order and it will become easier in time. Avon Reps have a two-week campaign period to take their face-to-face orders and collect payment from your customers.

  • What will happen next? As your Avon Leader/Mentor, I’ll welcome you to the Avon team and begin to share my tips and guidance to help you get your business off to a successful start. You should personalize your online store next and then let family and friends know about your new beauty business.
  • How do I purchase brochures? You can place a home delivery of brochures through your online store. The English brochures are available for purchase in packs of 10 for $6.75. Spanish Avon brochures are also available. Share a FREE Digital Brochure to encourage customers to shop online.
  • How much are samples? Avon has many samples available at nominal cost ranges and an example is $2 for 3pc skin care sample pack.
  • Are there other selling tools? We have optional tools to purchase like flyers, shopping bags, and fundraising kits.
  • What kind of training is available? With sign up, you gain access to AVON U, a FREE online learning center designed to inspire and support you and your beauty business. Avon meetings and conventions are optional attendance but are always full of inspiration and motivation. They generally include social selling business-building seminars, introductions of new product launches, and recognition events for top Representatives.
  • Is selling Avon hard? Truth be told, there is no such thing as instant success. A good outcome takes time, effort, and patience. Most importantly, it takes the willingness and dedication to try new things and stick it out. My first year was spent learning the beauty business, educating myself on the products, and perfecting my sales pitch. In year two, I saw customer and sales gains, as well as what worked and what did not. By my third year, I could see that I was making money, enjoyed the company’s new product innovations, as well as working with my customers.
  • How did you get started? I started by sharing brochures with family and friends and following up to see if they had product questions, needed product suggestions, or have orders.
  • What products do I focus on? Avon sells skincare, cosmetics, perfume, mens fragrances, shampoo, toothpaste, shoes, jewelry, bras, watches, and more. I would concentrate on selling skin care, makeup, personal care, health & wellness since these offer the largest commission levels.
  • How often do I need to order? You don’t have to place an order every campaign (every two weeks) but you will need to place an order every sixth campaign (every twelve weeks) to remain “Active”. There are no quotas to meet and the order size doesn’t matter but your commissions (discounts) are based on the published 2022 Career & Compensation Guide.
  • What was your most positive sales experience with Avon? After selling for 12 years I have built a nice side-gig that yields additional income that has helped me save for retirement, build an emergency fund & cover my son’s college expenses.
