Avon is one of the most popular ways to start your own direct selling business. Considering that Avon is one of the best-known cosmetic companies around the world, selling Avon can be a lucrative opportunity for someone who is looking to make some extra money.

This article aims to answer all of your questions about selling Avon. After reading this, you will have a better understanding of how Avon works.
What is an Avon Campaign?
An Avon Campaign is a selling period of two weeks. There are generally 26 campaigns every year (some have 27). Each campaign corresponds with a new catalog to sell from.
Am I required to place an order on a specific day?
You can now place your order any time you want during Avon's two-week Campaign cycle. It's your business and it's up to you. However, I strongly suggest you pick a day and develop a routine around that day to make it easier for yourself and your customers.
What is the cost to start selling Avon?
Regardless of how you signup, the cost starts at $25. You can choose from the $25, $50, or $100 starter kits, depending on which kit works best for you.
Do I have to sign up with a local Representative?
Actually, you get to choose who you want to work with. They can be local or they can be across the country! So you could even join my team, regardless of your location!
Does Avon have Sales Quotas?
One of the great things about Avon is you are your own boss. It’s up to you how much money you want to make, and as such, there are no sales quotas to meet. You will start earning on the first dollar of sales. Your Avon account will not close unless you miss six campaigns (12 weeks) of orders.
Does Avon have sales territories?
Nope! There are no sales territories with Avon, meaning you can build your business all over your city, state, or even across the United States. With the power of the Internet, your Avon business is wide open!
What other costs can I expect to incur with selling Avon?
There are a few other costs that you’ll want to consider. You are responsible for shipping costs when you place your Avon order. The only other costs you will incur are buying your own catalogs (starting at $6.49 for a pack of 10 and gets less expensive the more you purchase), samples (option) and sales tools such as delivery bags (also optional). Don’t worry though… when you collect the 75-cent order-processing fee from your customers, this will help cover your business expenses.
Does Avon provide training and support?
Yes. We have all kinds of training available. Avon teaches you how to build your business on social media, and has all kinds of training in Avon U. Our team also offers all kinds of support and training. 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.
Once you place your order, Avon will bill you for the net cost of the products (minus your discount on that order), shipping and handling charges, any sales tools you order, and sales tax. Whatever is left over from what you collected from your customers is your earnings.
Amount Collected from Customers – Amount you Owe Avon = Your Profit
How do you get paid for Selling Avon Online?
The commission from your online sales will show up as a credit on your Avon account. If you are only selling Avon online, your credit balance will continue to accumulate until Avon owes you more than $25.
When your credit balance is more than $25, Avon will direct deposit the credit into your bank account. The Direct Deposit is done on the 1st and 15th of the month and will take approximately 2 business days to show up in your bank account.
How do you get paid for building an Avon Team?
When you start inviting others to Sell Avon and start building your own team of Avon Representatives, you will be eligible to earn bonus money through incentives and Leadership Earnings. Once you achieve the Leadership Level of Ambassador, you will start earning a percentage of your team’s sales. This will be paid every two weeks directly into your bank account or via a prepaid Visa card.
